Have you ever prepared to make an herbal tincture and found you were out of your favorite variety of 80-proof or 100-proof tincture-making alcohol?
Did you drive to the nearest liquor store to purchase your tincture-making alcohol of choice so you could make your tincture as planned?
If so, let me save you a trip if you ever find yourself in this situation again. Before you head out the door, you might want to check and see if you have a bottle of high-proof alcohol (the kind you use when making fresh plant tinctures) on hand. If you do, you can easily make do with what you already have.
I’m over on the Herbal Academy blog this week, explaining how to dilute high-proof alcohol so you can make herbal tinctures without losing any of the extraction benefits of your favorite variety of tincture-making alcohol. Don’t worry. It’s easier than you think!
