In general use, herbs are any plants used for food, flavoring, medicine, or fragrances for their savory or aromatic properties. Culinary use typically distinguishes herbs from spices. An extract is a substance made by extracting a part of a raw material, often by using a solvent such as ethanol or water. Extracts may be sold as tinctures or in powder form. The aromatic principles of many spices, nuts, herbs, fruits, etc., and some flowers, are marketed as extracts, among the best known of true extracts being almond, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, lemon, nutmeg, orange, peppermint, pistachio, rose, spearmint, vanilla, violet, and wintergreen.
Extracts are concentrated liquid herbal preparations. LEAPChem use herbs that are either organic or ethically wildcrafted, which means that they have been harvested in the wild and are replanted the way nature intended. Extraction concentrates the herbal medicine and keeps it fresh for 5 years or more.
