about the herb*

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The essential oil of this bridal flower is used in perfumes but is so difficult to extract that most products use a chemical substitute. Distilled flower water is an astringent and whitening skin wash called aqua aurea. It also reduces fluid retention heart problems and in China is given as a tonic. The leaves yield a green dye. Was believed to treat gout, to "comfort the heart," and to restore speech and memory (from the head-clearing effect of inhaling the snuff of he roots and flowers). The flowering tops, leaves, and roots are used to regulate and stimulate heartbeat largely by virtue of the convallarin content, which is similar in effect to Foxglove's digitalin, although safer, because convallarin does not accumulate in the body and therefore is less likely to result in an overdose. Lily of the Valley is a potentially poisonous plant and should be given by trained personnel only.

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.
