Making Herbal Tinctures 101

Dawnfire Sanctuary, 5655 Main St, Williamsville, NY.

Tinctures are a convenient way to extract and preserve medicinal herbs. Using basic ratios and principles, we can easily make quality herbal remedies at home.

In this workshop, Community herbalist Sarah Sorci of Sweet Flag Herbs will share standard rules for tincture making, and give a brief history of the process. Samples will illustrate the differences between using fresh and dried plant material and other variations.

Each participant will select from several organic dried herbs to craft their own tincture. You will take home the supplies needed to prepare, store, and properly dose your tincture (mason jar, dried herbs, cheese cloth, dropper bottle, labels). Just add vodka when you get home.

To sign up, contact Sarah Sorci, Community Herbalist.
