An herbal extract is a solution of herbs and alcohol. The dried or fresh herbs are combined with alcohol, then the solid matter is removed leaving only the oils of the herbs mixed with the alcohol. For example, an extract made vanilla and alcohol would be called "vanilla extract."

Most commercially sold extracts have an herb to alcohol ratio printed on the label. When dry herbs are used toi make the extract, the ratio is commonly 1 part dried plant to 4 liquid (alcohol and water solution). When fresh herbs are used the most common ratio is 1:1. Herbal extracts are commonly used for flavoring in baking and cooking, as in vanilla or peppermint extract.
Organic production fosters cycling of resources, promote ecological balance, and conserve biodiversity. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's National Organic Program (NOP) develops, implements, and administers national production, handling, and labeling standards. Organic farming excludes or strictly limits the use of manufactured fertilizers, pesticides (which include herbicides, insecticides and fungicides), plant growth regulators such as hormones, livestock antibiotics, food additives, and genetically modified organisms.
