The Most Popular and Effective Preparations Every Medicine Maker Needs To Know
Tinctures and extractions are the classic home medicine preparations and are often the first methods of extracting an herb’s constituents that new herbalists learn to make.
And for good reason!
They are simple to make, super-concentrated (a little goes a long way), easy to dose, and when stored properly they have an incredible shelf-life.
By using alcohol, glycerin, or vinegar (and knowing how to pair these solvents with specific herbs), you will be able to extract a greater spectrum of the whole plant and preserve your medicine for much longer than any other preparations provide.
The Tinctures, Glycerites, and Vinegars Kit provides you with almost everything you need to make herbal tinctures, glycerites, and vinegars, so you too can confidently make these versatile, and effective medicines at home. (You will need to purchase your alcohol, glycerin, and/or vinegar locally as we cannot ship these).
Kit Contents: Cold Away Blend (Elder, Peppermint, Yarrow), Amber Bottle, Dropper, Product Label, Straining Cloth, and Gloves. PLUS! Bonus Training: Lesson 4: Tinctures, Glycerites, and Vinegars with Dr. Patrick Jones, Digital video, and Transcript.
If you are a budding, new medicine maker – or you’ve been making your family’s medicine for years - creating your own tinctures, glycerites, and vinegars has never been easier!
Herbs can be powerful medicine. Making teas, using herbs in cooking, and adding them to salads are simple ways to increase your herbal intake at home. But, sometimes drinking herbal tea is not sufficient to extract all the beneficial plant properties.
Additionally, some plants lose their potency quickly after being dried, and many plants simply taste too much like medicine to make them a regular part of our cooking or drinking habits.
For all of those reasons and more, tinctures can be a wonderful way to take advantage of the powerful benefits of plant-based medicines in a concentrated form at home!

Love these kits!
I've got about all of these kits and I've really enjoyed them all. I actually purchased them before I did the Making Herbal Medicine course and it was really great to have them for some hands on experience while I was taking it. I've been very happy with everything I've purchased from The Grow Network!
