Allergies got ya down? Spring and fall pollen can knock you out. Don't let it put you out of commission! I formulated this tinctures with herbs known traditionally for tonifying the liver to stop the inflammatory response, clear mucus, stop the histamine response, and soothe aggravated mucus membranes.
I start by taking a half dropperful of tincture. I wait about half an hour and watch to see if there are any results. I increase the amount by one dropperful until I get to a point where I can feel symptoms decrease. Then, I'll take that amount as needed, cutting the amount as symptoms seem to decline. Make sure to drink lots of water and check out my blog article The Quintessential Allergy Blog for more info on allergy season support.
Ingredients: alcohol, water, burdock, red clover, stinging nettle, mullein, Spanish needles, goldenrod, ground ivy, mulberry2 ounces

With wildcrafted berries, this elixir packs a Vitamin C punch!
Elderberries, sumac berries, and rose hips are all jam-packed with Vitamin C to give your immune system a super boost. Add local honey, spring water, and a little tonifying apple cider vinegar and you’re ready to face anything. Plus, did you know that elderberries can bind with the flu virus and keep it from entering your cells???
INGREDIENTS: Water, Raw Appalachian Honey, Raw Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, Wildcrafted Elderberries, Sumac and Rose Hips.

Trust me, you want this feel-good tonic.
I like to call this my “Happy Juice”. The powder puff pink blossoms, twigs, and leaves of the mimosa tree, called the, “Tree of Happiness,” in Chinese medicine, are combined with hawthorn berries, St. John’s wort, and lemon balm for this delightful tincture.
Hawthorn berries have been known to be a heart tonic for the physical and emotional heart. St. John’s wort and lemon balm have appeared in uplifting, anti-depressive formulas throughout the ages. I take a half dropperful of this mix whenever I feel the need. Not recommended for people who are taking pharmaceutical medication (including birth control), or those with bipolar/mania symptoms.
INGREDIENTS: Alcohol, Water, Mimosa, St. John's Wort, Hawthorn, Lemon Balm.

Non-Alcoholic bitters with foraged flair.
We could all use a little liver toning!
You know those bitters they serve in bars? Back in the day, they’d serve bitter herbs before meals to stimulate digestion. Bitter herbs tonify our livers and gallbladders, too. There’s a lot of new research coming out now that bitters do all kinds of other great things, like work as anti-inflammatories, and are anti-depressive. Time to tonify yourself!

It's famously good!
This lip balm is made from the recipe for our famous "Every Purpose" salve. It's super moisturizing for every day and soothing for chapped lips, with more beeswax than the salve to protect you from all of the elements
