REGISTRATIONS: Western Botanical Medicine is one of the first herbal tincture companies in the USA to become certified organic in 2004! A true dedication & commitment to supporting the growing, handling and processing of organic herbs is apparent at Western Botanical Medicine. Their manufacturing facility is registered with the FDA and follows current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP).
THE PROCESS: Western Botanical Medicine sources high quality certified organic herbs from organic growers as well as reputable organic herb suppliers who have integrity, not low prices. At Western Botanical Medicine a premium is paid for high quality herbs. Only certified organic or conscientiously wild crafted herbs, certified organic cane alcohol and filtered spring water are used in the manufacturing of our high potency & effective herbal tinctures.
Herbs are fully macerated (soaked) in an alcohol and water mixture in stainless steel or glass vessels for a minimum of two weeks after which they are pressed in stainless steel equipment. The resultant liquid herbal extract, known as a herbal tincture, is then filtered and bottled in glass only. Plastic is never used to store our tinctures. Western Botanical Medicine's herbal tinctures are supplied in 4, 8, 16, & 32oz amber glass bottles.
Herbal Medicine, or Phytotherapy as it is also known, is the oldest recorded system of medicine. It is supported by the World Health Organization who estimate that 80% of the planets four billion population rely solely on animal & plant based medicine. Herbal Medicine involves the use of plant and plant products, whose 'active constituents' — the secondary metabolites — are measurable analytically and with ever increasing research, are shown to be efficacious pharmacologically. This ancient form of medicine is a supportive, restorative and natural means to obtain and maintain health with herbs.
