Tinctures are botanicals (herbs and other plant materials) concentrated in alcohol(vodka), or vegetable glycerin(we use mainly MCT a derivative of coconut oil) to extract their phytochemicals. The advantage to using tinctures over other forms of ingestion(teas, etc.) is that you get the full range of constituents from the botanical(s) when you tincture them. Some plant materials do not dissolve in water so if you were to make a tea you may not get the full benefit, the full range of nutrients that a specific plant contains. Also in an extraction(tincture), heat is not used therefore, heat-sensitive oils in the botanical are preserved in the tincture.
Tonic – any of our tinctures can be ordered in tonic form. Tonics are made with either a port wine or brandy. Please give up to 3 weeks for your tonic to be prepped and shipped.
