Single Herb Extracts

Single Herb Extracts

We offer over 80 single-plant extracts, made in a base of pure grain alcohol and spring water. Our quality is exceptional because close to 70% of the herbs we use in our extracts are organically grown in our gardens or hand-gathered in nearby fields and islands by our experienced herbalist and gardeners. Soon after harvesting, the herbs are prepared in our lab, using recipes which take into account each individual herb's unique qualities. Extracts preserve and concentrate an herb's potency for 5-6 years and never need refrigeration.

We recommend shaking your bottle before using as there may be small amounts of herbal sediment in a bottle.  One and two-oz. bottles come with droppers and four and eight-oz bottles come capped. Simply add drops into your tea or water, or take directly under your tongue.
