Tinctures & Liniments



Tinctures

What’s the difference between a tincture and a liniment? Tinctures are typically extracted in 100 proof grain alcohol unless specified otherwise.  Children’s tinctures are usually extracted using vegetable glycerin. Liniments are extracted in rubbing alcohol and are used topically, not internally.

Herbal Tinctures available this year are as follows

Chickweed Tincture
chickweed Being nutrient dense, chickweed is a welcome addition to my garden. Rich with Vitamin A and C, the vitamins necessary for healthy skin, it’s also packed with minerals that help us build healthy skin tissue. As a lymphatic, it moves stuck lymph and is known to help unlock and release toxic fat buildup such as belly fat caused by the stress hormone cortisol. It is dissolving and resolving in the case of cellulite. As a hunger suppressor paired with its ability to move things out, chickweed has long been used in folk medicine as a treatment in weight loss or obesity.

Spilanthes Tincture AKA Toothache plant
tincture2 AKA buzz balls. This tincture is made from the spilanthes flower grown right here in my greenhouse. I use this plant for any type of gum infection or toothache in general. It very effectively numbs the mouth, is powerfully antiseptic and will make you salivate! I typically have people swish 2 dropperfuls through the mouth for as long as they can and then spit.
