Tincture Making: Preserving Your Medicine
Tinctures, or alcohol extracts, are a popular and convenient way to consume herbs as medicine. They are used to address a variety of ailments, especially acute conditions that require immediate attention and ease of use.
This class will demystify tincture making, which is surprisingly simple and straight-forward. It will also explore the history, uses, advantages and disadvantages of liquid extracts and various forms of preparation. Each participant will make a 5oz of hawthorn berry tincture.
This is an online class - classes will take place via Zoom. Like our in-person classes, we aim to keep the class interactive and hands-on, and students will make an herbal product at home with all supplies provided. More information about supply pickup and Zoom instructions will be provided upon registration.
