How to Make Your Own Herbal Tinctures?

Making herbal tinctures is a great way to preserve the medicinal properties of plants. Tinctures can be used topically or taken internally, and they are easy to make at home.

The key to making a good tincture is to use high-quality organic alcohol.Ethyl alcohol is the best choice for tinctures, as it is clear, odorless, and tasteless. It is also a potent solvent, so it will extract the maximum amount of medicinal compounds from the plant material.

When choosing alcohol for tinctures, it is important to select one that is at least 80 proofs (40% alcohol by volume). This is because tinctures made with lower-proof alcohols can spoil more easily.
