Sacred Plant Organics Tincture
Tinctures are herbal infusions in alochol (usually) and can be used for medicinal, emotional, energetic, or spiritual purposes. We're so proud to stock this line in the shop because they're mindfully handcrafted with organic or wild-crafted ingredients, and are just as potent for unblocking your energy and encouraging your spiritual journey as they are for your wellness routine.
Read on below for more on the company, the products, and the tinctures themselves:
Tinctures are infusions of plant matter into organic alcohol. They’re mostly used in medicine making because they're a very effective way to extract medicinal qualities out of the plant and to preserve it for extended periods of time. In theory, tinctures can last for years and years without losing their potency.
Elixirs are infusions of plant matter into alcohol, with the addition of raw honey. Honey can lend a welcomed sweetness to some tinctures, as well as being a wonderful source of antioxidants & phytonutrients. These elixirs typically also feature a blend of herbs, versus the single herb tinctures we offer.
Tinctures & Elixirs are in 1oz dropper bottles unless otherwise noted.
* The vast majority of the plants used in Sacred Plant Organics products are respectfully & sustainably wild-crafted, or grown at the permaculture forest garden, on their property in the Appalachian mountains of Southwestern Virginia. Every extract, oil infusion, distillate, and decoction used in their products is made by hand, in their apothecary, using fresh, whole, organic plants, to ensure efficacy, quality and sustainability.
