      This may be your first liquid herbal tincture experience, so here are some helpful tips to get you started.

      Directions for Use

      Please follow the instructions under Suggested Use on the bottle for use strategies that go with that formula.

      We highly recommend adding our herbal extracts into a beverage of your choice to cut the taste. We do not add sweeteners to our tinctures so you should anticipate an earthy taste. Add the recommended amount of your tincture to water, tea, juice, or kombucha; this will not dilute the effect of the tincture. It's not recommended to add our tinctures directly beneath your tongue as it could sting this very sensitive place.

      Can you take multiple formulas at the same time? Yes you may, many customers enjoy mixing combinations; however, those with a complicated medical history or on prescription drugs should consult their natural therapies practitioner.

      Use Strategies

      Game Changers!
      "Half of it is the awesome formulas...the other half is how you use them!"

      How to Use Our Liquid Extracts for Best Results:

      Initially take the suggested amount in a small amount of water, juice or tea to taste. With familiarity, can be taken directly for convenience.

      #1 Fastest Effect: VOLUME

      Herbs can work within 5 minutes to impact symptoms! To achieve in-the-moment results, take one serving (see label for serving size). Serving may need to be repeated 1-3x for full relief. See individual product label for max daily servings.

      For example: Kick-Ass Allergy, Sleepy Nights, Cramp Release, Attention Ally, AfterEase

      #2 Move Thru-It: FREQUENCY

      Take one serving (see label for serving size) every 1-3 hours for a day or two then taper off to every 3-4 hours a day as symptoms improve, up to 5 consecutive days or as practitioner recommended. See individual product label for max daily servings.

       

      For example: Kick-Ass Immune, Get Over It, Happy Ducts, Flow Stopper, Congestion Rescue

      #3 Tonic: CONSISTENCY

      Take one serving (see label for serving size) 2-4x a day as needed for ongoing support. Length of use depends on individual needs and formula choice. Consult with a practitioner before using a tonic beyond recommended use guidelines.

      For example: Daily Immune, ReBalance, Cycle Harmony, Hot Flash Tamer, Deep Stress

       

      Important Note: Not all three strategies are appropriate for all formulas. Please follow the instructions under Suggested Use on the bottle or product’s web page for use strategies that go with that formula.

      Serving Size

      Many of our tinctures recommend 3mL. What does that equate to for dropper top bottles, pump tops and jigger cups?

      • Dropper top: 4 droppersful
      • Pump top: 8 pumps
      • Jigger cup: fill to the first line from the bottom

      Here's a quick video on how to measure the proper serving

      Storage

      Opened tincture bottles do not need to be refrigerated. Simply close the bottle securely and store in a medicine cabinet, kitchen cabinet or drawer.

      Expiration Date & Shelf Life

      Our tinctures are good for 3 years after they've been bottled. The expiration date can be found printed on the bottle. Once the bottle has been opened, the tincture is good until the expiration date.

      Recycle Your Bottles

      After finishing your bottle, rinse it out and recycle the glass. The dropper top and pump tops are currently not recyclable unfortunately so those can be thrown away.
