If the word “tincture” leaves a big question mark floating over your head, you’re not alone. Some people hear the word “tincture” and imagine old-timey apothecaries with jars of different herbs and minerals. Surprisingly, that’s not far from the truth!
People have been using different tinctures for thousands of years. Sometimes they helped treat colds, boost energy, or even to help people sleep. Now, however, we’re taking those classic tinctures and giving them a much-needed makeover!
Don’t get us wrong, the tinctures of old were still pretty amazing. We just wanted something a little different. We wanted a tincture that would help us manage stress while supporting our skin from the inside-out. Something that enlivened our senses and helped us embrace positivity.
If that sounds like something you could get behind, keep reading and discover how wellness tinctures can give you good vibes and glowing skin.
What is a Tincture?
In the most basic sense, a tincture is a concentrated plant extract. Those plants can be herbs, flowers, roots, or even fruits. Traditionally, alcohol or vinegar is used to extract the active ingredients of all that plant goodness so it can be concentrated into a liquid. This makes it easier for people to benefit from the different properties of those plants.
This method is so common that you might be surprised to hear you’ve most likely already encountered a tincture or two (technically, vanilla extract is a tincture).
Ancient Egyptians created tinctures for a variety of medicinal purposes, and by the Victorian Era, tinctures were pretty common throughout Europe. When pharmacology began using capsules for medicine, however, tinctures fell by the wayside for a bit.
Fast-forward to today and tinctures are back in the spotlight, baby!
Over the last several years, there’s been a mental shift away from treating individual symptoms and towards whole mind and body wellness. With that in mind, it’s no wonder that more and more people are curious about tinctures.
The process of creating a tincture can preserve different parts of the plant that YOU can benefit from--think terpenes, essential fatty acids, etc. While being able to isolate specific parts of a plant has its benefits, using the whole plant comes with a unique magic of its own. Plus, with a little bit of creativity and ingenuity, you can even combine several different ingredients for one ultra-revitalizing wellness tincture.
Pssst! That was the inspiration for OUR tincture!
What’s in Our Revitalizing Wellness Tincture?
If you’ve been part of the Fifth & Root family for a while, you’ll understand why tinctures appeal to us.
If you’re new here, let’s just say...we’re all about that plant life! Yes, skincare is our passion, but there are several different avenues someone can take to arrive at healthy, glowing skin. We’ve just found that plants have a place in ALL those journeys. Don’t believe us?
If your journey to glowing skin involves reducing stress via meditation, place a few plants nearby for good vibes and fresh air. Prefer to get clear skin via nutrition? Eat your greens! And, obviously, we think the traditional method of using skincare products is greatly enhanced by infusing them with powerful plant actives. It should come as no surprise, then, that our Revitalizing Wellness Tincture is a combination of some of our favorite herbs, adaptogens, cannabinoids, and terpenes.
When you first open a bottle of our Revitalizing Wellness Tincture, you’ll probably notice its vibrant scent. That’s from our uplifting blend of Nashi Pear Terpenes! Terpenes are the organic hydrocarbons found in most plants that dictate their flavor and aroma. They do a lot more than that though. Terpenes can also influence our moods (some help us relax, de-stress, boost energy, etc.) This particular blend promotes energy and vitality to give you a boost in confidence while enhancing good vibes.
We also wanted to include ingredients that would help combat stress and reduce inflammation. Those items both have a surprisingly huge impact on our skin, so addressing those concerns was one of our top priorities. That’s why we included Turmeric and Ashwagandha.
The former is packed full of antioxidants that are great for inflammation, and the latter is a powerful adaptogen. Ashwagandha helps to reduce stress and promote a sense of calm by reducing cortisol. Too much cortisol can cause your skin’s sebaceous glands to produce excess oil. That can mean shiny skin, clogged pores, and even acne. So, not only will Ashwagandha help de-stress your skin, it will literally help YOU de-stress.
We wanted to take things a step further, however, by adding three of our favorite cannabinoids. CBD (cannabidiol), CBC (cannabichromene), and CBG (cannabigerol) are all non-psychoactive cannabinoids that promote balance inside and out. That means less stress, better vibes, and skin that glows.
Basically, we wanted a Wellness Tincture that helped us combat urban stress. Something that felt like a big, warm hug on a sunny afternoon that also spread good vibes and glowing skin.
There’s a good reason we called it “Drops of Sunshine” ;)
How to Use a Wellness Tincture for Good Vibes and Glowing Skin
There are a couple different ways you can add a wellness tincture to your routine, so do whatever works best for you. Each tincture is a bit different, but here’s how we recommend using ours:
If you like the direct, no-nonsense approach…
Shake the bottle well and place 1 dropper-full under your tongue. Hold it there for 20 seconds and then swallow. This is also known as the sublingual method. By holding it under your tongue, the tincture is absorbed quickly into your body via capillaries in your cheeks, gums, and under your tongue
To kick-start those good vibes, consider reciting a mantra or listening to your favorite song while you wait!
If you prefer to ease into your wellness practice…
If you’re still getting used to the idea of a tincture, you can actually add them to your morning or afternoon beverages or smoothies! Those Nashi Pear Terpenes would really compliment a tropical-inspired smoothie or even your favorite juice or sparkling water. Just add a dropper-full to your beverage of choice and sip away at your glass of liquid sunshine.
