Glycerites are liquid herbal extracts that use vegetable glycerin as the extraction menstrum instead of alcohol. Because of the natural, almost nectar like sweetness, they are suitable for children and pets. They are also recommended for those with alcohol intolerance and people concerned about their liver health. Unlike alcohol extracts, glycerin extracts have a shorter shelf life of only 1-2 years.
The glycerites offered by Mountain Rose Herbs are extracted with organic glycerine via cold infusion and are Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth. Just a touch of organic rosemary antioxidant is added for stability.
