Tinctures:  An Easier Alternative

Herbal tinctures are an easy option to consider when it comes to consuming herbs (culinary and medicinal).  Herbal teas are steeped in hot water with each cup consumed while tinctures soaked in alcohol (vodka, rum or a grain alcohol), created one time to last for months and can be added to teas and coffees.  It is best to make them with fresh herb leaves directly from a garden when the oils are extracted for high potentency which results in receiving the most medicine.  Tinctures can be made with any healing herb such as mint, chamomile or valerian root, so creating a medicinal herb garden to create a variety of options is something to consider.  Herbal tinctures are an alternative way to consumer herbs.
