By definition, a tonic is a medicinal substance taken to give a feeling of vigor or well-being. They’re prepared with one or multiple potent herbs and complete three tasks. Restore, tone & invigorate multiple body systems. For centuries tonics have been used because of the extraordinary benefits they provide to not only the body but the mind and spirit. Tonics are meant to be taken over long periods of time in order for our bodies to reap the long term benefits. They contain key minerals and vitamins that promote overall health well-being to the entire body.Over time, tonics train the body and create positive effects that continue even when the tonic is no longer in use. Tonic herbs don’t have side effects and are easily digestible. Often described as gentle and friendly.
Tinctures are fast-acting, high quality herbal extracts. These extracts are used to treat conditions directly to the blood stream. Often times, benefits can be felt within minutes. Tinctures are made by extracting medicinal properties from herbs with the use of alcohol or vegetable glycerin. Tinctures take anywhere from 7-10 weeks to mature and have a shelf life of up to 3 years when stored properly. They’re as simple to use as dropping a few drops under the tongue and do not need to be refrigerated. My tinctures are made in small batches with fresh, organic and handpicked herbs from my land. They are hand pressed, hand bottled and poured to order.
