Every herb is unique and dosages vary accordingly, but there are some general guidelines and conversions that can be very helpful.
Extract dosages can be measured in drops, dropperfuls, milliliters (mL), teaspoons (Tsp), and "pumps" or "sprays".
- A dropperful contains about 30 drops, or 1 mL.
- 4 dropperfuls make up 3 mL, a common dosage of WishGarden tinctures.
- 7 pumps from our pump tops is equivalent to 3 mL.
- One teaspoon (Tsp) is roughly equivalent to 5 mL.
The most commonly used dose for tinctures is 30-60 drops or 1-2 dropperfuls. In general, the more acute a condition, the more frequent the doses. Safe dosage ranges are fairly broad with most, but not all, herbs.
We highly recommend that you use a good herbal reference and become familiar with the individual characteristics of the herbs you are using.
At WishGarden, we provide a recommended usage on each of our tincture bottles.
