Tinctures are a very traditional way to work with medicinal plants. We infuse freshly-cut plant material into alcohol (brandy, vodka or gin) for at least four weeks. They are sold in 25ml glass amber bottles. These can ONLY be purchased directly from us and not through any of our retail channels. Price is R60. 

Please remember – we cannot pretend to diagnose or treat any condition with our products, and neither would we want to. As explained on the ointments page, we believe that working with healing plants is about far more than the application of proven allopathic capabilities. Rather, every plant is a teacher, and the particular lesson that you and your body need may differ from the next person’s. Click here to read our inspiration pages on the plants themselves. 

We work with many different plants in our tinctures, but tend to always have the following available:

  • Sand olive: Dodoneae Augustifolia – has been found to be a potent anti-viral and antibacterial, also good for bringing down a fever.
  • Sutherlandia and rooibos: Rooibos – Aspalathus Linearis and Belbos (cancer bush) – Lessertia Frutescens – good immune support, anti-depressant and anti-inflammatory. 
  • Warburgia: Pepper bush – Warburgia Salutaris – important remedy for parasites and microbial infections.
