FAQ

What is a elixir?
Elixirs are made from herbs, mushrooms and other plant matter soaked in water and alcohol to extract the beneficial constituents in liquid form. Other extraction methods use apple cider vinegar or vegetable glycerine.

What is the shelf life of elixirs?
Generally the shelf life of our elixirs range between three to five years. Once opened elixirs should be stored in a cool dark place. If you don’t plan on using the elixir for a long period of time refrigeration is not required but will help with longevity of the product.

How should you take elixirs?
Its recommended to be taken straight; however, if the taste is too strong it is ok to add to your beverage of choice. Adding drops to hot tea helps evaporate the alcohol content without effecting the potency.

How much should you take of an elixir?
For a full month supply per bottle it is best to follow the recommended dosage on the bottle. Herbal elixirs are often dosed at 2 dropperfuls twice daily for the fastest results. Consider this for increased healing time or if you’re facing an acute situation.

How long will it take before noticing a difference?
With regular use, a healthy individual  often notices a subtle change after the first week, confirms the change at 2 weeks, and is reaching maximum potential by 3 weeks.
