A brief description of some of the uses of BBL:
BBL and ASP (antispasmodic) are used in a similar manner, but I find BBL to be more effective when applied externally than ASP and, when taken internally, BBL is more relaxing generally. ASP is just as strong at relieving muscle cramps.
BBL is particularly helpful for healing and relieving the pain of ear infections. Use 3 to 5 drops in the ear with 3 to 5 drops of EO. Place a bit of cotton ball in the ear after applying the tinctures.
BBL is also useful for coughs, bronchitis, asthma conditions, uterine and pelvic problems, insomnia, headaches (back of head at base), high blood pressure, heart palpitations, and the onset of colds. Use in childbirth to relax the pelvic muscles. Remember BBL for rebuilding or healing nerves, as well as for relieving pain.
A few drops of BBL at bedtime can help you relax into sleep. BBL is especially calming for children. Use 20-40 drops in the tub for relaxation and pain relief. For convulsions brought on by fever, put at least 2 dropperfuls of BBL in a tub of tepid (lukewarm) water and place the child into it.
For internal use 10-20 drops is generally used.
