TINCTURES: What's a dropperful? It doesn't fill up the whole glass tube!

People are commonly confused when they read tincture directions suggesting they take a "dropperful" or two of a tincture.  When they squeeze the bulb on the droppertop, they are surprised to see that it fills the glass tube only a little bit of the way.  They try to squeeze harder to try to fill it completely, but it never works.  This is why:

There are many, many different sizes of tincture bottles with droppertops (and glass tubes) that fit each size.  Some are very tiny, and some are very large.  The tiny bottles will have short glass tubes attached to the droppertop, and the large ones will have a very long glass tube.  The squeeze bulb on them all, however, is all the same size.  When you squeeze it, it will draw the same amount of liquid into the glass tube no matter how long or short it may be.  This way, you get a standard dose each time.  Otherwise, you would get only a little – an under-dosage - with the small, short one - or an over-dosage with a large one.

Testimonial

Pam, I just wanted to let you know how grateful I am for you and all you do!  My little girl has lots of trouble sleeping and the non-alcohol Goodnight Combo and Teething Tincture are our saviors! After she was born, I was doing really well emotionally but the last couple of months felt myself falling into depression and heightened anxiety. I do all the usual vitamins and supplements for it, and started taking my placenta (which I’d saved just in case!), but it wasn’t enough and I’ve been struggling so much. I decided to add Happy Day Tincture and Vitex, and within a week started feeling a significant shift. It’s not perfect yet but I feel some hope and like there’s definitely been a turn around.  Thank you for all you do and the products you create with such care. So much love, N.R.
