Garlic Extract is a handy herbal medicine to have around the home, especially during cold and flu season.
The health benefits of garlic go on and on:
contains allicin, which is a powerful antioxidant.
fights infections: helps with the mucous membranes which help fight common colds and respiratory infections.
heart healthy: keeps the heart muscles elastic, induces relaxation of the blood vessels, prevents unhealthy clotting and reduces plaque formation in arteries; very effective for hypertension.
anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral, even showing to fight such bacteria as MRSA.
cancer fighters: shown to protect from such cancers as prostate, breast, colon and esophageal.
Diarrhea is a rather difficult problem to have, but from scientific researches, both garlic and ginger can help to overcome the symptoms of diarrhea. As for ginger, it helps with any stomach gas and spasms, and garlic is able to even destroy all harmful bacteria, which are in your intestines.
If you get sick a lot, including the common cold or flu, you should add more garlic to your diet. A 12-week study revealed that people who took 2.56 grams of garlic per day (or related supplements) not only got sick fewer times but the length and severity of their the cold or flu was improved.
Both ginger and garlic are known for their natural, antibacterial characteristics, and their ability to relieve congestion and loosen phlegm. So, ginger relieves congestion, softens aching muscles, and can soothe a sore throat. Garlic is considered to be an antibiotic and is often recommended for treating flu and colds.
Ginger's effectiveness against headaches has been proven. Ginger has been shown to decrease the severity and symptoms of headaches by blocking prostaglandins (the chemicals, which can induce inflammation in the brain blood vessels). In addition, this anti-inflammatory power in ginger can lower the discomfort of headaches, flu, and colds.
🌿 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.
Diuretic, diaphoretic, carminative, hypotensive, hypocholesterolemic
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.

I bought a trio after weeks of asthma episodes my episodes were so bad I thought I had Covid. Thank God I tested negative. I was admitted to the hospital and just started searching. After desperation and the fear of taking more asthma medication I found this lovely shop & bought lungwort cherry bark & ginger garlic I noticed the difference in TWO DAYS. I have a lot of mucus coming out which is something that gave me the flare ups in the first place. I can’t wait to see myself not needing the asthma pump and just being naturally breathing. So thankful I found this shop I am now a loyal customer.
