This is a very easy Homemade Herbal to make. When you buy corn, keep the silk and make these wonderful diuretic tincture drops. Or, you can use the silk to make a diuretic tea.
Use it fresh or dried. Cut off all the bad stuff so you only use the good silk. Dry the cornsilk in an open dish in the shade and once it’s dry it’s easy to keep on hand as a dried herb to make more tincture or tea. Cornsilk makes a mild diuretic and the taste is very pleasant and sweet.
Do not drink at the end of the day as it might keep you up at night. Using a teapot with a built in infuser makes it easy to use and it looks so elegant.
Or you can just buy the herb for tea or buy the tincture. The tincture tends to work faster that the tea.
