LIFE IS A JOURNEY, ARE YOU READY?

HOW TO MAKE A TINCTURE

You can make a tincture of anything and everything. Herbal tinctures are great. A lot of minerals are not completely soluble in water and hence making an alcohol tincture helps to extract the goodness in the herbs. Here is an easy enough video on how to make a tincture.




Tinctures are more readily absorbed by the body and have a high degree of bio-availability. As well, they have a long shelf life.

Sometimes people ask us why tinctures are alcohol-based. There are very good reasons. Alcohol is critically important in the extraction of an herb's medicinal ingredients. It also helps to stabilize and preserve them. Alcohol is the ideal carrier substance, conveying the therapeutic goodness of the herb to the body. In itself, too, science has proven that alcohol enhances the immune system and its defences.

As for the amount of alcohol taken in an average dose of tincture, you'll be surprised to learn that it's about the same as what you'd find in an overly ripe banana!

Tinctures remain the most practical way to take advantage of the amazing herbs.
