We have added some goodies to our Camino shop, as well as a new partner to the Camino swag clan! We are so excited to now be carrying a few of Roots Apothecary products! Our newest addition to the shop is Roots Apothecary’s double extracted, and triple filtered tinctures!
How Tinctures are Made
In the general tincture creation process the herbs are submerged in alcohol. When the herbs are soaked in alcohol for a period of time the alcohol absorbs the medicinal properties of the herbs. The infused alcohol is then strained from the herbs, and there you have a traditional tincture.
What we love about Roots Apothecary’s process of creating their tinctures is the double extraction of each herb mixture. As they state on their website, the “first extraction is 45 days of high quality, certified organic cane alcohol extraction (ethanol). After the herbs are strained, they are extracted a second time for 45 minutes at a low temperature (140deg F) with reverse osmosis water. The two extractions are combined and held at 140deg F for 10 minutes to flash a percentage of ethanol to maintain potency. The purpose of a double extraction is pulling both ethanol and water soluble nutrients from each herbal blend into solution.”
This ensures purity and potency of each tincture.
Which Tinctures We Carry and How to Use Them
The tinctures we have chosen to carry in our shop hold some very special powers. We want our clients to have a full arsenal of stress management, relaxation boosting, and overall well being products to help them achieve their “Camino bliss” long after their massage. The tinctures we love and have currently stocked up in our shop are below.
Ingredients: Ashwagandha root
- Cortisol and stress response
- Mood and energy support
- Improved mental and physical stamina
- Adrenal balance
- Overall health and wellness
Directions: Do not consume tincture right out of the container. Dilute two droppers full, to at least 4oz of water. It is recommended to consume this twice a day with or without food, and weave it into your everyday routine to establish consistency. Adaptogens like Ashwgandha have their benefits increased when used regularly.
Another one of our favorite ways to ingest the Ashwagandha tincture is to add 2-3 droppers full to your morning cup of coffee. Adding this tincture to your morning cup of coffee combats the caffeine response in the body. The caffeine in coffee on its own may get your day going, but it also can cause unwanted inflammation and over stimulation on your adrenals, which can trigger a stress response similar to “fight or flight” in the body.
When you add Ashwagandha to your “cuppa” it helps to smooth out your caffeine experience by lowering cortisol and protecting your adrenals to allow for a more even, clear minded focus.
