Bear Wallow Herbs offer a comprehensive list of all natural, hand-harvested and hand-crafted herbal extracts.
Single Herb Tinctures: A single herb extracted using organic grape alcohol and clean mountain water. Herbs are infused for a 28 day period—a full moon cycle.
Tincture Blends: The herbs merge their properties in the process of maceration and enhance one another’s actions. There is a catalytic effect from this merging and blending of energies. The whole becomes greater than the parts.
Tincture drops can be put directly under tongue, diluted in water, or put in hot water to drink as tea—the alcohol evaporates and the medicine stays in the water. A 1oz bottle usually lasts about 1 month, depending on your dose and how often you take it. Tinctures have a 5 year shelf life when stored out of extreme heat and direct sunlight. The 1oz bottles come with a dropper top and the 4oz refill bottles have a screw cap with no dropper.
Glycerites: Glycerites are herbal medicines made by extracting herbs in vegetable glycerine and clean mountain water. Herbal Glycerites are great for kids, seniors, alcohol-sensitive adults, or anyone. Glycerites are taken internally—the sweet taste making it a pleasure to put right in your mouth. Even though it tastes sweet, glycerites have a zero glycemic index, meaning it does not raise your blood sugar. Glycerites are half as strong as tinctures, so the recommended dose is twice that of tinctures. Glycerites should be used within a year since glycerine is not a good preservative.
