Tummy Tincture Info


Tummy Tincture is a great tasting herbal combination formulated specifically to help dispel gas, alleviate nausea and indigestion, and to help relieve reflux and colic. Many of our clients have reported that it has helped correct constipation in their babies as well. 

Storage of your Herbal Products


Herbal products come in many forms - teas, tinctures (liquid extracts), capsules, tablets, compresses, poultices, salves, creams, baths, footbaths (to name a few!), and of course, used in foods!  Here is how to care and store some of the most frequently used forms of herbal products:

Dried Herbs

If possible, store your dried herbs in a glass container, which will keep them fresh longer. Using dark glass will help to further keep light out, which ages the herb more quickly and can compromise its quality.  A dried herb should appear vibrant in color and have a wonderful smell to it.  Even though it’s dried, it should have an “alive” vibrancy to it – you should be able to sense the life in it!

Sage Tea & Sage Tincture


Sage Tea (or Tincture) is the best herb used to decrease breastmilk production, which is helpful for weaning or when over-production, chronic or frequent engorgement, or plugged ducts is a problem, or in cases of fetal demise. 

Pregnancy Tea & Pregnancy Tea Plus


Herb Lore's Pregnancy Tea and Pregnancy Tea Plus are healthful and refreshing herbal combinations that are supportive and toning to the entire system before, during and after pregnancy. The regular Pregnancy Tea may be used throughout the entire pregnancy, and because of its high vitamin and mineral content, achieves its best results when used on a long-term, daily basis. Pregnancy Tea Plus is similar to Pregnancy Tea, with the addition of Squaw Vine, a late-pregnancy tonic which further helps to strengthen and nourish the uterus, preparing it for the upcoming work of labor and birth. Because this herb has some very slight oxytocic properties to it (meaning it has the potential to start uterine contractions, although it's not likely), it's recommended for use during the last six weeks of pregnancy only. Native Americans used this herb successfully throughout their entire pregnancies (hence the name Squaw Vine) - even so, we at Herb Lore like to work very conservatively, therefore, we recommend the Pregnancy Tea Plus only during the last six weeks.  (The regular Pregnancy Tea may be taken throughout the entire pregnancy however.)

Pre-Conception Tea & Pre-Conception Tincture


Herb Lore's Pre-Conception Tea (and Tincture)  may be enjoyed freely throughout the day, every day, for months at a time. The herbs work wonderfully together to provide nutrition while encouraging a favorable environment to promote fertility and conception. These herbs, when used in combination with eachother in the correct amounts (as they are in this product), work to enhance fertility, increasing the odds of conception. Plus it tastes good and is very healthy for you!

Testimonial

I've been a client of Herb Lore for nearly 8 years, and have used their herbal products since they were introduced to me by my midwife when I was pregnant with my first child.  I value and trust their wisdom, knowledge and products implicitly.   Their obsession with product quality; their knowledge on every aspect of herbal medicine's intricacies, formulations, applications, contraindications - you name it, they know it or can find it!  I trust Herb Lore's unerring expertise and their high-quality products.  I am always assured at finding answers and solutions when I call Herb Lore, versus miles of red tape, run-arounds, side effects, and lack of positive results with conventional medicine.  I greatly appreciate the personal connection that they have taken the time to develop with me over the years.  Business isn't just about business; business isn't just about having a great product; business is about people.  Herb Lore always does a fabulous job of keeping a high level of service when working with their customers.  I feel valued and important because they put care, though and energy into my particular challenge.  Personalized service seemed to have been something of the past, but Herb Lore has brought it back!  Thank you so much!  D.P.
