About the Event
Herbal tinctures are often a "go-to" for many herbalist when distributing herbs to clients, both for their efficacy and shelf life. Though, a "tincture" can refer to a number of different extractions, it is traditionally made with an alcohol, or water-alcohol solvent. An alcohol-water solvent extracts the widest range of constituents from a plant, including essential oils, alkaloids, alkamides, glycosides, acids, bitters, and resins.
A Glycerite is made using glycerin as the solvent. Glycerites are highly effective solvents for extracting chemicals including essential oils, alkamides, tannins, acids, polysaccharides, saponins, and glycosides. Some people prefer to ingest glycerine tincture over alcohol-based tincture due to their sweeter taste. They are also a preferred choice for administering herbal support to people who have alcohol sensitivities.
