All botanicals are prepared via a cold process to avoid potential damage heat processing can have on product effectiveness. They are created from organically grown and pesticide-free materials. Each batch undergoes rigorous quality control efforts to assure consistency from batch to batch. The fresh herbs are not dissolved directly with water and glycerin but are extracted first with a specified eluant to yield a concentrate (at a rate of 1:1). Such primary extracts are then further processed (or sometimes purified) by partial or complete removal of the solvent resulting in liquid extract concentrates or into a semi-solid or dry form. Only these concentrates are then dissolved in glycerin and water at a concentration of 20 % concentrate and 80% diluent.
