What are tinctures and how do you use them?
A tincture is a concentrated liquid extract made by steeping herbs in alcohol. Typically a tincture is made from the leaf, flower or root of a plant. The medicinal properties of the herb are extracted in the alcohol and the plant constituents become readily available in tincture form. Tinctures are potent, concentrated plant-based remedies. Tinctures are highly concentrated. They are taken under the tongue where they are readily absorbed in the blood stream. Tinctures can also be taken in warm tea or water if they are too strong to be taken directly under the tongue.
Alcohol-based tinctures have a virtually unlimited shelf life if stored in a cool, dark location. Refrigeration is not necessary. Tinctures are easy to travel with making them very convenient remedies. Store your tinctures in a cool, dark place.
All of Sue’s Salves tinctures are crafted with freshly harvested, organically grown herbs grown in Sue’s medicine garden. Grain alcohol is used due to potency and ability to effectively absorb the plant molecules.
General guidelines for tincture dosages. Extract dosages can be measured in drops, dropperfuls, milliliters (ml.), or teaspoons. A dropperful is about 15-20 drops, or 1ml. A teaspoon is roughly equivalent to 5ml. The most commonly used dose for tinctures is 20-40 drops or 1-2 dropperfuls. In general, the more acute a condition, the more frequent the doses. Use a good herbal reference guide for more information.
