We’re proud of our extensive range of Herbal Tinctures which are manufactured here in the UK using only the finest quality ingredients and extraction methods.
Herbal Tinctures are liquid extracts that are usually made from either fresh or dried herbs. The tinctures are taken orally but some can also be applied topically to the skin such as Thuja or Arnica.
Our range of tinctures are currently extracted in a solution of alcohol as this is typically the best method for extracting more of the herbs active ingredients.
Tinctures can also be extracted in vegetable glycerine making them ideal for children or those that cannot consume alcohol.
Herbal Tinctures are easy and convenient to use and you only need a few drops per dose so a small bottle goes a long way.
The best way to take a tincture is to simply put a few drops drectly under your tongue as this enables the active ingredients in the herbs to be absorbed into the bloodstream much quicker.
Some tinctures can have an over-powering flavour so an alternative method of consuming them is to mix the tincture with some fruit juice or similar or simply mix them with a small amount of water and honey.
For those worried about the alcohol content, please note that 1 dose contains approximately the same alcohol content as a piece of very ripe fruit so this makes it a safe choice for pregnant women and children.
You can also steep the tincture in hot water for a few minutes as this will dissolve the alcohol content. We have been supplying herbal tinctures and herbal remedies for over 17 years so if you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. Our knowledgable staff are here to help.
