What’s the Difference Between Tinctures and Essential Oils?
We love both! Just like Vanilla extracts that are normally used in our kitchen for baking, tinctures are made using the same method from medicinal plants using alcohol. Healing plants are weighed out in proper amounts and soaked in alcohol ranging from 50 to 180 proof alcohol. This process extracts everything in the plant leaving only the actual structure of the plant to be filter out changing it from “spirits” to an herbal extract.
Herbal tinctures are easy to use because you can start with as low as 1 drop and up your dosage to as much as needed.
Tinctures and essential oils are like comparing oranges to apples. They are just two different products. Essential oils has a completely different extraction process called distillation. Distillation is the process of separating only the highly concentrated “essential oils” from a liquid mixture using selective boiling and condensation. As the distillation takes place, the steam generated dissipates leaving the heavier essential oils to be collected.
Here at KuKista, our tinctures are still made in small batches, hand mixed and hand filtered for the very best quality and most effective healing extractions.
