Echinacea Root Tincture

Echinacea Root Tincture

from £15.75
Step 1: Select size
 
Step 2: Select quantity

A concentrated 1 : 3 45% tincture made from the root of the Echinacea purpurea plant. Echinacea is used internally to help maintain a healthy immune system. The tincture can also be used externally for compresses, in washes, lotions or sprays.

As a more supportive alternative, consider for horses our Equimmune range and for dogs, our Canine Immunity Plus.

See "How do I use it" for feeding guidelines.

With regard to our tincture preparation, we use a traditional method : the plant material (herb, flower, root) is macerated (steeped) in ethyl alcohol (from fermented sugar beet) and water over several weeks : the ratio of water to alcohol varies depending on whether the plant's constituents/active ingredients are water soluble or alcohol soluble. 

 At the end of this maceration, the plant material is pressed and the liquid containing all the vital active constituents is poured off. 

 Most of our tinctures are 1 : 3 : that is 1 part of the plant material to 3 parts liquid.

 The % denotes the percentage of alcohol to water in the liquid part of the tincture.
