This hands-on workshop will provide you with the skills you need to make high-quality infusions, decoctions, and liquid extracts (tinctures) at home, that go far beyond common folk methods for herbal preparation. Students will learn how to assure that they are using high quality herbs and other ingredients, and then participate in tincture making that takes into account: fresh versus dry plant material, optimal alcohol percentage for various medicinal plants, and an introduction to basic phytochemistry as it relates to medicine making. Included in the class tuition is a small jar of tincture that each student will make during class and be able to bring home; a small materials fee will be charged if students wish to make additional extracts.
