Conditions of Use
Information about the traditional uses of herbs, oils, and colloidal silver offered here is not a substitute for medical advice, nor is this information making any medical claim as to the effectiveness of those traditional uses. It is offered for educational data about the historical uses of the products, and in some cases information about the chemical properties which have been scientifically studied. Treating any condition should be done only after professional medical diagnosis, and under the advice of a skilled practitioner.
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 intake of herbal extracts.

Common-sense warning: Never use any product to which you are allergic or which causes adverse symptoms, whether it is a natural herb or oil, 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 product.

Store tinctures, essential oils, and colloidal silver in a cool dark place, away from flames, heat, and light.
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.
