- Tinctures-

Tinctures are concentrated liquid herbal extracts that you take orally. Herbs, roots, barks, leaves, or berries are extracted for 6-8 weeks in alcohol, which acts as a potent solvent. Traditionally, vodka or brandy is used to make a tincture. Alcohol is used in order to break down the cell wall of the plant, allowing the plants bio-active compounds to be released and stored into the alcohol.

Tinctures are very concentrated but easy and convenient to use. It’s best to be taken directly under the tongue for the fastest and most effective results. Tinctures can also be mixed with water or juice, or for a quick tea you can add a dropper or 2 full into hot water. Tinctures are highly absorbable, concentrated, compact, and will last a lifetime if kept away from direct sunlight. These features of herbal tinctures make them an convenient, easy, and effective way to make herbs a part of your life, no matter where you are.
