Fresh Plant Tincture Extracts: The Math and the Magic of Medicine Making
Ever wondered how to accurately extract fresh plant material using a scientific method? Many resources recommend increasing the solvency and percent of alcohol to accommodate the water content in the plant material. While this method does work to create a folk medicine extract, using a higher percentage of alcohol isn’t necessary.
Join Clinical Herbalist &; Aromatherapist Colleen Emery as she details and demonstrates a precise technique for fresh plant tincture preparation that acknowledges the water in the plant and its contribution to the menstruum.
Within the demonstration Colleen will detail which herbs work well and are preferred as fresh plant extracts, the herbs that are more effective as dry plant extractions plus learn which herbs are problematic as fresh plant extracts.
Participants of the workshop will also be led through an organoleptic exploration, learning how to gauge what is a meaningful tincture extract and what may not be.
