The Best Ways to Take an Herbal Tincture | Southern Botanicals

Hi, I’m Katie with Southern Botanicals and
today I’m going to show you the best ways to take herbal tinctures to support your health. So as an example I’ll be using using our Kidney and Bladder Cleanse Concentrate but this applies to any of our liquid herbal tinctures. So if you’re looking for the maximum effect from your tincture what you want to do is take the recommended amount
which in this case is one to two droppersful and just put it directly in your mouth under your tongue and hold it there for a few seconds just to let it start to absorb into your bloodstream directly under your tongue and then you may want to take a
sip of water afterwards just to wash the taste of the tincture out of your mouth. And it’s that easy. You can also dilute your tincture by putting the recommended amount in one to two ounces of water and that way it can dilute some of the flavor. You just don’t want to use too much liquid properties to dilute the herbal properties too much. So you just put that in water and drink it. And as an added tip if you’re looking to
evaporate off most of the alcohol in a tincture then you would just put it into a cup of hot tea which
in this case I’m using our Kidney Cleanse Tea which goes really well
with the tincture and that way you would just put it into the hot tea
stir it around and just let it sit for a few minutes to let the alcohol evaporate off
and then it’s ready for you to drink and enjoy. And finally if you’re taking a tincture like our Echinacea Extra Concentrate that’s meant to stimulate your immune
system and your lymph glands then what you want to do is put the recommended amount in about one to two ounces of water and then you would gargle with it for just a few seconds, as long as you want to really and that way it really helps to soothe your
throat and activate your lymph nodes which feels really good and so you just gargle And you should really feel it in your throat when you do that, it feels really good and it’s that easy So if you have any questions about taking our herbal tinctures or want to place an order you can call us at 727-443-7711 from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Eastern Time Monday through Friday or you can always contact us or place an order through our website and make sure you subscribe to our YouTube channel to never miss our
