Personal Notes:
Instructions for use:
For ordinary infections, 1 tsp taken 5-6 times a day for several days will deal with most conditions. For more serious viral infections, increase to 1 tsp per hour.

This very old recipe has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, and anti-parasitical properties, as well as it cleans out your sinuses!

Hint: wear gloves while chopping the onions and peppers and whatever you do, don't touch your face.

Another hint: the leftover ingredients make an excellent border for your vegetable garden - bugs definitely don't like it!

The Usual Mandatory Disclaimer: This tonic is NOT intended to replace a visit with your doctor, but to supplement his or her recommended medical treatment.
