Penny’s Naturals is the brainchild and love of Tommy Copeland and Penny Calcina. It began with a request. Penny had been using only pure, natural soaps for many years. Sensitive to the smell and feel of artificial colors and fragrance, she asked Tommy to convert to a pure laundry detergent that would not leave those smells and residue on clothing.

💥Easy herbalism at home DIY💥 Tinctures are potent herbal extracts, that practically make themselves! They are absorbed the quickest into the body, with the most potent effects over capsules and can be easier to dose than tea🔥🧪 ⚡️It only takes 4 minutes for a tincture to begin to take effect, compare that with a capsule that can take several hours, with a much more weakened potency⚡️ ✨TINCTURE BASICS✨ -1 tight sealing mason jar -dried herb of choice -organic 50% grain alcohol 💥 Fill the mason jar halfway with herbs, fill up the rest with alcohol, be sure to cover plants completely. Let sit in a dark place for one month, giving it a shake every day, so herbs are extracted evenly. After 4 weeks, strain the herb out, and bottle your potion. Start low with your dosing and add up as needed! (Be sure to research your herb for specific contraindications) Et voila!🦋 Minimal effort, maximum return👌 📷via Mountain Rose Herbs ...
