The Herbal Toad offers a comprehensive list of all natural, organic, hand-harvested and hand-crafted herbal extracts.
Single Herb Tinctures: A single herb extracted using organic grape alcohol and clean mountain water. Herbs are infused for a minimum of a 6 week period—30% longer maceration time than other artisanal companies, and 300% more than many larger companies.
Tincture Blends: The herbs merge their properties in the process of maceration and enhance one another’s actions. There is a catalytic effect from this merging and blending of energies. The whole becomes greater than the parts.
Tincture drops can be put directly under the tongue, diluted in water, or put in hot water to drink as tea—the alcohol evaporates and the medicine stays in the water. A 2 oz bottle usually lasts about 1 month, depending on your dose and how often you take it. Tinctures have a 6 year shelf life when kept free from contaminants and when stored out of extreme heat and direct sunlight.
