Tinctures, herbs steeped in alcohol or vinegar, are one of the most commonly used forms of herbal medicine. This workshop covers the two common ways to make tinctures at home, folkloric and weight-to-volume. We will also discuss important tropics related to tincturing including solubility, alcohol concentration, drop-testing, and dosage. Participants will make an alcohol tincture and a vinegar tincture to take home.
