About Solomon's Seal Tincture: Solomon's Seal is a beautiful plant that gestures with an arch of bell-shaped white flowers along the spine of the stems. We tincture the roots fresh in the autumn, and the result is one of the highest quality Solomon's Seal tinctures on the market. Solomon's Seal is a premier plant for supporting the various connective tissues throughout the body and strengthening muscles, tendons, joints, and bones. The plant moistens and soothes mucous membranes with a special affinity for the respiratory, digestive, and generative systems. A good ally to support a healthy menopausal transition.
Solomon's Seal promotes flexibility and ease of movement in the musculoskeletal system, making it a good choice for older folks and for anyone who exerts their physical body regularly with work, play, and exercise. Avena's tincture supports overall healthy terrain and tissue growth, and may be taken both internally and used topically as a ready-to-go liniment.
Garden Notes: Each May, we look forward to watching the ruby-throated hummingbirds as they return to Avena's Sanctuary gardens, drinking the nectar of the Solomon's Seal flowers after their long migrating journey north.
