Why We Combined These Herbs
Gingko Biloba - This herb is known to stimulate blood flow, improve circulation and has been shown to have a positive effect on recovery of hair follicles.. It can help with increasing the blood flow follicles need to encourage new growth at the root level. It can be used topically, but is more commonly used in the form of a tea since the benefits are attainable through digestion, as with most herbs. It can also be taken as a supplement and is especially useful for people suffering from deficiencies that affect the follicle. According to research published in International Journal of PharmTech Research, this herb leads to "hair regrowth, through combined effects on proliferation and apoptosis of the cells in the hair follicle thus suggesting potential as a hair tonic."
Horsetail (Shavegrass) - One of the lesser known herbs, this is actually one of the most widely used in hair products. It is known to improve the strength of hair, as well as bones, thanks to the ingredient silica. It also helps to make hair less brittle to retain hair which is great for hair loss. It can be taken as a supplement or used in a product that already has it as an ingredient. It is important to drink plenty of water with this herb since it is a diuretic. University of Maryland Medical Center reports, "Be sure to drink enough fluids when taking horsetail preparations by mouth."
Burdock Root - Packed with essential fatty acids and phytosterol compounds, burdock can help with an irritated scalp while also reversing hair loss. It can help generate new growth thanks to these two elements, and is often found in many hair care products aimed at restoring hair. In fact, the fatty acids in this plant can even be used to treat psoriasis. University of Maryland Medical Center reports that in a study of 40 people with psoriasis, those who took fish oil rich in the same fatty acids found in burdock with their prescription medications had better results than those taking just their medicine.
Stinging Nettle - This herb helps block the over production of DHT which leads to hair loss. While it may not create new growth, it does stop hair loss while helping to restore balance to the hormones that create hair growth. It also has strong antibacterial properties. A study, published in Phytomedicine and Therapeutics Journal to determine this aspect of stinging nettle, found that this result, "may be attributed to the presence of agglutinin, a lectin, and other active compounds in the plant."
Saw Palmetto - Working to stop the imbalance of hormones that stand in the way of growth, this herb is similar to stinging nettle. In fact, for the best results, you can combine the two together as a topical to get better results at both stopping air loss, and improving growth. It also works to control overproduction of DHT. According to this study, "Saw Palmetto extract inhibits the binding of DHT to receptors, thus blocking DHT's action and promoting the breakdown of the potent compound."
Fenugreek - Fenugreek works for all hair types. It provides natural proteins, vitamin C and other nutrients for the nourishment and growth of hair. This herb is also a great alternative to store bought conditioner, thanks to its high mucilage content – which provides slip like conditioner and makes detangling very easy. Regular use of fenugreek in a hair rinse or deep conditioner mask will soften your hair, increase manageability, and restore lustre and bounce.
We use only the highest quality herbs that are certified organic, holistically wild crafted, and never irradiated or sprayed with pesticides. Our cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum of the plant's constituents in the final product. Our herbs are tinctured in organic alcohol and fresh mountain water (free from harsh chemicals and fluoride treatments). This combination acts as a medicinal strength and holistically balanced carrier, bringing the needed remedy straight to the blood stream to work fast and effectively. Tinctures are absorbed in the mouth and stomach and bypass the slower intestinal system which may or may not absorb the needed constituents of capsules. We hand make these wonderful herbal preparations in small batches. Tinctures are poured off into dark glass bottles creating a great product with an optimally long shelf life.
