When I first began learning about natural remedies and administering them to my family, I never considered making my own natural medicines. Even considering such a thing was a very daunting task in my mind. After I started watching YouTube videos and reading herbal books about making natural remedies, I realized how really very simple it was to make tinctures!
The tinctures I make the most have a base of vegetable glycerin, making the tincture taste better and being a perfect thing for children.
You can do a cold glycerin tincture, but I prefer to add a little heat to help the glycerin extract the herbal properties. An easy way to do this is in a crockpot, using very low heat.
