Bobinsana is a plant which originates for the Amazonian basin, where it grows on the edges of rivers and streams. It is a popular plant, grown for both it’s beauty, and for it’s use in traditional healing.
It is believed that Bobinsana is a powerful yet gentle teacher plant, who heals and opens the heart, promoting compassion and empathy, and increased awareness of our connection to the natural world. It is one of the plants commonly used in the practice of dieta.
All parts of the plant are used medicinally, and it is traditionally used for a wide range of conditions, including rheumatism, arthritis, inflammation, colds, and fevers. In some areas, it is used as a contraceptive, so should be avoided by pregnant women.
Please consult your health practitioner, or take the time to research whether a herb is the right plant for you, and ensure there will be no interactions with any medications you may be using.
Alcohol extracts are far superior to any other method of extraction. It extracts the most amount of the chemicals compared to any other solvent. It helps the medicine to also diffuse quickly into the bloodstream.
Alcohol is warming and medicine unto itself. To add, it also can esterify vitamins, oils and other medicinal chemicals making them more bioavailable and water soluble.
To be really specific: the amount of alcohol in tinctures is incredibly tiny. Less than you will get from eating a few pieces of bread.
If you are taking 20 drops of a 60 percent alcohol tincture every hour for an acute condition, you will get less than 2ml of alcohol over the course of a day.
If you are taking a general dose of 20 drops three times daily, this is less alcohol than you will get from eating two slices of bread.
If alcohol is a serious problem for you, then consider alternative extracts.
Please store in a cool dark place, out of sunlight, heat & air exposure.
