    i am mixing up some herbal dewormer for goats and sheep and i'd appreciate your suggestions and cautions.
    • 1/2 cup whole or powdered Clove
    • 1 cup Cayenne Pepper powder
    • 1 cup Cinnamon powder
    • 1 cup Garlic, dried
    • 1 cup Ginger Root powder
    • 1 cup Mustard seed powder
    • 1 cup Psyllium seed powder
    • 1 cup Rosemary leaf powder
    • 2 cups Sage leaf
    • 2 cups Thyme leaf
    • 2 cups Wormwood
    i will make a black walnut hull powder (1c) and/or tincture (but i haven't included it because i've seen some cautions about black walnut and pregnancy, not sure on that but i think it's fine).

    no diatomaceous earth because of dust risks and i'm not convinced it's effective unless it's dry.

    i need to find dried wormwood and would like to add 1/2 c, increasing for certain cases and non-pregnant animals. are cinnamon and clove okay during pregnancy?

    i'd avoid dosing this during important lactation times due to sage, are there any other herbs in this mix that dry up milk?

    we'll add some fresh garlic too, but the minced is cheap and can't hurt. i think it also gets them used to the flavor and accepting of the fresh stuff.

    btw, my keyboard is not working hence no caps!

    Keep in mind sage will stop milk production.

    I'm wondering how you came up with this? I am interested in making my own herbal mix too, but I would have no idea where to start.:dazed:
