Step to true tinctures - Dragon Drops
Dragon Herbs tinctures, commonly referred to as “Dragon Drops,” are alcohol-and-water extracts of the highest quality tonic herbs in the world. These highly concentrated fluid extracts are available in 2 ounce glass dropper bottles with glass droppers. Dragon Drops formulations are developed by Master Herbalist Ron Teeguarden. We buy our herbs directly from herb farmers and herb hunters.
There are two primary natural solvents in this world: water and alcohol. The plants’ active compounds are usually either water-soluble or alcohol-soluble. The best full spectrum extraction method is to extract plants using both water and alcohol. That is how Dragon Drops are made.
Our Dragon Drops formulations go through 2 rounds of low temperature water extraction and 1 round of alcohol extraction. The extracted materials from all 3 rounds (water and alcohol) are then combined and condensed by removing majority of the solvents, reducing the volume by 90-95%. Essential oils evaporated during the extraction are trapped in oil traps and added back to the extracts. What you receive in our tinctures are therefore the essence of the essence. It has the best of both worlds: water-soluble compounds AND alcohol-soluble compounds.
The alcohol extraction equipment is expensive and its process has to be carefully controlled due to the combustibility of alcohol. Most companies do not use heat in their tincture production so they do not have to invest in high tech equipment upfront and they can keep the ongoing operating costs low. This is why most tinctures on the market are, in reality, infusions. In their low tech procedure, dry herbs are soaked in 20-90% alcohol then the infused solvent is sold. That is it. No heat, no cooking, no condensing. Only soaking. These end products sold in tincture form are practically solvents infused with herbs.
Infusions are NOT extracts. You can literally see and taste the difference.
