Many customers ask if they need to avoid alcohol-based tinctures during pregnancy or while nursing. The answer is no; tinctures contain a very small amount of alcohol, similar to that found in a ripe banana, and are safe to consume while pregnant or nursing (if the herbs themselves are approved for that use). Some people choose alcohol-free alternatives for personal, dietary, or religious reasons. Always give babies and children the non-alcohol version if possible. See Herb Lore's website for more information.
This combination of herbs is useful for colic, reflux and other digestive complaints including indigestion, nausea, heartburn and gas. It provides immediate relief and is one of Herb Lore's most popular items!
Note: this product may increase breastmilk production in some nursing mothers due to the Fennel content. Use sparingly in early pregnancy.
Babies: Tummy Tincture is useful for colic, reflux and other digestive issues including indigestion, nausea, heartburn and gas. Mom can take the tea or tincture and pass it to her baby through the breastmilk. In severe cases of digestive distress in baby, mom can give the age-appropriate number of drops of the non-alcohol tincture directly to the baby. (See the Children's Dosage Guide on Herb Lore's website.) Non-alcohol tinctures may be given directly to babies six months or older, but it is best for the breastfeeding mother to take the herbs which will pass the herbs to her baby via breastmilk. Many clients report that this product also gently helps with their little one's constipation.
