BOTANICAL SAFETY INFORMATION
Cleansing and restorative for the whole body. Helps to maintain a healthy liver in a variety of circumstances. Excellent protection and support for modern living in a sometimes-polluted world.
Use 5 - 15 drops, 1 - 2 dropperfuls, or as much as a teaspoon at a time. Dose frequency could be 1 - 3 times or several times a day as desired. Generally best to use large, frequent doses in acute situations. When more comfort is achieved or the situation is less severe, doses can be smaller and less frequent. Dose recommendations are for adults. For a child, adjust the dose according to weight. For example, if a child weighs approximately half what an adult weighs, give half of any of the above dose suggestions.
