Herbal Extracts & Tinctures

Created thousands of years ago by our herbal ancestors, liquid extracts are still a favorite medicinal preparation today. Among the advantages of herbal extracts is their ability to preserve the active constituents in plants, their long shelf life, and almost immediate effect. Extracts can be easily added to water, tea, juice, or taken directly by mouth.

Ratios: You will find the “Herb Strength Ratio” listed for each of our herbal extracts. These ratios tell you how much solvent to plant was used to create your finished tincture. For example, a ratio of 1:4 tells us that 1 part herb was used with 4 parts alcohol.
