Product Description

At Great Spirit Farm Healing & Retreat Center, we believe that the plants at our feet serve a purpose, and many of them are medicinal, often possessing the same qualities as other more well-known medicinal herbs, yet specific to our local area, helping us live healthfully, and in balance with mother nature. We focus on finding and using local plants that grow naturally in our region, often wild-crafting, and always sustainably harvesting, with love in our heart and care for the plants that nurture us. We carefully select plants that are in healthy environments, free from chemicals and exhaust.

Our tinctures are made in small batches, with organic vodka, and pure spring water, with loving energy intended into them. Each tincture is a 2 ounce bottle, with no added artificial ingredients or colors. Shake well before using. Store in a cool, dry place. Tinctures are good for at least 3 years and the preparation date is on the bottle.  No refrigeration necessary.

Tinctures can be taken by placing 1-3 droppers full under tongue, in juice, tea or water in the morning and evening, as needed. Depending on the intended use, some herbs, like prescriptions, need time to build up in the system, so please give your tincture a couple weeks for full results.

Your purchase helps to support our mission and vision of helping people heal, individually and globally, on all levels. If you would like a tax-deductible receipt for your donation to our Church, please make a note when you check out.
