Information about the traditional uses of herbs and colloidal silver offered here is not a substitute for medical advice.
Most herbal products are safe for children in weight-related doses, but herbal tinctures should first be dropped into hot water and allowed to cool in order to evaporate the alcohol before giving it to the child. This can be done in a spoon for infants (for example, a colic remedy).
Please observe all warnings regarding the use of individual herbs during pregnancy! While most are completely safe, some of these herbs can be used safely while pregnant only under the care of a skilled practitioner.
Do not exceed the recommended dosages.
Information, statements and products on this website have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, mitigate, treat, cure, or prevent any disease or health condition. When you purchase products from my store, you assume all responsibility for their use or mis-use. Common-sense warning: Never use any product to which you are allergic or which causes adverse symptoms, whether it is an herb, an over-the-counter medication, a prescription pharmaceutical, or a food.
Keep bottles tightly sealed (if cap and bottle threads are clean it will seal better) and do not touch the dropper to any surface, as this may contaminate the tincture. Alcohol-based tinctures keep well and remain potent for many years if protected from heat, light, and air.
Colloidal silver and essential oils should also be kept out of heat and light, and kept tightly capped.
Child-proof dropper tops are available; see options under Herbal Tinctures: Special Orders to order extras, or request one for free with your tincture by adding a comment to your order.
