Liquid Herbal Extraction Methods
Our liquid herbal concentrates were made using the traditional alcohol tincturing method. Pure organic (non-GMO) grain alcohol is an effective solvent for extracting and preserving medicinal properties in herbs. Alcohol-based tinctures stay chemically active for many years.
Liquid herbal concentrates in a few drops of alcohol also make an efficient way for the medicinal properties to rapidly absorb into the bloodstream. If taken under the tongue, the absorption time is almost immediately. The amount of alcohol in a normal dose of our concentrates is minimal, comparable to 1/50 of a dose of cough syrup. If preferred, you can add the concentrate to hot tea and stir, and in a few minutes some of the alcohol will evaporate off. Or pour 2 oz of boiling water into a cup containing the droppersful. Some alcohol will also evaporate for the most part, when you stir it in room temperature water for a minute or two.
Real Herbal Teas
We offer herbal teas with similar ingredients to many of our concentrates because water extraction brings out different properties than alcohol tinctures. These are usually milder properties, so a good way to get maximum benefit is to take both, by putting a few drops of the concentrate into a cup of tea.
Our teas are not powdered and bagged. They are the potent roots, leaves, berries and stems of the plants which you can see, whole chunks retaining their properties until you soak and simmer them. This means they are strong and have a more powerful effect than many processed, packaged teas, and also can be re-used to make more than one pot of tea.
Our formulas are free from fillers and have no gluten, artificial ingredients or animal products.
Our herbal cleanses and nutritional support formulas contain organically grown or wild-crafted herbs. We know that high-quality organic and wild-crafted ingredients are key to making healthy products that work. As much as possible the wild-crafted herbs are from US harvesters who use care to preserve the balance of the environment.
