  • Tincture with 4 herbs

    Posted by JellyFishKarma on May 23, 2023 at 3:23 pm

    I am being asked to make a water/glycerin tincture with several herbs. I am some what confused on how to do several herbs… Do each herb extraction is 1:2 or 1:3 etc? Do I do each herb extraction separately in a water/glycerin solvent. Afterwards doing 4 herbs tinctures do I combine the a portion of the extracts to make a final result?

    I would say that depends on your technical possibility. if you are able to make a Plant extract yourself with the necessary equipment time and Personal for that you can just extract all 4 together will although already separate some of the plant parts that are not good in Combination

    If you don’t have that possibility you can either find an Extraction company that does the extraction of the 4 together for you, or you can find one that gives you access to the plant extract that you need.

    Just be aware that sometimes if you mix plant extracts you get some separation of particles and plant parts that react with each other over the first 2 or 3 days. so be sure to Filtrate them after mixing and time to separate.
