What is an Elixir?
This product is an herbal elixir, which is a combination of a tincture and a medicinal honey or syrup. A tincture is an extract made by soaking medicinal herbs in alcohol over a period of time (usually at least 2 months). A medicinal honey is made by heating honey mixed with an herb to extract medicinal properties into the honey.
Because the final alcohol content of this elixir is 56%, it is shelf stable and can be treated like a tincture in terms of storage and shelf life. See below.
Benefits of tinctures (and this elixir) include:
Convenience—Just squeeze a couple of droppers into a small bit of water, instead of making a cup of tea. It’s easy to take your medicine on the go.
Shelf life—The alcohol preserves the plant’s medicine for years to come.
Freshness—Herbs can be extracted fresh, preserving their fresh essence.
