How to Make a Tincture
How to Make a Tincture: It does not matter what size jar you use as long as the top one quarter is liquid. Dry herbs lose their potency within a year. Fresh herbs rot soon after harvest. Tinctures preserve and extract the medicinal properties of an herb in an alcoholic extract, and can last more than a hundred years. You can purchase tinctures, or you can make your own. They are very easy to make.
