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.
