This is a kid-friendly (and safe!) formula- we formulate our kid-friendly tincture line with alcohol and glycerin, rather than alcohol and water. This makes the formula last longer in the system as well as tasting sweet, which is what is all the rage with kids these days. We still use the alcohol in our kid tinctures. Why? Because glycerin alone does not get out all the medicine of the plant! Think of a glycerin extract as a well preserved tea. Tinctures are stronger and you need less. And they are portable!
Bummertum is a remedy that comes in 1 oz. amber dropper bottles, about 30 doses.
(Real) Ingredients: Cane Alcohol (GF), Kosher Vegetable Glycerin*, Catnip*, Marshmallow root*, Fennel seed* (*organic)
We use real pronounceable ingredients that are ethically sourced and high quality for your product.
We either grow or work with local growers to source for our formulas. This supports the local economy, gives us the most potent plants, & reduces
reliance upon fossil fuels.
We make products from herbs that will grow here over herbs from the Amazon, China, or Africa. Oftentimes, those trendy herbs are taken in an unsustainable way & local people do not have access to their native medicines any longer. Bioregional herbalism is where it's at!

Herbal remedies, supplements, and tonics are fundamentally different
from pharmaceuticals (and we like it that way). They are designed to
restore your body and its systems to homeostasis gently- working with
We post basic dosage guidelines, but keep in mind if you have more body mass or a faster metabolism than the average bear, you may need to take a larger dose than indicated. If there are hard-and-fast limitations on how often you can take the product, it will
be listed on the package. Most can be used up to six times daily
without problems (but we doubt that you would need to do that).
Remember, there are no "magic bullets" in life, and any product (herbal, pharmaceutical, or otherwise) claiming 100% success without knowing you, your constitution, and your lifestyle is lying and trying to get into
your wallet. Often, herbalists (and MDs) need to try several products
before we find the one that works for your unique biochemistry.
Feel free to email us if the product didn't quite do the job, we can
recommend another that could do the trick. We are blessed with many
plants that have the same action in the body- and often it's just a
matter of finding the right one for you.
