Our White Pine Extract (Pinus Strobus)is a highly concentrated extract or tincture. The process includes a higher organic grain alcohol concentration combined with heat and mechanical treatment for the extraction of fresh white pine needle components beyond usual methods.
Alcohol is a stronger medium for extraction of resinous white pine needles than water, so tinctures / extracts will have more of a plant’s constituents than a tea will. However we also use hot water as an extraction media to capture water soluble constituents. The alcohol allows quick absorption of the herb into the body. Read the directions in the bottle’s label (see the photo). For best results, place the liquid under your tongue for 1 min for direct access to you body system, some dilution in any tea or water is recommended as this is a strong alcohol flavor tincture.
We harvest our white pine (Pinus Strobus) material from Maine or Massachussets' forests, always away from roads to avoid contamination and pesticide pollution. White pine needles have traditionally been used to support the respiratory system promoting bronchial wellness and the body's natural defense.
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.
