Herbal Tinctures

Herbal Tinctures

Welcome. In this section we list our range of herbal tinctures. If you want to get the healing power of herbs into your body quickly and easily, consider tinctures. A tincture is a liquid preparation made by steeping the herb for several weeks in a blend of alcohol and water. The alcohol is able to extract chemicals from the plant material that water alone cannot; it also acts as a preservative, giving a long shelf life. Why not start your own little pharmacy in a kitchen cupboard? More about Tincture Strength....

On the tincture labels you will see the percentage of alcohol used. For example, 45% volume means 45% alcohol, 55% water. The strength of the tincture is also stated. For example, 1:3 means 1 part herb for every 3 parts liquid.

Because tinctures are concentrated, you only need a small amount. For medicinal purposes, the rule of thumb is 5ml 3 times a day. Use the measuring cups that we provide – don’t rely on teaspoons as they vary in capacity. Being in liquid form, the chemical constituents of the herb enter your bloodstream rapidly.

Tinctures can be taken in a little water or juice. For children or those who wish to avoid alcohol, pour just-boiled water onto the tincture and leave for 10 minutes. This evaporates off most of the alcohol. If in doubt about using tinctures, consult a registered medical herbalist.

Our pharmacopoeial grade tinctures, as with all our botanicals, come with a certificate of analysis, detailing tests for taste, odour, constituents, pesticide residues etc.

High quality products- excellent service
Fast, efficient delivery. Products are always of a very high standard. Thoroughly recommend. Sea buckthorn is such a excellent product for many reasons but very good for the skin.

Good product
Good product, arrived quickly. I suspect one of these days that turkey tail mushrooms will be more widely recognised for their health benefits - until then I hope Indigo Herbs will keep stocking the powder - and also get the capsules back in stock soon!
