Do not consume straight from the container. Whole Body Apothecary Herbal Tinctures are highly concentrated and still contain approx 30% alcohol. Please dilute 1.5mL (60 drops or 1.5 droppers full) with at least 4oz of water. Recommended to use twice daily with or without food.
The first extraction is 42 days of high quality, certified organic cane alcohol extraction (ethanol). After the herbs are strained, they are extracted a second time for 45 minutes at a low temperature (140deg F) with reverse osmosis water. The two extractions are combines and held at 140deg F for 10 minutes to flash a percentage of ethanol to maintain potency. The purpose of a double extraction is pulling both ethanol and water soluble nutrients from each herbal blend into solution. A double extraction does not dilute the strength of a tincture if done properly. A double extraction will only add to the complexity and overall quality of the tincture.
