What are Tinctures?

Tinctures have been a cornerstone of traditional herbal medicine for millennia. They are potent herbal extracts created by steeping specific plant parts in alcohol. At Alma Báltica, our handmade tinctures are crafted with love and expertise by an experienced Certified Herbalist & Naturopath, using a blend of our home-grown and wildcrafted plants. Every tincture we offer is 100% pure, natural, and undiluted, delivering the full nourishing benefits to support your wellness. Alcohol-based tinctures have virtually unlimited shelf life if stored in a cool, dark place. Refrigeration is not necessary."

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
