Tinctures

Dry lavender flowers

A tincture is a liquid extract made by soaking herbs in distilled water and grain alcohol to extract the active ingredients from the herbs. Alcohol is considered an excellent solvent because it is food grade and can extract herbal constituents, such as resins and alkaloids, that are poorly soluble in water or oil. After a number of weeks, the herbs are then strained and removed, leaving behind the liquid. A tincture can be made of a single herb or a combination of herbs.
