Wild lettuce contains a milky-looking latex that acts as a sedative. It is a hypnotic nervine, meaning it helps induce deep, healing sleep. It can also be used as a gentle muscle relaxant and to calm overactivity and restlessness. As an antispasmodic, it can be used for dry, irritated coughs. It can help relieve colic pains in the intestines and uterus and can help with muscle pain related to rheumatism.
This alcohol extraction tincture was made with wild lettuce (Lactuca virosa) organically grown by me here in northern Vermont. It was made with grain alcohol and contains approximately 50% alcohol.
