Teas, Tinctures, Etc.

Lynda applies her knowledge of plants and chemistry to the organic and inorganic extraction of plants for medical purposes. With more than 15 years of Quality Control testing and chemical extraction experience, you can be assured of high quality products.

Our liquid extracts, referred to as "tinctures," are convenient to use and are more potent than teas or capsules. Grain alcohol is used as the solvent to extract the medicinal value from the herbs and as a preservative. Alcohol tinctures are rapidly assimilated by the body, and their effects are quickly noticed.

We prepare our tinctures by masceration or percola-tion according to U.S.P. methods. They can be taken as is or in hot water or tea which will dissipate the alcohol. Liquid extracts require the use of ethyl alcohol for proper solubility and stability of the product. Alcohol releases the widest variety of compounds in an unchanged form. Alcohol is the universal solvent for substances used in tinctures, and adequate substitutes do not exist.

In addition to a variety of tinctures, we offer teas, capsules, first aids and cosmetics (such as salves, astringents, hand creams, face scrubs, and tooth powder).
