Tincture of Melilot herb (Melilotus officinalis) 1:3 25%
Melilotus officinalis, organic grain alcohol
The therapeutic dose of coumarin has been established at around 1mg/Kg per day, although higher doses have been recommended. This corresponds to 15 ml of the melilot tincture per day, divided into 3 doses - so 5ml 3 x per day, when used on its own. Melilot is often combined with other cardiovascular herbs such as hawthorn, lime flowers, motherwort and horse chestnut, where it is used in lower doses allowing for a synergistic effect with these herbs.
Do not use if taking blood thinning medication such as warfarin and aspirin.
