Herbal Tinctures

Tinctures are one of my favorite ways to ingest herbal medicine. They are quick, easy to take & have a long shelf life. Alcohol also does a fantastic job at extracting different types of herbal constituents. All of my tinctures are made with certified organic alcohol & extracted based on the ideal alcohol percentage. Many of my homemade tinctures are used in various syrups & elixirs to enhance synergy & variety of constituents in a formula. I use both maceration & percolation methods within the apothecary & do experiment with glycerin extractions. This is season I hope to capture the healing benefits of many herbs in the garden through tincturing.

Herbal Bitters

The “bitter” taste is definitely one most of us have to acclimate to, but there are countless benefits bitters provide for our body. All you need is a couple drops to experience that bitter taste; afterwards your body sends signals to your digestive system to gear up for food. They enhance the production of digestive juices, stimulate peristalsis, promote beneficial intestinal flora & aid in liver detoxification. Best taken 20 minutes before a meal. Even after large, stagnant dinners, bitters have helped me digest & feel more comfortable. I have come accustomed to the taste & love my bitters! My bitter herbs are infused in organic vodka & are delightfully…well bitter.

Ingredients: Organic Vodka (40%), Burdock Root (Artium lappa), Dandelion Leaf (Taraxacum officinale), Ginger Root (Zingiber officinale), Chamomile Flowers (Matricaria recutita), Elecampane Root (Inula helenium), Peppermint Leaf (Mentha x piperita) & Orange Peel (Citrus x sinensis)

Use caution for heartburn, peptic ulcers & gastritis, bitters may aggravate these conditions. If pregnant, nursing or on medication, consult with your health care practitioner first.
