Herbal Moon Apothecary
This simple herbal remedy is perfect to help ease upset stomach, heartburn, nausea, sour stomach, bowel problems and motion sickness. We formulated this tincture as a traditional bitter, without honey or glycerin, in order to activate your GI enzymes and juices, which can improve increase the absorption of fats and reduce gas, nausea and stomach upset. Other benefits of using a bitter include improved liver functioning, improved sugar balance, decreased cravings, and less frequent heartburn. Bitters can also be a fun addition to a cocktail/mocktail, changing the flavor profiles and creating new, fun drinks to enjoy at your next gathering.
Our unique formula incorporates both organic Apple Cider Vinegar and organic grape alcohol in order to add to the bitter flavor and decrease the liver's workload of processing a pure alcohol tincture. Due to the root content in this formula, a 100% ACV blend would not extract as well and would be weak and ineffective compared to an alcohol extract.
To use: To use: Take 1 DROPPER before meals to aid in digestion. Repeat with onset of symptoms up to six doses a day. Best taken directly under the tongue but may also be taken in a very small amount of fluid (but not too much because you will lose the bitter flavor and weaken the action). If using in a cocktail, add one or two drops at a time until desired change is noted.
This blend is made with a 3:1 herb-extract ratio that macerated for at least one full lunar cycle before double decanting for ultimate filtration.
This tincture will come in a reusable glass dropper bottle with an eco friendly, recyclable label. No need to refrigerate - the alcohol acts as a preservative. Please store in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight for best preservation of the herbal extract.
Ingredients: Apple cider vinegar*, nonGMO grape alcohol*, Berberis nervosa (oregon grape root)*, Taraxacum officinale (dandelion root)*, Arctium lappa (burdock root)*, Matricaria chamomilla (chamomile)*, Zingiber officinale (ginger) (*organic ingredient)

What is an Elixir? Elixirs are strong herbal remedies that extract the beneficial properties of a plant into an alcohol and honey base. Place a dropper or two straight into your mouth or into 2-4oz of water and take up to three times a day as needed. We have elixirs that can help with allergies, headaches, sleep, stress, colds and flu, stomach upset, etc. They're a great little remedy for your first aid arsenal and are quite effective for minor illnesses!
How to Elixirs differ from Tinctures? Simply, elixirs are tinctures but blended with honey for taste instead of glycerin.
How do you take the Elixirs or Tinctures? These remedies can both be taken either "neat" under the tongue or dissolved in a small amount of your favorite beverage. The amount of alcohol in each dose is very small -- each dropper of elixir contains very little alcohol. According to our sources, the amount of each dropper of 40% alcohol (80proof) is "equivalent to 1/65th of a can of beer or 1/85th of an 8-ounce glass of wine. In addition, if you place the dropper-full into 2 ounces of water, that mixture would contain only 0.59% alcohol" (The Herbal Academy). Our Elixirs are shelf stable and will last several years without refrigeration.
Do you offer alcohol-free remedies? We sure do! If you can't find them under our Apothecary section, please search for "Alcohol-Free ACV" remedies.
Do you have vegan-friendly tinctures? Yes, all of our Alcohol-Free (ACV) blends are still made without honey and are vegan friendly!
How long does your Elderberry Syrup/Cough Syrup last? We generally recommend that all of our syrups be used within 4 weeks after opening. These remedies also need to be kept in the fridge to ensure freshness and reduce the risk of spoiling.
Do you offer wholesale? Yes we do! We love our wholesale stockists and would love to collaborate with you! Please email us at email@example.com for wholesale requests.
