TINCTURES
Important Notice

The new Herbal Directive comes into force at Midnight on the 30th of April 2011 at which point I will no longer be able to stock Herbal Tinctures. Those still in stock may be sold whilst stocks last during a transitional period however no new stocks will be made and ultimately when stocks run out, they will be deleted from this site.


Herbal Tinctures are a convenient and easy way to take a herbal remedy. The volatile plant materials have already been extracted into a water and alcohol base and you simply add between 2 and 5 mls of the tincture to water or fruit juice or even milk, and drink. If you put the tincture into a hot drink then the alcohol will evaporate speedily. Herbal tinctures are made by steeping the plant material into a mixture of alcohol and water and the mixture will typically be left between 1 and 6 weeks at room temperature

The alcohol content which is usually, but not always, derived from sugar beet, serves to dissolve the volatile oils and active compounds from the plant material which then, after straining, is bottled and ready to use. Some plant material has active compounds which are only best dissolved in an alcohol base. Black Cohosh, for instance, is often used as a tea yet the most active compounds in Black Cohosh are ONLY dissolvable in alcohol. In this instance a tincture of Black Cohosh is far superior than a tea made from the plant. Tinctures are usually between a ratio of 1 part herb to 3 parts liquid (1:3) to 1 part herb to 5 parts liquid (1:5) in anywhere between 25% to 60% alcohol.
