Frequently Asked Questions

Why not use distilled water?

Our Tincture Blends are made with purified natural spring water. Distilled water doesn’t contain any essential properties, and so we use spring water to infuse beneficial minerals into every tincture.

Are your products safe for kids to use?

We recommend speaking with your health care practitioner before adding any new herbs to your family’s wellness routine. Our products are crafted for adults as some of the ingredients may not be suitable for children.

Can any of the Tincture Blends be taken together?

Our Tincture Blends can be taken together. We recommend working with your health care practitioner before combining herbal formulas to determine what will work best for your wellness needs.

Can Tincture Blends be taken long-term?

Each of our Tincture Blends have their own recommended duration of use where applicable. We recommend speaking with your health care practitioner to determine a duration of use that aligns with your wellness needs.

How long do you macerate your herbs for?

On average, we macerate our herbs for about 8 days. The maceration times and liquid ratios vary between herbs, and we process them according to their individual chemistry.

What is cane alcohol? How much alcohol is found in a Tincture Blend?

Cane alcohol is made from fermented and distilled sugar cane. The majority of our Tincture Blends contain only 38% alcohol by volume. This means that 1 mL of the tincture would contain about 0.38 mL of alcohol. To learn the alcohol content of a specific Tincture Blend, please contact help@harmonicarts.ca.

What does it mean if your product has an NPN number on it?

Many of our products have a Natural Product Number (NPN). This means that the product is registered as a Natural Health Product (NHP) and the health claims we’re making about the product have been reviewed and approved by Health Canada.

What is a Tincture Blend and how should I use it?

Tinctures provide a convenient vehicle for potent plant and mushroom medicine. The tincture process begins with distilling herbs in alcohol and water to extract their therapeutic compounds. When ready, the herbs are strained out, and you’re left with a tincture packed with wellness benefits.  Learn more about our formulation process here.
