Scutellaria liquid extract

Available in 2 oz dropper bottle. (Shipping +tax included)

$19.00

*Note: Alcohol based herbal extractions dilutes once in water. 1 dropper full (1ml) of extract might consist of 0.01% of alcohol amount. The other way to completely extract trace of alcohol from an alcohol based herbal supplement is, to dilute in a little amount of hot water. The hot water evaporates alcohol from the supplement completely, then you can add it in a glass of cold water. Also taken with herbal tea, alcohol will evaporate from the supplement.

However, for a completely non alcoholic version, I extract with Apple cider vinegar or Vegetable Palm Glycerine and spring water. Please write or message me, ‘non-alcoholic extraction’. Non alcoholic herbal supplements will be usually safer to use for age 4 and above.
