How To:

Mix all the liquid ingredients together in a canning jar by the right dosage. Add dried clove buds – 10g to the mixture. Cover the jar with a lid, then cover the jar with a foil (to keep it from direct sunlight). Put a label with time and date on it. The mixture needs to set for 10 days, shaking the jar every day.

***** 4 teaspoons equals out to about 10 grams.


On the tenth day, strain off the mixture from cloves and pour it into the same bottles that you have poured out extracts/tinctures from.

Take as needed, just a few drops diluted with water may already bring good results.

As a treatment course for Adults: Take 25-30 drops of tonic diluted with about 1/4 cup of water, 1 hour before meals, 3 times a day. Drink more water if needed.

*If this is your first time taking this tonic, it’s a good idea to start taking it gradually from just once a day, at bed time using less drops (just to see how your body will react to it). If you like the results increase the amount of drops to a full amount of 25-30 drops the next night. If you feel fine, take 25-30 drops, twice a day(morning-evening). If felt needed and necessary, you may then start taking it 3 times a day. Start gradually, listening to what the body is telling you. You may not even have to go up to 3 times a day, it all depends on how you feel. Unless you work with a doctor/specialist and he/she tells you the exact amount and for how often it needs to be taken then go off of that prescription.

Duration of a treatment course: The duration of the treatment is individual for each person. Taking into the consideration individual’s nervous-system-state, herb tolerance and the achieved therapeutic effect after taking it.

The average recommended duration of taking the tonic is 2-4 weeks, but it is always best to consult with a specialist before taking it. It is not recommended to use this tonic for a long period of time, longer than 4 weeks due to the ethanol content. If you feel necessary take a 10 days break between the 4-week-course or between the 2-week-course, depends on how long you are taking it. Use it at your own discretion and always consult a specialist before deciding on the duration.

Duration of a treatment course in Children: Children over 12 years of age use as many drops as the age of a child is, diluted in 1/4 cup of water, 3 times a day. The duration of admission in children should be minimal.

*Due to the lack of sufficient data on ethyl alcohol, it is not recommended to use in children under 12 years of age; even though I had a good experience of giving my kids from 1-2 drops, diluted with water, who were younger than 12 when needed. Again, use it at your own discretion or at the discretion of a specialist.

Whats in the bottle:

On the average, there are 930 drops per one bottle with a done Nervous System Tonic mix.

Since store-bought tinctures were not filled as much as I like to fill my empty bottles with a “done” tonic I only get 8 bottles of tonic out of 10 or so.

So, if taking 30 drops, once a day, for 31 days, one bottle should last for up to one month.


Alcohol-based herbal tinctures last for up to 3 years and longer while preserving the freshness and potency of medicinal properties if stored properly.

Store it in a room temperature at about 50F-70F place (in a cupboard) and out of direct sunlight. Refrigeration is not necessary to enhance the properties of it.

…sometimes life is harsh …sometimes it brings on things that are too unexpected and too tragic for the words. It could also be the hormonal changes one may be going through and/or a lack of sleep. Therefore it is nice to have a Nervous System Tonic in the first aid kit for just in case. Stay strong and stay healthy.
