At Olive tree apothecary, our tinctures are hand made with fresh, ethically wild-harvested (never near roadways, railroad tracks or farming communities), or home-grown herbs, picked at peak potency and infused in 80 proof vodka. Occasionally we will use material for our tinctures that cannot be grown locally. We buy these from trusted suppliers and they are clearly labelled on our products. We use fresh plants rather than dried ones, to ensure maximum potency and effectiveness.

While there is a recommended dosage amount on each bottle, assessing your own dosage when using tinctures is important. As an individual, you have a unique body and health profile that may require personalized dosing. By being your own doctor in this context, you can tailor the dosage to suit your specific needs and tolerance levels. 

Tinctures are best taken under the tongue where they directly enter the blood stream. They are very strong and may be taken diluted in water, juice or tea. Avoid liquids for 10-15 minutes afterwards.
