Herbal Tinctures & Their Uses
with Debra E Mercier
Tinctures are concentrated extracts of herbs made with water and alcohol. We will discuss water to alcohol ratios for specific herbs according to herbal pharmacopeia to the simples of making extracts at home. Vinegar and glycerol based tinctures, syrups and elixirs and when to use an extract opposed to a tea will also be covered. We will learn to make a tincture in class with organic vinegar and will strain a vinegar extract as well. Tuition includes materials.
