Organic Herbal Tinctures
A tincture is a medicine made by dissolving a drug in alcohol. I have taken the best quality Chinese medicinal herbs, sourced from a local company on Vancouver Island, to bring you this herbal medicine that is easy to administer and affordable.
To see the best results from your tincture, consistency is key. Unlike western medicine drugs where you may feel the effects immediately, the medicinal properties in the herbs are best felt after they have time to build up in the body, and usually after 3-10 days of taking the formula as prescribed.
If you find the taste of the tincture too strong, take a few sips of water immediately afterwards, or dilute the tincture into one ounce of water.
To extract the alcohol from the tincture, drop dose into warm water and let sit a few minutes while the alcohol evaporates.

This formula can be translated as “free and unfettered” or as “happy wanderer”.

Dose: 1 full dropper 3 times a day until the bottle is finished (approx. 3 weeks). If after one week you have noticed no difference, please increase the dose by .5-1 full dropper each time.
Yin Qiao San
This formula works wonders if taken at the first sign of symptoms of the common cold/flu. If you notice a sore scratchy throat, stuffy nose, slight aches and pains, take a few doses of this formula until the symptoms have resolved.
Yin Qiao San may also be used as a prophylactic, if your kids, partner, or coworkers are sick, take one or two doses after exposure to maintain your health!
