Tinctures

What exactly are tinctures??
Tinctures are highly concentrated liquid extracts of herbs. The liquid base consists of a mixture of pure grain alcohol, distilled water and vegetable glycerin. The medicinal herbs are placed in a jar with the liquid. The herbal properties are extracted into the liquid base. In 2 weeks, the herbs are strained out. The remaining liquid now has the herbal properties in it. Tinctures will retain their medicinal properties far longer than most preparations; such as teas, capsules, powders.

Why pure grain alcohol? distilled water? vegetable glycerin?
Alcohol is a potent extractor for alkaloids and other plant constituents. Alcohol has preserving qualities; so it keeps the potency of the herbs intact. Distilled water is added to extract out different chemicals of the herbs that the alcohol doesn’t easily dissolve. Vegetable glycerin is sweet and nutritious. Its potency for extracting is another reason it’s added to tinctures. Glycerin is a natural preservative too.

Why use Coyote Moon tinctures??
Tinctures are quick acting, fresher than capsules and their potency is retained over 5 years. To use, just put the drops (dosage) in a 1/2 cup of warm water and drink!! You can also place them into caffeine free herbal tea or fruit juice. Use the eyedropper to drop the tincture into your choice of beverage and drink it down!! Be sure to take enough of the herbal tincture to get the desired effect. A general dosage is 25 drops or 1 dropperful.

Remember, if you are not sure of the right dosage, give me a call or e-mail me!!

Tinctures in 1 ounce bottles are easy to carry on trips and more convenient than capsules.

Lastly, I make my tinctures with the lunar cycle. The moon ”pulls” the herbs into the alcohol extract. This process was taught to me by Dr. Christopher’s School of Natural Healing. I make herbal medicine only 13 times per year with the lunar cycle. I use the idea of ”germinating a tincture” with the moon as a conduit to help the process of extraction and also in the potency aspect. My customers tell me there’s something different to my tinctures--that they are potent and more effective. I have to agree. Since I make the tinctures with freshly dried herbs and in small batches, the freshness of my tinctures are worth the taste!!
