Very Berry Tincture

Herbal Mixes: Very Berry Tincture

VERY BERRY TINCTURE
Contains: Bilberry fruit powder, Bilberry leaf, Elderberry fruit, Red Raspberry, Orange Peel.

This combination is one of our favorites!

Directions:
Fill a clean glass jar with 1/3 of herb mix, maybe a little more. Fill jar with 90 proof rum, vodka, or whiskey, screw lid on, label including all the herbs. The alcohol will break down the herbal properties in about 3 weeks. Shake once a day to help keep all the herb loose. After 3-4 weeks strain herbs off and throw away. Honey can be added to liquid tincture to make it more palatable. Keep tincture in a place out of sun and not too warm. A cabinet works great!

Allergy
by Page on Feb 22, 2014

Would it be at all possible to get this without Red Raspberry in it due to a severe allergy?

    Hello,
    Unfortunately we are unable to do any special orders at this point so your best option would be to try mixing up your own. Thank you!

Pregnancy?

Do you recommend using this during pregnancy? Thank-you!

    Re: Pregnancy?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Apr 1, 2013

    Personally I would feel safe taking it during pregnancy if made with glycerine or a non-alcoholic base, however I would suggest asking your health care provider before using. Also you shouldn't take it all the time, basically as an immune system booster, as the bilberry can inhibit iron absorption if taken over a long period of time, so we would suggest 2 wks. on-2 wks. off.

when would you use this?
by Joy on Jan 3, 2013

I am looking to strengthen the womb post cesarean delivery 8 months ago. Would that be an appropriate application for this tincture? How long would you recommend taking it and is it safe while breastfeeding?

    I would suggest using Red Raspberry for this!

Dosage on very berry mix
by Cynthia Blaha on Dec 1, 2012

I don't know if this mixture would be the same as
straight bilberry tincture, but the dosage on a bottle of tincture that I purchased recommends you take it for six days then off for one. Which of the herbs would decrease iron absorption, just the bilberry or the combination of all the herbs?

    Re: Dosage on very berry mix
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 28, 2013

    The main one is bilberry!

very berry tincture
by Charlotte Forrest on May 26, 2012

I would like to know what the dosage is on the Very Berry Tincture and how many times a day?????

    Re: very berry tincture
    by Bulk Herb Store on Nov 21, 2012

    Hi! The recommended dosage is 1/2 a tsp 1-2 times a day but while this is good for you I suggest that you do not take it for a long period of time. Bilberry if taken in large amounts and over a long time it can inhibit iron absorption. Be sure to consult a doctor before taking it if you are on any medications! Thanks for your question!

I borrowed my friend's Nourishing Traditions book, and now I know why you guys enjoy it so much. It set me straight on how we should be eating. I always wanted to eat healthier, but thanks to the diet "dictocrats", I didn't even know what eating healthy meant. I enjoyed the book so much I'm ordering my own copy. Thanks for your help.
