Shatavari has been traditionally used for centuries as a tonic herb for women, to help balance female hormones, increase fertility and libido and increase breast milk production after birth. It also alleviates hot flushes, reduces stress, relieves digestive issues such as bloating and acid reflux. It is antimicrobial and can help relieve infections such as cystitis and other bacterial and fungal infections.
Otherwise known as marigold, calendula is an anti-inflammatory herb that can help with a variety of skin problems. It also has a reputation for balancing hormones, specifically helping with delayed and painful periods.
Rose petals are delightfully aromatic, cooling and relaxing. They are helpful for calming the mind, lifting mood and relieving stress and worry. They also support hormonal balance and help reduce high cholesterol levels. Rose has been traditionally used to alleviate grief and heartache. Studies also show that rose can help alleviate menstrual pain with the same effectiveness as the medicine mefenamic acid.
Liquorice helps to balance female hormones and can prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs). It also has anti-depressive qualities which can be useful if you experience mood fluctuations.
Meadowsweet offers digestive support for issues like indigestion and acid reflux. Thanks to its astringent, anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties, it is also helpful to support the body in dealing with urinary tract infections.
This product contains shatavari, meadowsweet, calendula, rose, liquorice, purified water and ethyl alcohol.
Our Tinctures are alcohol based. Using alcohol enables us to effectively extract a wide range of constituents from plants. It also means that tinctures keep well - alcohol prevents the growth of bacteria and inhibits enzyme activity. Tinctures are easy to take and to carry around with you as you only need small amounts (generally of 2-3 teaspoons per day). If you cannot or would not like to take alcohol in your medicine, please consider our herbal supplements or herbal teas within the same range and/or consult one of our medical herbalists so that they can devise a bespoke prescription for you.
