Revel Edit: Tinctures from WILE

Tinctures are highly concentrated liquid supplements.

Even the act of sitting still to hold the liquid under your tongue is a welcome mini-break from the mental buzz of your workday. 

We were recently offered the opportunity to try a line of tinctures from our friends at Wile and we said yes! But before we got started we had a few questions.

Our Questions: 

What is a tincture? 

Tinctures are highly concentrated liquid supplements. Wile's contain beneficial herbs, adaptogens, and plant ingredients, distilled and designed to provide quick natural relief of stress symptoms. 

How do you take a tincture? 

Tinctures are best absorbed sublingually, but you can also add them to a drink or smoothie. 

What does ‘sublingually’ mean? 

Fill up a dropper and squeeze it under your tongue. 

Why does that work best?

Supplement pills and gummies go through the stomach and pass through the liver. Under the tongue, tinctures can absorb fast into your bloodstream. 

Do all tinctures include cannabis? 

Definitely not. Wile’s line is THC and CBD-free. 

When should we take Wile tinctures? 

As needed! They're great for on-the-go - keep in your handbag, laptop bag, next to your desk, or even your car. They can go wherever stress may trigger you.

You can make your tincture a regularly scheduled break during stressful times. Add to a daily habit, like making coffee. Institute a mindful moment before you take lunch. This can give you a second to tune in. This will also create a happy habit loop in your brain, using the power of neurological pathways to remind you that you’re taking care of you. Double the positive power!

The Verdict:

While some people may find the taste to be a bit “botanical,” we're into it!
