I’m always excited to start a new blog but this one is even MORE exciting than usual. Not only am I launching my first ever ebook (yay me), I get to offer it to you folks for FREE!!
Everyone loves a deal… especially a free deal. Am I right? 😉
The World of Herbs
Learning about herbal medicine can feel overwhelming and even a little bit scary when you are first starting out. With so many websites, blogs and books on the subject, we often don’t know where to begin! Making your own medicine, in the form of a tincture, is one of the simplest and most satisfying ways to get your feet wet.
With my Tincture Making Guide you will receive step by step instructions on how to start making your own medicines. From making your own menstruum to how to properly label and store your medicine, there is no detail missing in this free ebook.
Tinctures were one of the very first remedies I was taught about in school while I was studying herbal medicine. To this day they are still my go-to remedy for my herbal clinic. I absolutely love them for their ease, versatility and long shelf life.
As a herbalist I always recommend my clients take their herbs in the form of tincture. They absorb extremely well in the stomach (as opposed to a tablet or capsule) and they are fast acting. In addition, using tinctures as my main medium, I have the ability to use the freshest herbs possible when making my medicine! But thanks to their adaptability, you can easily make tinctures with dried herbs as well.
Short and sweet, my Tincture Making Guide provides you with everything you need to know about tincture making. The first part of the guide discusses what tinctures are and the pros and cons of dried vs. fresh herbs. Then we’ll learn how to make a standard menstruum that can be used for any herb, using store-bought vodka, water and some vegetable glycerine.
Next we’ll learn how to make tinctures using both dried and fresh herbs. I also provide you with information on how to easily press your tinctures and get the most out of your medicine. Finally I provide you with two charts (one for fresh herbs and one for dried herbs) detailing exactly how much herb you need to make your desired amount of tincture.
As an added bonus I’ve also provided you with a list of some of my favourite herbal books so you can get started on your own herbal medicine library.
