Podcast 038: Our Top Ten Tinctures
A listener asked us what would be our five favorite tinctures to have on hand, so this week we’re each going to share with you a list of herbs we just can’t live without! We talk a bit about each one’s virtues and the way we ourselves work with these herbs.
Katja’s list: ghost pipe, tulsi, calamus, ginger-chamomile, lobelia.
Ryn’s list: solomon’s seal, catnip, yarrow-sage, kava, cayenne.
