Why I Wanted to Make Tinctures

Why I Wanted to Make Tinctures

A couple of months ago, in the grips of a long lock-down, I decided there was a need for an easy way to maintain a strong immune system  -- and offer that to my family & community.

I know that the blend for our Life Force Tea is tasty & effective, but only for those people willing to brew up some tea. So, I got out my jars, herbs and vodka to start the process of tincturing.

The underlying reason for tinctures is that they are able to distill and concentrate the amazing essence and healing qualities of the herbs, roots and berries ~ without waste. The alcohol draws out the constituents of the herbs and holds them in the alcohol. This cold method of tincturing ensures that the maximum concentration of nutrients and botanical ingredients are extracted from the herb. The alcohol and honey (which brings out the wonderful cinnamon, cardamom, and berry flavors) are totally sterile environments and can be preserved for years.

I personally love the taste of these tinctures and experience certainty of their healing potential. When I take the tincture, either in a warm beverage or straight from the dropper, it is as though I am making a conscious offering to my body's health.

If nothing else, this lock-down has shown us the power of self-reliance. We are the keepers of our body temple.

We are aware when something is out of balance and we do our best to re-balance. Mostly through rest, relaxing, eating strong foods and drinking water and warm beverages.

This Immune Support Tincture can help to maintain a balanced immunity when you are under stress or feel the hint of cold or flu symptoms. It can also help if you have already come down with a cold, to heal it and speed up the process of recovery!

Love & wisdom nectar,
