We talked about how to make herbal teas yesterday, and today we are looking at how to make herbal tinctures....
Herbal tinctures are made by distilling herbs in alcohol , vinegar or glycerine. The most strongest, most potent method of making tinctures is accomplished by using 1 part herb to 3 - 4 parts pure grain alcohol, mixed with equal parts of distilled water. Place the mixture in a glass container and let set in a darkened area for 30 days or so. Start on the new moon and finish on a full moon. Shake the tincture everyday. In the last day put the mixture in the sun for at least 4 hours on sunlight. If there is no sunshine in one day, wait until there is, or live this step out. Now you are ready to bottle your tincture. Use some sort of a press to squeeze this distilled mixture into pure liquid. Take one full dropper 3 - 6 times a day.
Herbs should be taken on empty stomach, 15 - 20 mins before eating.
You can burn off the alcohol from the tincture by warming the water that you add the tincture and let it sit for 10 min.
For best results in using the herbs ,your food should be natural like fresh fruits, vegetables, fresh made juices and smoothies.
Never fear nature or its products. Simply learn what others have been using and doing for hundreds of thousands of years.
For those of you who do not have time to make your own herbal tinctures, you can always order Dr Robert morse botanical formulas in tinctures by visiting our website www.herbsfordetox.com
