This is one of the few products I make from plant material that I don't grow here in the Grove.
This Oregon Grape Root is from Herbs and Sympathy in Hanover, PA. This plant is native to the Pacific Northwest and has been used for centuries as a blood builder, blood purifier, and tonic to the gastrointestinal tract, liver and gallbladder.
For those of us who struggle with sluggish bowels, constipation, acid reflux, and gall bladder disease, Oregon Grape Root can be an incredible ally. It pairs well with other bitter roots like burdock and dandelion to bring stimulation and healing to sluggish digestion and to balance the secretion of stomach acids.

Oregon Grape Root Tincture
Dried root in Everclear bottled in 1 ounce amber glass dropper bottles.
I generally start any tincture with 5-10 drops in a bit of water. Wait 15 minutes and see how you feel. You can take another 5-10 drops in water every 15 minutes until you feel the effects of the tincture in your body. Keep track of how many drops you have taken before you notice the effects, this is your body's dose of the tincture.
This tincture is safe to take three or four times daily or just once in awhile as needed.
