Announcement    Welcome to my herbal shop=)!!! After every initial order, you will get a 10% off, never expires, COUPON code! All items ship within 24 hours of purchase!!

***Contact me if you would like to mix the tinctures/glycerites/combined extracts/oil infusions together. I will do up to 3 different kinds in a bottle. No additional charge. I can always do custom orders. Please message if you want larger quantities or a gift set order customized & I'll be happy to accommodate if possible 💚🌿💚🌿!!!!***

Here you'll find Herbal Extracts: Tinctures (organic vodka, Everclear & tea infusion based), Glycerites (organic vegetable glycerin & spring water based), Tincturites (organic vodka, spring water & organic vegetable glycerin), Vinegar Tinctures (Organic apple cider vinegar & vodka), Oxymels (Organic A.C. vinegar & honey) & Oil Infusions (botanical skincare oils which are infused in Organic Sunflower Oil) that I use to craft salves and lip balms. They are also available as just the base oils which are superb for adding essential oils to or using as is on hair, skin & nails!!

As summer is winding down I am straining extracts weekly & crafting more salves & skincare products. Most of my inventory is newly strained Tinctures & Glycerites just crafted within the past couple of months 6/2020-present. I have very potent, well-rounded tinctures this year since adding a bit of Everclear to the process & topping each off with a spring water tea infusion. This is a process where I use the Marc(leftover plant material) & some fresh herbs to make a simmering tea, let it sit for a few hours, cool & then add this to the tincture. This balances the taste & adds more beneficial nutrients & minerals to each handmade, small batch tincture 🤲🌿💚!!

**Please continue reading for information on my journey, products, and shop!!

Thank you so much for entrusting me with your herbal needs! I hope you find what your are looking for and please message me with any questions.

*****Just as WORDS OF ADVICE, I feel it is best to initially take each extract individually for a week at a time to be able to carefully evaluate if there are any adverse reactions that may occur. Once evaluated, other tinctures/glycerites can be added to the regimen mixed in water; cool, warm, or hot. I now offer the ability to mix extracts together but will not do more than 3 at a time. Always take your herbs in liquid to prevent throat/mouth irritation. To dissipate the alcohol from the tincture, add it to hot water and let sit for 5-10 minutes before sipping!! Glycerin can irritate the bowels so if adverse reactions occur (cramping, diarrhea or other pain), stop immediately if you do not tolerate it.

I have been researching and learning more about solvents (the liquid base) and how they each have unique ways of pulling out different constituents/vitamins/minerals from the herbs. This led me to offering more MIXED MENSTRUUM HERBAL EXTRACTS as well as creating a new process, discussed above, for crafting tinctures.

***Please read all listings thoroughly for information regarding the herbal extracts and suggested usages.

Message me with any questions so I can help guide you to resources and give you my opinions/advice based on personal knowledge and personal use of most of the products. (backyardherbalist@outlook.com)

***Always incorporate herbal extracts into your health care routine carefully to be sure of no adverse reactions, and always be sure if you are on any medications to consult your doctor before taking herbs!! Like some medications and foods, they can have adverse reactions when combined with the wrong things.***

Herbalism is my passion, and I have connected; through starting plants, tending and harvesting them, with every herb I use to make my herbal extracts. They are made in small batches, by me, from mostly herbs in my garden that I have grown from seed. If I did wild harvest the herbs it will be indicated in the listing. I make sure to wild harvest away from roadways and in wild/natural areas without chance of pesticides/herbicides being used.

****All my garden plants are grown completely without pesticides/herbicides and all added fertilizer/soil is organic. How do I do this??? I harvest daily, obsessively, & visit my garden 2-3 times a day to observe my plants and combat pests the old fashioned way; with my fingers or by cutting off affected areas of the plants!


****I also reuse bottles & boxes, & use organic/unbleached/reusable supplies as often as possible. This is as much about the environment as it is about health, wellness, & family. I am as conscientious, as I monetarily can be, because this is for posterity!****


My personal testimony for what herbal tinctures have done for me....

The following blog post link will bring you to a thorough explanation of my own personal health issues & my experience with incorporating herbs into my daily preventative health routine: https://aspiringherbalist.com/2018/10/17/gin-soaked-raisins-preventativehealth-herbalbenefits/

"After incorporating tinctures into my daily wellness routine, the results I've experienced are: My skin heals much faster(over night) & breaks out way less than it has in 15+ years; my immune system seems much stronger & I was healthier than anyone else in my immediate family this past year (especially during flu season); the duration and severity of my periods has lessened more effectively than it ever did trying birth control & without adverse side-effects; my social anxiety/stress/PMS symptoms have substantially subsided & I feel much more in control of my highs/lows than ever before without unwanted adverse symptoms; as well as my IBS symptoms (stomach aches/cramps/diarrhea/rushing to the bathroom) have significantly lessened!! It's been an amazing transformation & relief to finally find something that is naturally helping my body work to its full potential!" ~Anne

Personal Legend of a Stay at Home Mom Herbalist

Thank you for visiting my shop and helping me to make my dream as an herbalist come true! Please take a peek at my blog: https://aspiringherbalist.com/ to see my personal journey with discovering herbalism, my love of gardening, and how it all involves my family & our desire to treat the environment and our bodies with care and conscientiousness.

My gardening began when my daughter was 4. It was my way of trying to be healthier, environmentally conscious, and raise her with respect for the food she eats and the natural world around her that provides it. That garden is now at our old house with someone else, but since then I have dug 4 more with my own two hands, fenced, designed, and started seeds for 3 years now; my garden is 80% grown by me from seed to harvest. Then starting this year, I have transitioned to mostly growing herbs.

Herbs became more of an interest for me after being gifted some from a dear friend. She was kind enough--as she prepared to leave her beautiful herb garden behind that she had grown to love over years and years of nurturing it--to dig up and gift me some transplants from it. It was like giving me her babies, so I could continue to love and enjoy them like she had.

As a result, this brought more herbs into my backyard, sparked my interest to research extensively about their benefits, and has led me to my current store opening. After growing, harvesting, drying, chopping & extracting all while growing a deep relationship with a variety of herbs; I want to share their benefits with others!

Every tincture is made in small batches by me. I harvest the herbs, mostly from my backyard, chop them up, cover them in menstruum; organic vodka, or distilled water & vegetable glycerin), cover them with parchment paper (dated & labeled), transfer them to a dark location in my basement, shake daily for 4-6 weeks, strain, and bottle them individually.

For my skincare oils, I hand dry the herbs using the top of my LED lights and then transfer them to glass jars & cover them in organic Olive Oil. After sitting in a south facing window for a month, swirling every few days, I strain them; just like the other extracts, and transfer them to amber glass bottles with droppers.

This process is not just something that is done by me but is LOVED by me! This is truly my "personal legend" (The Alchemist by: Paulo Coelho); the thing that fulfills me and makes my heart fill with joy and satisfaction. It is my dream to grow plants & make them into a healing substance for others to use as preventative health care; all while still being home with my family.

My family consists of my husband and 2 children. My children are 5 and 12 and mean the world to me. My father died when I was 15 and this has made me choose my path in life based on the philosophy that: "Life is too short so spend it with the ones you love!" This has forced my husband and I to make many sacrifices, but it is all for the sake of spending as much time together as possible, while we are able to.

My husband, Justin, runs his own online resale/antique business: https://www.ebay.com/usr/broadwayexchangeco,
and I have been staying home with our son and working on teaching myself all about herbalism, handcrafting extracts, & gardening while volunteering, every Wednesday, at my children's school & staying active in the community.

As far as herbal studies go; I have read many books & online directories as well as taken the Materia Medica & Introductory Course at https://theherbalacademy.com/ (Herbal Academy).
This has included documenting as much of this journey as I can on my blog: https://aspiringherbalist.com/
