An herbal extract (tincture) is a preparation in which the active principles of an herb are extracted into alcohol. This concentrates and preserves the medicinal qualities of the herb. We grow many of the freshly gathered plants we use in preparing our extracts or wildcraft from pristine areas throughout New England and the Adirondack region of New York. Each plant is joyfully harvested in season with respect and gratitude for its gift of life and healing.

Occasionally, we use plants that are unavailable to us in the northeast region. These herbs are carefully gathered by knowledgable herbalists and shipped fresh or dried, depending on the herb.

WC= wildcrafted  

org= organically grown in our gardens, or the gardens of herbal friends and companies we support and are grateful for.

GWC= Grown without chemicals or pesticides~ often this also means the plants are from soil or farm that is not certified organic, but is healthy and viable soil and plants!


We use Organic alcohol made from non-GMO corn in preparing our liquid extracts. Simple to store and use, extracts provide a convenient and effective herbal preparation.

Woodland Mushrooms - Liquid Extracts

Mushrooms have a very special place in a forest ecology. The medicinal mushrooms we collect live on trees which they help to break down. In the process of decomposing the tree fiber, these mushrooms absorb many of the trace minerals and other nutrients held in the host tree. The Reishi and Turkey Tails are known as polypores, while the shitake is a gilled mushroom and the Chaga is a sterile conk. Mushrooms have a long history of use as food and medicine throughout the world, and are currently being investigated for use in many health concerns we are faced with in this present time. You can find more information in the book, Medicinal Mushrooms by Christopher Hobbs.
