Glycerites are herbal extracts which are made with an organic vegetable glycerin base instead of an alcohol base. They have a sweet quality to them and are perfect for children and those who prefer to avoid alcohol. Most of my tinctures can be made with a glycerin base. Just give me a call and I can make a batch especially for you. Shelf life is usually one to two years if kept in a cool dark place. All glycerites come in a 2 ounce amber glass bottle with a dropper top.
