Contains Organic Ginkgo Biloba leaf in alcohol.
Native to China, the ginkgo tree is beautiful and unique, both aesthetically and biologically. Having lived for over 225 million years, the ginkgo is one of the oldest known species on the planet. The Ginkgo I use is grown organically in the USA. After the bombing at Hiroshima in World War 2, surveyors examined the effect of the blast on local plant populations. Throughout the devastation, six ginkgo trees survived the bombing, the closest of which still lives less than 1200 meters from the epicenter.
