The term elixir probably originated in Arabia and denotes a sweetened, aromatic, alchemically combined solution of alcohol and water that containing or being used as a vehicle for medicinal substances. However, the process of creating liquid botanical preparations may be as old as humanity. At Qori Inti Amazonian Herbals, we prefer to use liquid as the medium of transporting botanical information to the body/mind/spirit paradigm. Our herbal elixirs allow one to taste the herb fully, and taste is considered by Ayurveda to be an important part of the healing process. Taste starts the digestive process and sends signals to the body as to what to expect, already initiating the intelligence of your body’s own inner pharmacy. In addition, the human body is comprised of 70% water, so adding one aqueous solution to another naturally engenders better solubility and synergy between us and the plants. Furthermore, powdered or capsulated botanicals seem to lack the life force of their fresh, living counterparts. It is our intention and goal to transmute the living essence of the Amazonian wilderness through our botanical products. All Qori Inti elixirs are processed from freshly gathered plants that have been sustainably wild-harvested from the Peruvian Amazon. Our elixirs are dual and sometimes triple extracted in various menstruums. The resulting fractions are then combined synergistically through a time intensive process to yield the most complete, holistic and full spectrum action of our wildcrafted botanicals. Our elixirs are available in 50 ml. and 500 ml. refill sizes. We package our 50 ml. elixirs in violet Miron glass bottles, which function as a form of natural preservation.
