SOLD OUT Total Tummy Tincture (1 oz, 2 oz) for $12, $20 ~ Another gut-related tincture.  It is rare to find an American with sound digestion.  Most of us have chronic inflammation.  If you tend to loose stools and diarrhea, this tincture is for you.  It is also good for digestive irritability due to emotional distress.  The herbal combination is both a nervine and cooling to the digestive tract.  It will gently tighten the tissues of the gut lining while soothing any inflammation.  This tincture is both a remedy for the tummy as much as it is for the heart and mind.  Peach leaves and twigs, Hawthorn leaves and twigs, Privet leaves and twigs, and Rose petals.
