Botanica herbal tinctures begin with the plant. For maximum efficacy and bioavailability, all plants are harvested at their peak potency, then meticulously examined by hand before processing. Once accepted, the botanical matter is tinctured using a unique alchemical spagyric process, based on traditional techniques. During this process, the plant matter is tinctured and any remaining residue is removed and reduced to white ash. These calcined minerals are then rejoined with the liquid extract. The final product contains plant actives and minerals, as well as the full energetic spectrum of the plant.
