I am new to tincturing herbs and I plan on making fresh ones soon....about 6 different herbs/formulas....most will also include the roots...
I have a question for you please if I may ask?
Instead of putting in the roots chopped with the fresh leaves... does it make any sense if I take the whole plant and grind it in a vita mix? then cover with alcohol?
so in essence will breaking down the plant part make a stronger and "better" tincture?
thanks for your help,
Susun discussed your question during a recent radio show. I've included the link below in case you missed it. Many thanks ...
If you are interested in more about what Susun discusses in her approach to making medicines, the CD set she referred to is here:
She also offers a free online course that goes into some of the details of making tinctures, etc.
