A tincture is nothing more than a highly concentrated liquid extract of herbs. A tincture can be applied externally or taken internally. The kind of herbs you choose to put in your tinctures depends upon what conditions you need to heal. For example, you would make a tincture of comfrey root to heal and clean sores, because comfrey has pain-killing properties and it also aids in cell rejuvenation. If you are choosing herbs to use in a tincture that will be taken orally, be careful to choose "safe" herbs, ones that you know you can safely ingest.
How to Make Your Own Tincture
Add 1/2 cup of the herb of your choice to 2 cups of alcohol. You can use vodka, rum, gin, or glycerin. The alcohol extracts the medicinal alkaloids and the volatile oils from the herbs. Allow the mixture to sit for about 2 weeks, shaking daily. Strain, pouring the liquid into a dark glass container that has been clearly labeled.
Tinctures can be used for many different illnesses. A tincture made from calendula flowers can be applied externally to cuts and scrapes, as well as taken orally for cramps and skin eruptions. When taken orally; dosage would be 5-15 drops for children and 10-25 drops for adults.
