    Why decoctions?

    Of the three main extraction methods used to produce herbal remedies, decoctions are simply the best. Macerations use solvents which may leave harmful residues in the end product, tinctures contain alcohol which is a systemic poison. Decoctions extract mineral salts and bitter principles through simmering herbs in our own distilled water for a prolonged period. The entire process takes 15 hours, is labour intensive so not conducive to mass production which is why herbal decoctions are uncommon on line. They contain far higher levels of active ingredients, no alcohol and can be made from hard plant parts unlike infusions. Our decoctions are made in small batches from organic ingredients by our fully qualified herbalist. They are also a superior form of supplementation than tablets or capsules, as most have artificially made ingredients, contain filers, flowing agents, excipients binding agents and preservatives. Also they often contain only one active ingredient neglecting the fact that molecules work synergistically in the body. Our qualified Herbalist uses only our own zero ppm quad filtered distilled water, all equipment used is stainless steel and our decoctions are bottled into steam sterilised UV resistant pharmaceutical grade glass bottles, which obviates the need to use preservatives of any kind. Be very careful not to touch the top of the bottle or the inside of the lid against anything or decant it into any container or jug that has not been steam sterilised unless the decoction is to be consumed immediately.

    Elecampane is a flowering plant native to Europe and Asia. This hardy plant has been serving humans in a plethora of ways for centuries. It was originally used by the Ancient Greeks to treat snake and spider bites. Romans used Elecampane as a remedy, a condiment, and to assess the freshness of honey. Medieval Europeans used the plant to make medical tonics, cosmetics and as a flavouring agent. Modern herbalists mainly use the plant to stimulate the GI tract, and as an expectorant.
