Making Herbal Tinctures 101

beHealthy Institute, Main St, Hamburg
Cost: $34 Includes choice of 2 oz dried herbs for tincture-making at home.

Alcohol-based tinctures are a convenient way to extract and preserve medicinal herbs. Buying them at the store can be expensive, but we can easily make high quality herbal remedies at home. In this workshop, Community herbalist Sarah Sorci of Sweet Flag Herbs will share standard rules and ratios for tincture making, and give a brief history of the process. Samples and demonstrations will illustrate the differences between using fresh and dried plant material, as well as other variations. Participants will leave with the confidence to prepare herbal tinctures independently.

Pre-registration required. Visit the beHealthy workshop webpage to sign up.
