Passionflower Mother Tincture

Mother tincture (TM) is a liquid preparation, obtained by extracting the fresh drug by

The solvent most used in mother tinctures is a hydroalcoholic solution (water + alcohol) with a variable alcohol content (most often between 60 ° and 80 °) depending on the solubility of the active ingredients to be extracted.

Passionflower mother tincture is an herbal preparation extracted from the leaves and fruits of the plant, which are macerated in a 1:10 ratio in a solution of water and Alcohol. It is an herbal remedy considered useful for the for its hypotensive, vasodilator and antispasmodic properties.

Passionflower Glyceric Macerate: what is it?

In recent years, Mother Tinctures extracted with the Vegetable Glycerin instead of Alcohol, which makes them better in several respects. In addition, since Glycerin is a less potent type of solvent and therefore less extractive than Alcohol, innovative extraction techniques are used, such as the‘Ultrasonic Extraction.



Ultrasonic extraction is an innovative, clean, quick and easy extraction technique that allows to extract the active ingredients from plants and medicinal plants in particular and to make quality phytoextracts, taking advantage of the exclusively mechanical action exerted by the cavitation effect produced by sound waves.



Passionflower Mother Tincture is obtained from the hydro-glyceric maceration of the aerial parts of Passiflora Incarnata, again at a ratio of 1:10, and is an innovative type of Mother Tincture, which, having been obtained by the ultrasonic process, makes it better from several points of view.
