Our best seller White Pine Elixir (Pinus Strobus) is concentrated, delicious, and made with wildcrafted white pine needles from Maine or Massachussets' forests (Pinus Strobus). In addition to pine needles, a few bee balm leaves are included to enhance the immune body balancing effect.
Alcohol is a stronger medium for extraction of resinous white pine needles than water, so extracts and elixirs will have more of the white pine key constituents than a tea will. However, we also include hot water as an extraction media to capture water soluble constituents. Alcohol also allows quick absorption of the herb into the body. Remember to place drops of this product under your tonge for an efficient access into your body systems.
White pine has traditionally been used to support the respiratory system promoting bronchial wellness and your body's natural defense.
The directions on how to use it are on the bottle’s label in the product photos. You may receive a clear glass or amber glass bottle depending on availability.
Ingredients: wildcrafted white pine needles (pinus strobus), some wildcrafted bee balm (monarda didyma), vegetable glycerin, and organic grain alcohol.
Pine needle fresness do not last long, needles dry out fast and become brown, that's why elixir-tinctures are the best way to preserve key components fresh/active for years without losing potency. Unlike regular Elixirs, our extraction method provides a concentrated, delicious elixir.
We harvest pine needles for this product from pines in the woods of Maine or Massachusetts, with no car access to avoid pollution. We also avoid areas near power lines due the pesticides commonly used to clear these areas. Sometimes we use material from healthy pines from the woods right next to our backyard.
Glycerin as a taste enhancer: like sugar alcohols, glycerin tastes sweet but it is not metabolized as sugar in the body. For that reason, it’s sometimes used as a sweetener in foods marketed to diabetics and low-carb dieters.
Safety Considerations: keep away from children. Consult with your doctor if you are pregnant, nursing, taking medication you have a medical condition.
