Each tincture has been lovingly made by hand within 2 days before or after the full moon, and blessed with Reiki. After absorbing the power of the Stinging Nettles for at least three moons (ca. 29 days), the plant matter is then strained out and the tincture liquid is poured into airtight containers.
Our Stinging Nettle Tincture is made from 80-proof vodka and the stems and leaves of fresh, wild-harvested nettles. We do our very best to ensure that we harvest from areas in nature that haven’t been contaminated by pesticides, bug spray, or other chemicals.
Note: Our tinctures are not certified organic, because that’s an outrageously expensive procedure for a single-person LLC.
Shelf Life of a Wild-Harvested, Organic, Plant-Based Tincture
Obviously, you’ll want to store your tincture in a cool, dry location that is well protected from light. Make sure that the lid is tightly sealed, so that water does not evaporate.
Your tincture will retain its potency for at least three years. (That’s the longest we’ve had tinctures lying around and have used them…. but theoretically an alcohol-based tincture should last for many, many years – or decades!)
- Stinging Nettles, Organic
- Vodka (40% or 80-proof)
Note: Due to legal reasons, we must label our alcohol-based tinctures as ‘not for human consuption and for external use only’. Although the tinctures are made from drinkable, get-drunkable alcohol, we are not licensed to retail or wholesale alcoholic beverages. Our tinctures are therefore an alcoholic supplement, not FDA-approved (because we despise the Food and Drug Administration of the U.S.A.) and do not come with a claim to ‘cure’, ‘heal’ or ‘treat’ any perceived ailment. Please also keep out of reach from children and pets.
