Tincture Making Workshop // October 7th
Saturday, October 7th, 1-3pm
with Guest Herbalist, Liz Philbrick
Learn how to make your own tinctures! Tinctures are made with alcohol and water to extract the medicinal properties of herbs. They are a wonderful and convenient way of taking herbal medicine. In this informative class we will discuss and demonstrate methods to make fresh and dried plant tinctures. We will cover both the maceration & percolation processes. Participants will go home with samples as well as the resources to make their own tinctures at home. This is a demonstration style class.
