***** Organic Schisandra Berry Extract
By Virgo Organics
Artistry & Nature Combined
Extracted from: Dried Berries
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.

And because of the high levels of antioxidants, it was shown in animal studies that andriamycin-induced cardiotoxicity, or heart muscle damage caused by anti-cancer chemical (chemo) therapy, can be improved with the use of Schizandra extract.

• 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.
