Elecampane is also used to provide flavor in foods and beverages, and to lend fragrance in beauty products.

Elecampane is grown from seeds plants in spring or fall. This is a perennial plant often grown ornamentally. Elecampane plants thrive in full to part sun with well-drained soil.
All of my tinctures are made with fresh plant matter that has been either ethically wildcrafted from contaminant free areas or it has been grown organically in my own garden!
I use 100 proof food grade alcohol which means each bottle has 50% water 50% alcohol so each drop is a balanced 1:1 ratio and is ready to use straight out of the bottle!
I offer two common sizes of lead-free glass dropper bottles 15ml & 30ml! The 15ml is ideal for your pocket and taking with you on trips and the 30ml is the perfect size for your remedy cabinet at home!
Each tincture label displays dosage suggestions!
