How To Use Tinctures
The benefit of tinctures is that the medicinal value is easily assimilated in the body, they are convenient to use, the average shelf life is 5 years, and they offer a more complete range of medicinal properties than dried herbs or capsules.
The best way to use liquid herbal tinctures is to put the suggested amount (20-30 drops) in a glass of water, tea, or juice and drink the entire contents. Tinctures can also be administered directly into the mouth without the assistance of water however some tinctures are unpalatable which is why most people prefer to dilute it into a beverage.
