WHAT IS A TINCTURE?
A tincture is made when dry plant material is submerged in alcohol and kept in a dark place for a few weeks to several months. The alcohol draws the nutrients of the plant out, the plant material is discarded and/or used as compost for the garden, and the remaining content is used as a remedy because it contains that essence of the plant that was tinctured.
Place only 2-3 drops from dropper into a teaspoon of honey, tea, or juice and ingest 1-2 times daily. When taking tincture for the first time, it should be taken 1 dose - 1 time daily and then work up to 2 times daily if you experience no side-effects. It is important to drink a minimum of 8 – 8 oz glasses of water, because this herb has cleansing effects on the body and water will aid in the cleansing.
JOURNAL: Good health is a journey and for some does not happen overnight, depending on prior health status. Consider journaling your experience and what you notice from taking the tincture, before and after. I would love to hear about our daily experience. Email: Dr.Hill@henandmoon.com
*PLEASE DO NOT THINK THAT MORE IS BETTER. THIS TINCTURE IS VERY CONCENTRATED AND ONLY A FEW DROPS ARE NEEDED FOR EACH DOSE. The actual nut is generally chewed threw out the day, in part, and has a slower release of the nutrients in the body. The tincture goes to the system much quicker, so PLEASE DO NOT TAKE MORE THAN WHAT IS RECOMMENDED.
