How To Make Flower Remedies and Herbal Tinctures
How To Make Flower Remedies and Herbal TincturesTinctures are made by steeping fresh or dried herbs in pure alcohol. The plants' active constituents are dissolved in the alcohol, which acts as an excellent preservatives.
Herbal tinctures are stronger than infusions and decoctions. They are a convenient way to administer herbal remedies over extended periods of time, especially when traveling . It's standard to make a tincture from a single herb and to blend tincture from a single herb and to blend tinctures from your herbal medicine cabinet as required. They have a shelf life of up to two years, so it is well worth preparing your own homemade tinctures.
Flower remedies are a form of homeopathic tincture. They are a subtle treatment that captures the essential qualities of flowers or herbs by infusing them in water. Flower remedies are effective for treating the emotional imbalances that underlie many illnesses, and they are also a good way to raise your energy levels.
