***** Organic Chamomile Extract (Matricaria recutita)
By Virgo Organics
Artistry & Nature Combined
Extracted from: Dried Flowers
Herb: Alcohol Ratio- 1:2
🌿 A good strong herbal tincture is some of the best medicine available. The strong taste is largely due to the amount of herb that has been drawn into the liquid, and alcohol draws out more herbal properties than anything else. While you can make tinctures out of glycerin, they will not be as strong and will not have the same extended shelf life as an alcohol tinctured herb. A less powerful tincture means that you will have to take more to equal the same dose as one made from alcohol.
🌿 Fun fact: The amount of alcohol in the average dose of a tincture is equal to the amount of alcohol in a ripe banana.
If you would like us to make an extract using kosher vegetable glycerin instead, please leave a note in regards to this at checkout.
Chamomile is often ingested as a tea to calm the nervous system and the digestive tract, and is mild enough to be administered to babies with colic. Chamomile is soothing to irritated skin and membranes, and is often found in lotions and hair products. Other studies illuminate this plant's potential to assist in healing wounds and soothing gastrointestinal conditions, along with relaxing the nervous system.
Chamomile flower tinctures may help calm ulcerative colitis, GERD, gastritis and improve digestion, supporting the gastrointestinal tract and easing a nervous stomach. Chamomile is frequently used to treat colic in infants and teething problems. It is useful as a natural treatment for allergies and works much as an antihistamine would. Chamomile may also relieve morning sickness during pregnancy. It is also used to speed healing of wounds, skin ulcers, burns and to treat acne, eczema, and rashes, and is excellent for diaper rash.
Chamomile has been studied for its beneficial effects in the management of diabetes. The study concluded that Chamomile regulates blood sugar or blood glucose. It has been shown that when given to animals in the study a lesser amount of glucose was turned into sorbitol (a sugar alcohol). Excess sorbitol can cause damage to kidneys, eyes and nerve cells. The study stated that there was a clear link between the daily consumption of Chamomile extract and preventing the progression of diabetic complications and hyperglycemia. These benefits aren't only for those with diabetes, even people without diabetes can benefit from maintaining normal blood sugar levels. Blood sugar swings are associated with fatigue, insulin resistance and sugar cravings, among other symptoms. Taking measures to regulate blood sugar levels can actually prevent the onset of diabetes in healthy individuals and it can also help to make you feel more energetic and maintain a healthy weight.
1 oz., 2 oz., and 4 oz. extracts come in amber glass bottles with a dropper.
8 oz. and 16 oz. sizes come in amber glass bottles with a plastic screw cap and do not include a dropper.
>>> What is the best way to take liquid herbal extracts?
Mix the liquid extract into water or juice for consumption. Mix the prescribed number of extract drops into 2-3 ounces of water. You can also add the drops to warm tea (not piping hot) or juice. Certain herbs may be damaged by high heat, so avoid adding the extract to "hot" water or coffee. Taking them straight from the dropper may cause a burning sensation in the mouth. If you choose to take the extract straight, please have water handy to drink immediately after.

• The more thoroughly a soap bar can dry out between uses, the longer it will last. Make sure to use a soap saver or soap dish so that your soap can dry out between uses. Don't allow your soap to sit in a puddle of water or let the shower pour down on it. For soap saver trays and pouches, please visit our shop.
• Softer water usually makes your soap last longer because the soap lathers more quickly so you don't have to rub it as much.
• A person who uses a washcloth, sea sponge, or a different lathering aid will use less soap than one who rubs the soap directly over the skin.
Yes we do. PLEASE contact me if you have ANY questions or need a certain product made without certain ingredients & I will do my best to accommodate you.
