about the herb*


According to Ayurvedic tradition, Vamsha Rochana, also known as "Bamboo Manna", is an astringent, tonic, febrifuge, with properties also defined as cooling, stimulating, antispasmodic, haemostatic, rejuvenative, expectorant, sedative, aphrodisiac, and demulcent. It is reputedly a special tonic to the heart and liver, and a moistening expectorant which can be used to rejuvenate the lungs. It nurtures the heart, soothes the nervous system, improves the blood, and is anti-cold and anti-cough. Additionally, it is traditionally used to treat leprosy, fevers, and hemoptysis, while the leaves are emmenagogue and antihelmintic.

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.
