The Raspberry plant is most known for its edible plants, however the leaves of the plant can and have been utilized for their properties in teas and flavourings for centuries. The species we use in our decoction is organic Rubus idaeus; the hardy plant is native to Europe and Northern Asia and is commonly found there as a wild plant in forests and clearings.
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 water for a prolonged period. 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 of those have artificially made ingredients and 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.
This is an entirely natural additive and preservative free product, do not contaminate the inside of the bottle or lid with a finger, never return decanted decoction back into the bottle, store in the fridge after opening. Use within 6 weeks of opening.
