Bigfoot's Herbal Tinctures
Herbs are sustainably wildcrafted or grown in our own organic garden, harvested and processed by hand, and extracted into alcohol-based tinctures by Peter Bigfoot himself, in small batches. Tinctures will last two years, or more, probably losing potency gradually but maintaining their strength better if kept in a cool, dark place. However, we have found that tinctures have still been effective after storage in a glove compartment through an Arizona summer.

The one that started it all ... I use this as my all purpose, “nip it in the bud” remedy to empower the immune system in such ailments as flu, fever, sore throat, viruses, herpes, swollen glands, colds, lower back pain, some headaches, internal infections, etc., and as a strengthening tonic.

Not recommended in cases of liver or kidney disorders. When brewing tea from dried chaparral herb isn’t convenient, dilute a few drops of this tincture in water.

I have very successfully treated bitten pets in this way too. Herbal ingredient: Echinacea root. (2 fl. oz.)
Hormonal balancing remedy historically used by women who suffer PMS or perimenopausal symptoms such as anxiety, mood swings, irritability, or hormonal imbalances.

This is my primary remedy for premenstrual syndrome, which I believe to be the result of an exhausted, congested, and toxic liver.
