Multi-Purpose Calendula Herbal Tincture
Another way to make tinctures is to use oils. Many times a single herb is all that is necessary to use in preparing a home remedy. Calendula is one that serves many purposes and is handy to keep around. This is one that you will want to have in your herbal medicine chest. Use this to treat sores and chapped skin, to clean out wounds and cuts. Calendula helps stop bleeding so it can be used as a styptic.
Add 1 cup of calendula flower petals to 2 cups of olive oil. Allow to stand in a warm place for 2 weeks. Strain and add several drops of tincture of benzoin. Store in a sterile bottle. The tincture of benzoin keeps the herbal mixture bacteria-free and enables you to keep it for long periods of time. After you have started using your own tinctures, it will surprise you how often you will turn to them when needed.
