An herbal extract (also known as a tincture) is a preparation in which the active principles of a herb are extracted into alcohol. This concentrates and preserves the medicinal qualities of the herb. We grow many of the freshly gathered plants we use in preparing our extracts or wildcraft from pristine areas throughout New England and the Adirondack region of New York. Each plant is joyfully harvested in season with respect and gratitude for its gift of life and healing.
Occasionally, we use plants that are unavailable to us in the northeast region. These herbs are carefully gathered by knowledgeable herbalists and shipped to us fresh or dried, depending on the herb.
