Our Tinctures

What are tinctures?

Tinctures are a key component of traditional herbal medicine and have been around for millennia. They are a concentration of herbal extracts made by soaking specific plants in alcohol for few weeks. The alcohol extracts the active ingredients in the plant parts, concentrating them in liquid form. Alcohol-based tinctures have virtually unlimited shelf life if stored in a cool, dark place. Refrigeration is not necessary.

Why should I use tinctures?

Tinctures offer a concentrated herbal experience, providing higher doses of medicinal compounds than teas. They encompass a broader spectrum of medicinal compounds compared to teas, thanks to alcohol's superior extraction capabilities. Tinctures provide a convenient and efficient means of herbal consumption; no need for multiple cups of tea. Through the mucus glands in your mouth, tinctures offer swift absorption of medicinal compounds directly into your bloodstream. They're minimally processed, easy on digestion, and can initiate their effects within minutes, depending on the formulation. Tinctures bypass the digestive system, ensuring your body receives their benefits in seconds. When stored correctly, tinctures boast a long shelf life, lasting several years for your continued wellness

Why is there alcohol listed in the ingredients?

Alcohol is essential to extract the medicianal properties out of the herbs. The dosage is typically 1-2/3ml of liquid and will not cause intoxication. 

How long can tinctures last?

All our tinctures are packaged in amber glass to protect them from UV degradation. It is recommended to store them in a cool, dark place; there is no need to refrigerate. When stored properly, tinctures can last for 3-5 years or even longer.

How do I take tinctures?

Tinctures can be taken either by placing the liquid directly under the tongue and then swallowing it with water or by adding the liquid to a beverage like coffee, tea, juice, or water. Placing it under the tongue allows for faster absorption into the bloodstream, but both methods are equally effective.

Do I have to take tinctures under my tongue?

No, you don't have to. While placing a tincture directly under the tongue offers the fastest absorption into the bloodstream, we understand that it can be too sensitive for some individuals. If this method isn't suitable for you, feel free to add the liquid to a small glass of water or juice and drink it. The benefits will be the same with both methods.

Why do you ship your tinctures in the dropper caps?

Our tinctures are carefully packaged in amber glass bottles fitted with dropper caps. These caps function similar to essential oil droppers, allowing you to control the release of drops by tilting the bottle. Unlike dropper pipettes, which have proven less reliable during international shipping with issues like leaks. Additionally, we've observed that using pipettes over time can lead to alcohol evaporation, potentially affecting the longevity of our tinctures. If you prefer, you can easily insert your own preferred dropper into our tincture bottles for added convenience.

Our Capsules + Powders

What are the key features and benefits of your herbal capsules?

Our herbal capsules are made out of the most potent roots, seeds, mushrooms, and berries found in the wild or home-grown by us. They provide fast & strong effects for specific health conditions. Typically, we recommend using them in conjunction with a specific tea (you can find recommendations in the descriptions) for an extra strengthening and supportive boost. Furthermore, we grind and prepare everything only when we receive the order to ensure freshness and retain minerals and vitamins. If capsules aren't your preference, we're happy to pack and ship your chosen formulation in loose powder form!

When should I take my herbal capsules?

Our formulations are designed to target specific organs or actions, and we provide recommendations in the product descriptions and packaging. For instance, if you're using a formulation that supports the liver, it's best taken before bedtime because the liver meridian is most active at night. Additionally, we suggest aligning your use of our blends with different body meridians to maximize the benefits.

Why do you suggest using certain capsules and teas together?

Our medicinal teas contain water-soluble compounds, which complement the effects of the capsules. When used together, they enhance efficiency and provide additional benefits in addressing specific health conditions.

What should I do if I'm not comfortable swallowing capsules?

We understand that some individuals may prefer not to swallow capsules. Not to worry! If you're more comfortable, we can ship your chosen formulation in loose powder form, as explained in the text above. This way, you can still enjoy the benefits of our herbal blends in a form that suits you best.

How big are your capsules?

Our capsules are size 00 and contain 750 mg of herbal goodness.

Our Medicinal Loose Leaf Teas

What is a medicinal loose leaf tea?

Medicinal loose leaf tea is a traditional form of herbal medicine, where blends of medicinal plants are presented in loose leaf form. These herbal blends are steeped in boiling water, creating a soothing and therapeutic beverage. This method of introducing medicinal plants into the body has ancient roots, long before the era of factory-processed tea bags.

Unlike tea bags, loose leaf tea allows you to use whole plants, providing complete transparency about the ingredients entering your body. When you choose teas crafted by our family of herbalists, you can trust that the plants are either organically grown or wildcrafted, free from synthetic fillers, and thoroughly clean.

Before the advent of modern pills and pharmaceuticals, our ancestors turned to the healing power of plants, sipping these gentle infusions to support their well-being. Medicinal herbs in loose leaf tea form offer a patient and enduring path to wellness, as their subtle magic unfolds over time.

How to make herbal tea?

Crafting your own herbal tea is a simple and delightful process:

  1. Begin by measuring 1-2 teaspoons of loose leaf tea and place it into a tea infuser, a strainer ball, or an empty tea bag.
  2. Bring water to a boil and pour it over the tea in your chosen infuser or container.
  3. Allow the tea to steep in the hot water. To achieve the full potency of the herbal blend, typically steep for around 15 minutes. Stirring occasionally is recommended during this time.
  4. Here's a crucial tip: Cover your cup with a lid or a plate while your tea is brewing. This step captures the essential oils released as the plant cells' walls open, ensuring they become part of your herbal tea. These oils play a vital role in the healing and well-being benefits of your tea. Additionally, covering your cup helps maintain the tea's warmth while you wait!

Enjoy the nurturing qualities of your homemade herbal tea as you embark on a journey of wellness and relaxation.

When should I take my herbal tea?

The timing of consuming our herbal tea blends can enhance their effectiveness. We've designed our blends to target specific organs or actions, and you can find recommendations in the product descriptions and packaging.

For example, if you're using a formulation that supports the liver, it's most beneficial to take it before bedtime. This aligns with the body's natural rhythms, as the liver meridian tends to be most active at night. We also suggest aligning your use of our blends with different body meridians to maximize the benefits specific to your wellness goals.

Can I enjoy my herbal tea alongside other supplements?

Certainly! Our teas are gentle and harmonize well with your daily supplement routine. If you have any concerns, it's always a good idea to consult with your healthcare provider.
