When you walk into a drugstore and see all the powders, pills, and potions, it is easy to think that making your own herbal medicine would be complicated. The good news is, it’s not!

Herbalism is an ancient practice of utilizing herbs to support human health and flourishing. Taking a plant from freshly foraged to a form that can be stored for later use is a skill that has been handed down for many generations. Recent investigations of ancient Egyptian wine residues reveal that ancient peoples added medicinal spices and healing herbs to alcohol while the pyramids were being built!

Join us as we demystify the process of extracting herbs in water, alcohol, oil, and glycerine. These items create an end product known as tinctures.
