How to make it

  • First cut the herbs in small pieces.
  • Fill the herbs into a jar until half of the jar is filled.
  • Pour the spirit into the jar.
  • All the herbs should be covered.
  • Close the jar and put it at a warm place.
  • Let it stand for 10-40 days.
  • Shake it about once a day.
  • After the waiting time the tincture is ready.
  • Now you can filter it.
  • You need a second glass that should be bigger than the first glass.
  • And you need a filtering paper or cloth, I use a coffee filter.
  • Cover the second glass with the filter.
  • Pour the tincture through the filter.
  • The tincture is the liquid going through the filter.
  • When the most liquid is poured out of the jar, you could put the jar with the herbs upside-down on the second jar, to make sure all the tincture flows into the second jar.
  • Put the jars in a cool dry place and let them stand for several hours.
  • Take a dark bottle and a small funnel.
  • Pour the tincture through the funnel into the bottle.
  • Fill as much bottles you need for filling all the tincture.
  • Now all the tincture is filled into the bottles.
  • Label the bottles with content and date so you always know what is inside and how old it is.
