5th Dimension Herbal Tinctures
Local Herbalist 5th Dimension has created our new favorite herbal tinctures to help support you in many aspects of your life! We have three of their wonderful tinctures available at our shop: Gut and Skin Support , Sleep and Never Support, and Complexion Support! Let plant magic help better your everyday!
What is a Tincture? A tincture consists of one or more herbs steeped for a long time (like, weeks!) in a solvent. The herbs are then strained from the solution, leaving behind a very potent herbal liquid. Many brands use a solution of alcohol, as it has a shelf life upwards of 10 years. At 5th Dimension, they use a solution of vegetable glycerin (a natural byproduct of plants, that tastes a little sweet) to make our tinctures accessible to all people, including those who don't consume alcohol. The shelf life of these incredible products are still marked on each bottle and is 4 years from the date of bottling. Typically, for a tincture to do its job properly you'll want to take it every day, sometimes multiple times a day. These are not one-and-done solutions! Herbs benefit from consistent, sustained usage and you won't feel their effects unless you make them a part of your daily routine. So carve out a moment of self-care every morning or night to take a dropper of your favorite tincture and experience the bliss of herbal remedies!
Beauty Bitters: Support Digestion & Skin-
This energetically grounding blend of bitter roots encourages a release of top-heavy stress. While pulling us back into our bodies, bitter flavors help to ease the burden of stress responses that mimic fight or flight so we can comfortably exist in rest & digest mode.
Beauty Bitters is a blend of herbs supporting our waste elimination systems (aka these herbs assist in our natural detoxification process). In doing so, we not only lend a helping hand to sluggish or stagnant systems but boost complexion!
Known as the forgotten flavor of the modern diet, Bitter is often controversial. This little herbalist is happy to see that Bitter is making a comeback as of late- and for great reason.
Bitters are plant extracts used as an additive in cocktails (mocktails in my case) or as a medicinal substance to promote appetite or digestion.
Bitters are taken prior to mealtime to stimulate appetite and support digestion, but in some practices are sipped slowly throughout meal time or taken after a heavy meal.
Tasting the bitter flavor on your tongue strikes the match on the body’s digestive process. When you taste bitter, you often start to salivate. Salivation is more than a reaction, it’s the green light for the biological process that is digestion! The body recognizes that food is coming, and starts to secrete the gastric acids and digestive enzymes that break down food.
Jayna Anderson, herbalist and founder of 5th Dimension says that she loves herbal bitters because they go deeper than just digestive support. Many herbs are bitter in flavor and supportive of various systems, such as the hepatic, lymphatic, skin & nervous systems.
5th Dimensions’s Beauty Bitters alcohol-free, vegan, gluten-free tincture calls on herbs such as Dandelion Root, Angelica Root, Ginger Root, Yellow Dock Root & Gentian Root. Together, this blend of traditional gut & liver supporting herbs clear the body of what no longer serves it. In doing so, one can cultivate a grounded sense of being, support digestion and support skin all in one go.
