about the herb*


According to Ayurvedic traditions, Chairata, also known as "Chiretta," is a bitter tonic to the liver, useful in the treatment of problems related to the heart, eyes, and skin. It is similar in usefullness to the well known bitter root of Gentian. Hence Swertia is used as a stomachic, a drying astringent, as well as a febrifuge and antidiahrretic. It is also used to assist in the management of sciatica, dropsy, melancholia, cough, and scanty urine.

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.
