TINCTURES (also called Extracts or Nutrition Supplements) are botanicals (herbs and other plant materials) concentrated in alcohol (or vegetable glycerin) to extract their phytochemicals. Yard Woman's TINCTURES are made by slowly extracting the botanicals in 40% grade alcohol for at least 180 days. This provides for a better tasting extract without sacrificing quality or potency.
The advantage to using TINCTURES over other forms of ingestion is that you get the full range of constituents from the botanical(s) when you TINCTURE them. For example, the herb Osha contains important ingredients that do not dissolve in water so if you were to make a tea out of Osha rather than a TINCTURE you would not get the benefit of the full range of nutrients that Osha contains. Also in an Extraction, heat is not used and therefore, heat sensitive oils in the botanical are preserved in the TINCTURE.
You can take botanicals in TINCTURE form easily anywhere at any time. In this day and age, it is sometimes difficult to travel with liquid remedies. At Yard Woman, we carry a number of liquid herbs in gel cap form (made by NOW FOODS) for your convenience in traveling.
TINCTURES should be stored in a cool dark place. Stored properly they can last up to 7-8 years.
Our TINCTURES are considered nutrition specific products. They are not sold as drugs or remedies and we make no medical claims and assume no responsibility for any misuse or abuse of our products.
Use caution when combining botanicals with pharmaceuticals.
Understand what the botanicals will do for you before you take the TINCTURE.
