This herb provides a basis for the treatment of chronic (long-lasting) skin diseases such as psoriasis, acne, acne rosacea, eczema and boils. Mountain grape has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial actions that make it very useful for skin problems.
How to take
I recommend using it for internal treatment in the form of tincture.
Adults: 1-2.5ml diluted with some water, 1-3 times a day, tincture strength 1:2.
Children (2-16 years old): adjust the internal adult dose downwards, depending on the age of the child – see post 6.
