Welcome to the online home of Tincture & Tonic apothecary.
We are many things… A community hub of learning, a herbal apothecary of the past, a clinic where one may visit a professional herbalist in a formal clinic room. We are herbalists, first and foremost, and this is our focus and speciality.
Our retail space features products made by our own hands using well practiced reciepes that have been passed down and perfected by a Master Herbalist. Our counter is minded by expereinced clinical herbalists who can help compound custom tea and tincture formulae as determined for your needs. We are skilled in the old ways of using plants as medicine and combine it with the new knowledge of science. We have many bulk herbs, tinctures, pre-made teas and salves, soaps, essential oils and much more. Most of our bulk herbs are organic and wildcrafted when it is possible we work with local wildcrafters and providers of herbs.

Dee Gauthier, RH
I love the knowledge of the science of herbal medicine along with the more esoteric uses the herbs have to offer. 10 years of study under the most prestigous herbal practitioners has inspired me to follow my path and pursue healing with our plant allies.

Matthew Urbanski, RH
With a background of qi-gong and meditation, I studied Medical Herbalism under Diane Kent and gained a solid foundation for medical science regarding anatomy, physiology, plant materia medica, and pharmacokinetics/dynamics. My passion is to continue the pursuit for knowledge, and to share what I have learned.
