A bit about our tinctures:
We start with organic pure cane alcohol and organic or wild crafted herbs and add an amount of water to the mix that is required by nature to the plant based upon its preferred growing environment. In the making of some of our blends, such as the Lyme Blend tincture, we use a 1:1 or 2:1 ratio based upon all of the herbs in the blend. Ideally we use a separate combination of all leaves of plants or all roots so they are the same in potency and density.The alcohol content will be between 30-45% depending on the herb(s) used. We age our tinctures for 6 months in glass, away from light.
All of our tinctures are made in small batches of only one gallon at a time. We strain the menstruum (liquid) from the marc (herbs) with stainless steel filters by hand and bottle the tinctures as fast as possible so little evaporation takes place. Our tinctures contain very small particles that will settle to the bottom of every bottle please remember to shake them gently before you use them every time.
If you do not want to taste the alcohol, then please allow the tinctures to decant in water or juice for 15-30 minutes before consumption. Most of the herbs that we use are very strong of flavor by the time that the finished product is at your doorstep, and we recommend diluting them in water, but some folks love a challenge. If you can handle it, the fastest way to get them into your blood stream is to hold the drops under the tongue for thirty seconds before swallowing. If you can manage the pure tincture that way, you’re already much stronger than any of us here at the “Branch”.
Depending where you are in your Lyme protocol, adjust the amount of drops that you start with. We recommending starting with 1-2 drops at first and see how that affects you. Build up to 30 drops, 3 times a day. That may take some people a month to accomplish and others may not get to that level for many months. Lyme treatments are not short term. Be committed to your health and stay on course.
