Tincture Making Party

Today I went to a tincture making party.  A tincture is an herbal extract.  They are more potent than an herbal tea, so you don’t have to take as much (which I like, since I don’t care that much for tea).  A lady from our church bought enough herbs for everyone who signed up to make several different tinctures and teas.  Then we got together and made the tinctures, teas, and a syrup.  All the herbal preparations are for cold and flu symptoms.  Perfect timing, as I am coming down with a cold. 🙂  The party was so fun, and I hope we’ll do another.

All the recipes we used can be found either in Be Your Own Doctor by Rachel Weaver or Rosemary Gladstar’s Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health.
