One the many tinctures I've made.
It's really easy to make, that's the thing I love about tinctures.
I use 1 to 5 ratio with vodka in a pint jar. I then wait 5-6 weeks before decanting, making sure I give it a good shake every day. I use a cheesecloth when decanting, my husband gives it a good squeeze (he's much stronger than me). I get about 6 small bottles from it which lasts me about 6 weeks, perfect timing before decanting my next one :)
It's a very straightforward process which I really enjoy. It's also really fulfilling making my own medicine for my own health and wellbeing.
