Tinctures II Title

What are Tinctures?


A tincture is a liquid extract made by soaking herbs in alcohol to extract the active ingredients from the

herbs. Alcohol is considered an excellent solvent because it is food grade and can extract herbal

constituents, such as resins and alkaloids, that are poorly soluble in water. After a number of weeks, the

herbs are then strained and removed, leaving behind the liquid. A tincture can be made of a single herb

or a combination of herbs.

Herbal tinctures are used because of their fast absorption and because of their long-shelf life. If the

alcohol content of a tincture is a concern, glycerin extracts, capsules, or tablets may be used instead.

 Herbal tinctures are sold in health-food stores, some drug and grocery stores, and online.

Some tinctures, such as arnica and compound tincture of benzoin, should only be used externally.

Our Tinctures/Herbal Extracts are all organic. If you can't find the tincture your looking for, please

the website yet.
