Echinacea Tincture | 1:1 High Strength 45%
A high strength, 1:1 tincture of organic, fresh Echinacea purpurea whole herb.
Echinacea is the go-to herb for immune system support. Its antimicrobial and decongestant actions make it particularly beneficial for upper respiratory infections. It is ideal for overworked, overstimulated immune systems, helping to return them to normal, healthy function. Rather than just being used as a preventative for colds and flu, echinacea can help with convalescence and post-illness fatigue. It has also been shown to reduce pain and inflammation, as well as improve skin conditions.
The tinctures are packaged in blue glass bottles with a pipette lid, so drops are easily dispensed.

A tincture is a concentrated herbal extract made using ethanol and distilled water. When glycerine is used in place of the ethanol, it is called a glycerite. The ethanol acts as a solvent, drawing out the active compounds from the herb into the liquid.
The ratio refers to the concentration of herbs to solvent, for example 1:3 would be 1 part herbs (grams) to 3 parts liquid (millilitres). 1:1 is the strongest extract, in which 1ml of liquid is the extracted equivalent of 1000mg of herb.
The percentage of a tincture refers to the alcohol used. 45% means that the ethanol was diluted to 45% with distilled water.
The tincture should also clarify whether dried or fresh herbs were used.
Usually between few drops and a few dropperfuls of tincture are taken daily by mouth, either straight or diluted in water.
Keep cool, dry, sealed & out of direct sunlight.
