about the herb*


ToAppetier, cholagogue, diaphoretic, digestive, emetic, febrifuge, tonic. European centaury is one of the traditional panaceas, having been recommended and used for practically everything except diarrhea. It stimulates the activity of the salivary, stomach, and intestinal glands, thereby relieving constipation and gas and promoting proper digestion. This activity probably accounts for many of its other beneficial effects. The tea is commonly taken for heartburn, colic, suppressed menstruation, and anemia. Taken over a long period, it tends to help in taking off weight.

Herbie's Herbs' tinctures

Herbie’s Herbs tinctures are alcohol-based preparations macerated in 50% distilled cane sugar alcohol at a 1:2 ratio. Read more here

Compared to other methods, alcohol helps extract nearly all active constituents from a herb yielding stronger tinctures that require a lower dose to attain beneficial effects.

Alcohol eliminates the growth of bacteria and mold while preserving the valuable constituents resulting in a much longer shelf life.
