The Organic Echinacea Tincture is made with fresh UK grown Echinacea purpurea (whole plant) in organic alcohol. Suitable for ages 12+.
The Echinacea species are perennial herbs native to Midwestern North America although they grow well in the UK and North European climates. Of the nine species, E. Angustifolia, E. Purpurea, and E. Pallida are the most commonly used.
Historically, Echinacea has been used by the American Indians for more illnesses than any other plant.
Echinacea Benefits and Properties
