Herbal tinctures (alcohol extracts) are a convenient and efficient way to prepare, formulate, and administer botanical medicines. Tincture making is both an art and a science, with a wide variety of techniques involved in the process. Come join us as we explore many of these methods while using a number of different TCM plants and fungi. Topics to be covered include: fresh plant tincturing, dry plant maceration, dry plant percolation, fluid extracts, glycerites, liniments, acetums, and hydro-alcohol double extractions. This is an interactive hands-on class so be prepared to get your hands dirty while having a lot of fun! Each student will leave with medicines that s/he helped prepare during class.
