Natural Antibiotic Tincture – Recipe

This tincture can be easily prepared at home with the use of the following ingredients:

– 2 cups of garlic

– 2 cups of rosemary

– 2 cups of nasturtium

– 4 cups of vodka


Peel the garlic and cut it in thin slices. Put it in a jar and let it soak with the rosemary and the nasturtium leaves and flowers. Add the vodka and close the jar tightly. Let the mixture soak for 14 days, then strain it. Take 20 drops 3 times per day to combat infections and viruses.

Effects and Benefits

Very few of us know that the nasturtium leaves and flowers are edible and have medicinal properties. They can be used in salads, omelets, sandwiches, as garnish or to prepare vinegar. Those, having them in the house can be extremely useful. The nasturtium can also be used for bronchial infections, dry cough, allergic rhinitis, urinary tract infections and cystitis. This plant can also be applied externally for alopecia (use the fresh nasturtium juice for this and apply it on your scalp), wounds and skin rash.

If you don’t like tinctures, you can also prepare nasturtium tea. Add 1 handful of leaves and flowers to 2 cups of boiling water. Let them infuse for 15 minutes. Drink 3 cups of tea per day for 1 week. If you do stick to the tincture, make sure you take 1 to 3 teaspoons of it 3 times per day. Always dilute the tincture in ½ glass of water.


You mustn’t use the tincture or the nasturtium plant if you suffer from ulcer or acid gastritis. This plant and the alcohol in the tincture can irritate the gastric tissues.

Otherwise, if you don’t suffer from any of these diseases, you can use the antibiotic tincture whenever you have a bacterial, fungal or viral infection. It’s also beneficial during the cold season so as to stay away from colds and flu. Prepare more bottles of the tincture to always have it at hand.

  1. Could you please share the storage recommendations? Would that be in a dark coloured glass jar, or does that matter? And is refrigeration needed, or will a cool, dark pantry/cupboard work? Also, what is the expected shelf life according to proper storage method?
