Botanical Extracts

Also called Herbal Extracts. These extracts are obtained from plants.

Plants have been used by humans for centuries for their medicinal and therapeutic  benefits. Various parts of plants that have shown to bear healing and therapeutic properties are harvested and used to make medicine and cosmetics.

One way of harnessing plant potency is by making concentrated tinctures, powders and glycerites out of them.

We have a great selection of extracts at our Nairobi Shop.
