Suggested Use

The recommended dosage, or suggested use, depends on the age, weight, and sensitivity of each individual. Some individuals may find they need less than the suggested use on the label. For short term use, herbal extracts can be taken every 1-3 hours. For general, ongoing wellness support, extracts can be taken 2-4 times per day.

If taking an herbal extract long term, we recommend taking a week-long break every six months and checking in about long term use with your herbalist or holistic practitioner.

Our typical suggested use for herbal extracts is:

Adult: 40 drops (2 mL) mixed in 1-2 ounces of water.

Child: 1 drop/5 pounds of body weight mixed in 1-2 ounces of water or sugar-free juice. As a general guideline for children, we use Clark's Rule: Divide the child's weight (in pounds) by 150. This gives you the fraction of the adult dose appropriate to give a child. Please consult with your herbalist or holistic practitioner before giving extracts to a child, as some are too strong for children.

Pets: Please consult with your veterinarian. Usually 1 drop of a liquid extract or glycerite for every 5 lbs of body weight.
