***** Organic Wild Cherry Bark Extract
By Virgo Organics
Artistry & Nature Combined
Wild cherry is used for colds, whooping cough, bronchitis, mild asthma, hyperventilation, and other lung problems; diarrhea; gout; digestive disorders; pain; and fever.
It's a medicinal herb derived from the black cherry tree that has been used for hundreds of years due to its antiviral, antibacterial, and anticancer properties. It is rich in minerals such as zinc, iron, calcium, and magnesium and phytochemicals such as quercetin and kaempferol.
Wild cherry bark also contains vasorelaxant, expectorant, and decongestant properties and can significantly help to remove mucus from the lungs and increase lymphatic system function.. which is the reason cherry bark is a common ingredient found in cough syrups and is an effective remedy for respiratory conditions such as bronchitis, laryngitis, asthma, pertussis, colds, flu, and chronic lung congestion.
Extracted from: Dried bark
Herb: Alcohol Ratio- 1:3
🌿 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.
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 1-2 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.
***If using this extract for breathing issues, asthma, cough or sore throat, I recommend you take it straight from the bottle..wait approximately 30 seconds.. and then drink water down afterwards. The reason is for the cherry bark to target the throat first, to give it a moment to absorb, then drink water down to help the herb work further down into your system.

• 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.

Prior to my last review on the Lungwort, I take this because of my asthma. My asthma has been insanely bad. I paired this up with the Lungwort. I take this as needed, by itself, during the times I’m having a hard time breathing. These genuinely work. I’m amazed and happy! For me, the taste wasn’t great for me. However, if it’s helping me I don’t mind taking it. I highly recommend this seller for any concerns you have! She is very descriptive with her answers and so helpful! FAVORITE SHOP ON ETSY BY FAR!!
