Henbane

"Henbane is the new love of my life." ~ Kolyada

"I was worried that it wouldn't live up to my expectations because it might not be strong enough. Boy was I wrong! The nice thing about a single herb ointment is that you'll know beyond a shadow of a doubt how you respond to it, and it can be mixed with the other single herb ointments if you feel the need. However, sometimes it's all you need." ~ Christy

"Two years ago I had major abdominal surgery for cancer. Over the past month and a half, I've developed some complications of the original surgery with some hernia formation. I've had great success managing my preoperative obstructive pains, and my postoperative repair incision pains, with the wormwood and henbane ointments -- using one or the other depending on how much mild drowsiness I could accept in what I was doing at a time. Thank you from the bottom of my heart... or, actually, the bottom of my abdomen, which is where the surgical scar runs" ~ Bill, MD
