Three-Ingredient Amish Ibuprophen Recipe For Natural Pain Relief

Sometimes simplicity is best.

By Rootbound HomesteadPublished 2 months ago 4 min read

With spring finally here, the earth is about to start showing its medicine in the form of plants, flowers and roots. Nature has given us herbal medicines that have been used to reduce inflammation and discomfort. The Amish in particular have their own easy recipe that we "worldly people" lovingly call Amish Ibuprophen.

The Amish are, of course, known for leading a modest and rural lifestyle that places a great emphasis on natural connection, self-sufficiency, and very little to no reliance on contemporary technology.

The best part? Three ingredients. That's it. There are three natural, powerful ingredients in this Amish Ibuprohen. Dandilion, rosemary, and apple cider vinegar. Let's find out why it's so potent:

Health Benefits Of These Ingredients:


Natural medicine has utilized dandelion root to treat a range of conditions, including pain, inflammation, and digestive problems. They include high levels of iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium, and the vitamins A, C, and K. They also include strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory qualities.


It's a common kitchen ingredient, but because of its strong analgesic and anti-inflammatory qualities, rosemary is a fantastic natural medicine for pain management.

Packed with properties like camphor and rosmarinic acid, rosemary is well-known for its ability to ease pain and reduce inflammation. This makes it especially helpful for people with disorders like arthritis, aches in the muscles, and joint discomfort. Furthermore, rosemary's capacity to enhance circulation may help lessen pain from blood flow problems, such as migraines and headaches.

Apple Cider Vinegar:

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is a powerful and adaptable natural treatment that has been used for millennia to treat a wide range of health conditions. Fermented apples are used to make apple cider vinegar (ACV), which includes acetic acid, which has potent antibacterial and anti-inflammatory qualities.

I suggest purchasing organic apple cider vinegar (ACV) that has "the mother," a good bacteria that gives vinegar its many health advantages, to get the maximum benefits from it.

Homemade Amish Ibuprophen Recipe


  • 1 cup fresh dandelion roots, leaves, and blossoms; or 1/2 cup dry
  • Rosemary, 1/4 cup dried or 1/2 cup fresh
  • Two cups of unrefined raw (with "the mother") apple cider vinegar
  • A glass jar with a lid that fits snugly
  • A cheesecloth or a sieve
  • A dark storage bottle


Gather the fresh rosemary and dandelions.

Rinse gently to get rid of any dirt or insects. Let the plants air-dry on a fresh towel or paper towel.

Put the rosemary and dandelions in a glass jar.

Cover the herbs with two cups of raw apple cider vinegar, making sure they are submerged.

Store the jar in the refrigerator or in a cool, dark area after sealing it with a tight-fitting lid for two weeks. If you're using a jar with a metal lid, make sure to place plastic wrap or baking parchment paper over the top of the jar before screwing on the lid. If you don't, the vinegar will corrode the metal and cause it to rust.

Remember to give it a quick shake every day, or every few days, if at all possible. As the air bubbles climb to the surface on day two, you might need to top off the ACV. The apple cider vinegar will absorb the therapeutic elements of the rosemary and dandelions during this time.

After two weeks, strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer or a piece of cheesecloth, being careful to extract as much liquid as you can, and store it in a dark glass bottle with a plastic top. This will lessen the elixir's exposure to sunlight.

Storage: You can keep it in a cool, dark place or in the refrigerator. The elixir will keep for around a year if you use fresh herbs and closer to two years if you use dried herbs.

How To Use Amish Ibuprophen

There are several ways to use this adaptable elixir to help reduce pain and inflammation. The Amish Ibuprohen can be included in your everyday routine in the following ways:.


Applying Amish Ibuphrophen directly to the affected area is one of the best methods to use it. All you have to do is dab a clean cloth in the elixir and apply it over the affected area if you have arthritis, muscular aches, or joint discomfort. You can also gently massage the elixir into the skin with your fingertips or a cotton ball. Dandelion, rosemary, and apple cider vinegar all have anti-inflammatory qualities that can help with pain relief and swelling reduction.

Warm Compress

Before applying the elixir to the skin, you can warm it up a little. Simply reheat a little in a pot over low heat, taking care not to boil it. Apply a clean towel soaked in the heated elixir as a warm compress to the affected region. The heat will aid in boosting blood flow and lowering inflammation even further.

Bath Elixir

Pour two cups of Amish Ibuprophen into a warm bath and soak for at least twenty minutes to provide relief for the entire body. This might be especially beneficial for people who are stiff or experiencing broad discomfort because the apple cider vinegar infused with dandelion will help relieve sore muscles and joints.


Amish Ibuprophen can be taken internally to help reduce pain and inflammation, in addition to topical uses. Up to three times a day, mix one or two teaspoons of the elixir with a glass of water or your preferred herbal tea. When taken on a daily basis, apple cider vinegar can aid in maintaining digestive health and possibly offer further pain relief.

Massage Oil

To make a calming massage oil, mix Amish Ibuprophen with a carrier oil, like coconut or olive oil. Mix thoroughly using a ratio of one component elixir to three parts carrier oil. To reduce pain and inflammation, gently massage the oil into the afflicted regions. Again, warm it to further it's healing properties.
