A great way to administer the healing power of plants is through herbal tinctures. Tinctures are convenient, easy to take, have an extended shelf life, and hold a remarkable ability to dissolve and preserve the plant’s active therapeutic constituents. This method of healing medicine was passed on by our ancestors who have used them for thousands of years with great success.
What is a tincture?
Tinctures are also called herbal extracts or liquid herbal extracts. They are concentrated herbal preparations where the medicinal qualities of an herb are extracted into a liquid form. The most common liquids used for the extraction process are pure alcohol, a combination of water and alcohol, glycerin, wine, or apple cider vinegar. Some tinctures are made from a single herb, while others are a combination of several herbs. Alcohol tinctures have the longest shelf life and will last for several years.
