Granny Good's Tonics (also known as Tinctures) are produced from 100% naturally grown fresh herbs infused into an alcohol base to effectively draw out the medicinal properties of each plant. These are concentrated remedies which are easy to use and immediately effective. If you are refraining from alcohol use, put the tincture drops into just-boiled water to allow the alcohol to evaporate 10-15 minutes before taking. The alcoholic content in one dose of Tonic is equal to 1/85 of a glass of red wine! Tonics may be taken in a small amount of water or in acute situations, drops may be placed under the tongue and absorbed sublingually. Follow dosage directions on tonic labels.
