Herbal Tinctures

Tinctures are a concentrated extraction of an herb made in water and alcohol. These herbal extracts offer stronger medicinal dosages of herbs than alternative forms of ingestion such as capsules or teas.

Tinctures are assimilated more easily than capsules and tablets (which require digestion) because alcohol is readily absorbed through the digestive lining.

Our line of high quality tinctures is prepared by Gaia Garden Apothecary according to the menstrum needs of each individual herb. (Most of the tinctures are denoted as 1:3; meaning that 333 grams of dried herb is used in each litre of starting menstrum.) All tinctures are made using raw materials of a consistently superior standard.

Listed below are the Gaia Garden single herb tinctures and Gaia Garden tincture formulations that we carry. If you are looking for a particular product and do not see it on this list, please feel free to call us at the number below as we may have additional tinctures in the store.
