Gemmotherapy is herbal medicine made from the buds or shoots of young plants.
How Are Gemmos Prepared?
Gemmotherapy remedies are diluted similar to homeopathic remedies. Gemmos are 1/10th strength in a base of alcohol with glycerin and water. They are prepared in an amber glass bottle with a dropper. If sensitive to alcohol, place the open bottle in 1 inch of slow boiling water for 5 minutes. Cool the bottle before screwing on stopper. The shelf life without alcohol is approximately 3 weeks, as opposed to the standard two years.
Gemmotherapy remedies are easily to administer. They can be taken in a beverage, preferably water, or directly under the tongue. If you are taking more than one, ideally they should be taken separately.
Children usually favor it in a beverage. The dosage for infants is 5 - 8 drops, children 3 to 8 years old, 15-20 drops, and adults and older children, 25-50 drops. The remedies can be used as often as 2-3 times per day during acute illness.
Our gemmotherapy herbs are manufactured by Boiron.
