HOW TO MEASURE OUR TINCTURES:
Suggested doses are given in drops. However, for easy dosing, you may want to use the guidelines below:
Droppers: If a dropper were immersed in a tincture bottle and the bulb squeezed twice, the number of drops in the pipette for most given tinctures will be approximately 30 drops.
Note: These are only averages. More viscous (thicker) tinctures will produce fewer, and bigger, drops.
Teaspoons: There are approximately 120 drops in 1 teaspoon (approximately 4 droppersful).

Inula conyzae, I. helenium
Asteraceae (Daisy Family)
The species name helenium is said to be a reference to Helen of Troy, who was supposedly collecting elecampane when Paris captured her. The common name elecampane is derived from the Latin campana, "of the field."
Range of Appearance
Elecampane is a perennial native to Europe and northern Asia; it can be found growing in ditches and other waste places and reaches a height of between 3 and 8 feet. The upper leaves are large, toothed, and ovate and clasp the stem. The lower leaves are stalked. The entire plant has a downy quality. The ray flowers are solitary, large, and golden yellow.
