DIY Herbal Tinctures

By Yellowstar2000 @TherapeuticOils

Many people like taking herbal supplements in the form of pills , but lately herbal pills have come under scrutiny for having no active ingredients and unhealthy additives.

Pills are usually filled with dried up and ground herbs, which oxidize and weaken herbal effectiveness as essential oil content and other constituents degrade.

DIY Herbal Tinctures

Herbal Pills:

Are NOT as bioavailable as liquid, meaning that they don’t absorb as well or as fast into the body as liquid forms such as tinctures

Cannot be tasted, which impairs results .

Pills are not easy to swallow. They are hard to digest and contain unhealthy binders

Most herbal pill casings are not vegetarian, because they contain gelatin which is from an
animal source most of the time, because it is cheaper.

Most casings and binders are not kosher .

Improper drying and over processed preparations may cause essential oils and other constituents to degrade and herbs to dissipate, and may contain contaminants.

Tinctures absorb better, are more effective and cheaper. If you make them yourself then you have quality control.
