Not all herbal tinctures have an unpleasant taste, but some do. This is a result of the herbs themselves, which can have a sharp, robust flavor. Sometimes the best way to take the recommended dose of a tincture is to put the drops in a bit of water and gulp the whole thing down quickly. In fact, the taste of a tincture is an important factor in its overall effectiveness, as the body learns to associate the taste with the healing effects specific to the remedy. It does not take long for the body to register a remedy's taste, which in turn triggers a response in the body, predisposing it and making it receptive to the positive healing properties of the remedy, whether it be a single herb or a synergistic combination of herbs. Understanding this process may make taking tinctures a little easier to get used to! A cup of herbal tea is a very pleasant way to take a herbal tincture. For example, in order to enjoy the benefits of a herbal tea, a person must often consume rather a lot of it, sometimes five or six cups! However, a dose of Lemon Balm Single Tincture in a cup of lemon balm tea boosts the effectiveness of the tea.
