Homemade alcohol tinctures are used to treat many diseases, as well as for rubbing. For their preparation, they use ordinary medical alcohol, which can be bought at a pharmacy, and medicinal plants. Tinctures are used as an adjuvant in the treatment of diseases while taking medications.
Take the herbs you need for the tincture and grind them. If you bought herbs in packs that are sold at the pharmacy, then you do not need to grind.
Pour 40-70% rubbing alcohol into a wide-mouth jar or bottle and add herbs. For convenience, you can first pour herbs, and only then pour alcohol. If you are using a jar, fold the herbs into cheesecloth and tie them in a knot, then place them in a container.
The tincture is prepared for 7-10 days. Shake the container periodically, if you do not do this, then upon reaching a certain concentration in the lower layers of the alcohol of the medicinal infusion, the enrichment of alcohol with herbs will stop. Store the tincture container in a dark place at room temperature with the lid tightly closed.
After your tincture has stood for 7-10 days, strain it. If you used cheesecloth as a filter bag, you can skip it. Look closely at the color - if the liquid is cloudy, don't use it. Regardless of the color, the tincture should be transparent.
