FAQ

Are your products safe?

At Salt Creek Apothecary, we make products that are safe and delicious.  In our 'Wild' and 'Tonic' lines we steer clear of herbs that are widely contraindicated.  If you have specific medical concerns, consult your doctor, a holistic practitioner, or schedule an appointment with Dr. Acesta ND.  Please note the guideline below for pregnancy and nursing and be aware that some products contain alcohol.  See Disclaimer.

Are Salt Creek Apothecary products safe for pregnant or nursing women?

Pregnant and nursing women should consult with a physician or midwife prior to using Salt Creek Apothecary products.  Not all herbs are safe to consume during pregnancy.

My product looks different than the last time I purchased it, why?

All Salt Creek Apothecary products are made by hand in small batches, as a result there may be some variation from batch to batch.   Each product is formulated consistently but sometimes source ingredients may be a different color or more or less aromatic, etc.  Embrace and enjoy the subtle differences you may encounter between batches. 

Why is there alcohol in some of your products? Do you make any alcohol-free products?

Alcohol is one of the best ways to extract and preserve herbs. We use organic non-gmo cane alcohol for most herbal extracts and brandy for herbal elixirs (herbal extracts with honey added).  Alcohol extraction is a traditional method of making preserving herbs and gives products a longer shelf-life.   Salt Creek Apothecary does make products without alcohol.  Herbal glycerites are herbs extracted in non-gmo vegetable glycerin, Autumn and Spring Tonics are both made from organic raw unfiltered apple cider vinegar. Tisanes are herbal teas which can be steeped for 10-15 minutes for a delicious cup or up to 2 hours for a more medicinal effect.  Herbal honeys are an extraordinary way to consume a variety of herbs.  Salt Creek Apothecary also carries lip butters, topical oils and balms, herbal infused cold-process soap and herbal infused aromatherapy serums.
