  3. Hi Sandy and Bev. Sorry, I don’t get here very often anymore, Wild Stories is mostly active on Facebook (www.facebook.com/wildstories ) or on the original blog http://www.weedyconnection.com/blog.

    To make a tincture you need the highest alcohol content spirit you can find unflavoured. Overseas you can buy 95% ethilic alcohol from the supermarket, here in Australia you can only find 50% vodka. THis is why some people distill their own spirit for their tinctures, as it is too expensive and not very good quality. Anyway, if you use the 50% vodka it will last less but would still work. Just make smaller batches and restock every two years.
    Directions:
    If using fresh material wash and dry fully before using, try to minimize the moisture in the tincture.
    Fill a jar with plant material, chop it and squish it in. Fill with spirit making sure there is no air bubble. Keep in a dark place for 2-6 weeks (there more you keep it the more properties gets infused in the liquid). Strain it and that’s it.
    Home-made tinctures are variable on properties. To have more reliable tinctures you need to use good quality plants.
    Hope this help, come to visit us on facebook>>
