A tincture is made by combining plants, alcohol, and water at specific ratios.  These then sit together for a minimum of two weeks, the liquid pulls the medicinal constituents from the plant into the solvent (menstruum), and is later strained.   The plant is then composted and the liquid becomes what we know as an herbal tincture.  Some of the benefits of taking tinctures are:   they are easy to take (often just a squirt in water and or by mouth), easy to travel with (they can be taken on airplanes, or stored in your desk drawer, or in your purse to take as needed), it's a great way to incorporate herbal medicine into your every day, as each formula contains a complex range of phytochemicals that may be beneficial to your body and specific systems.*
