How To Make A Glycerin Tincture

Learn how easy it is to make a glycerin tincture in a crockpot!

I recently made a glycerin tincture (properly called a glycerite) using an herbal mixture that boosts the immune system. I use this tincture at the first sign of illness, sometimes combined with colloidal silver, depending on how bad the illness is. 

Use 1/2 tsp. 3-5 times a day for children.  Use 1 tsp. 3-5 times a day for adults.  If the sickness is bad enough, you can even give a dose every hour until improvement.

In this video, I’m making the tincture using Double E Immune Booster.   You can also make it using only Echinacea.
