Elder Heath | Tincture |
Tinctures have been used for centuries as a natural and effective way of receiving the benefits of earth’s herbs, berries, roots, and barks. A good tincture will brew for between 4-7 weeks in organic alcohol, which is a natural preservative and the best method for pulling all of the therapeutic properties out of the herbs and into liquid form. Tinctures are potent yet convenient and easy to use at home or on the go.
Our tinctures are always made in intimate batches and receive special care and attention each and every day. They are kept in a dark, cool & magic-laden loft and only come out on the full moon, when they are included in ritual moon blessings. They are also often sung to by various singing bowls. Tinctures have a special place in our hearts and we therefore utilize ultimate care and consideration for ours. Because they will be used for healing and energizing your sacred temple, each batch is tested & tasted to assure quality & potency. Your tincture will keep for a few years if kept out of direct sunlight!
Elder Health ♥
We all know that Elderberry is one of nature’s magical super fruits. A powerful source of Vitamins A, C & B, Elderberry is also rich in flavonoids (even more so than cranberry or goji berry). Elderberry is also one of the top antiviral herbs on our planet – They contain chemical compounds called “anthocyanidins” which are known to have immunostimulant effects. Taking our traditional elderberry tincture recipe, we’ve added in even more power-packed herbs all in line with immune support.
Sweet Cinnamon: a circulatory stimulant, expectorant, and analgestic.
Clove: Antifungal, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, analgestic & antioxidant.
Anise: expectorant, carminative, antispasmodic, antiseptic. Anise is further a source of the chemical compound shikimic acid, which is a primary ingredient in Tamiflu.
While we can’t tell you that our Elder Health tincture will cure you of your cough or flu, we can tell you that, taken daily, this tincture will act as a barrier between you and sickness/infection. A must-have tonic for sinus/upper respiratory/ cough/flu/fever.
Steeped in top-shelf vodka & laced with raw, organic, wildflower honey to add a little sweetness to this extra spicy tonic.
Tinctures can be taken a few ways:
The most common way is to take drops directly under the tongue. This is the fastest & most effective method of absorption. Some prefer to put a dropper-full in a glass of water or hot tea/coffee to minimize the taste & burn of the alcohol. Both methods are completely safe & completely up to you!
