I thought that I would write down different ways to turn herbs into medicine. Thought I would start out with TINCTURES as they are my favorite, because they will last forever if properly stored. 1) First you want herbs that are of good quality either learn to harrvest them yourself (preferable), or buy them from someone that knows what they are doing. 2) Once you have the herbs put them into a jar with a lid. I use mason jars because they are handy and we have lots of them. 3) Next get a cheap vodka and pour enough in the jar to cover the herbs. 4) Put the lid on tight and shake it vigoursily. 5) Store in a warm dark place. 6) For at least the 2 weeks take the jar out and shake well 2-3 times a day. You can leave it longer it will just get stronger. 7) Strain the herbs out and the liquid into a jar with a tight lid. Then put the jar into a dark warm area again. It will stay good forever stored liked this. OGM P.S. As I have time I will put other ways of turning herbs into medicines on this thread.
