Crafting Herbal Tinctures Workshop & Luncheon

March 9 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm

Sunday, March 9th, 11:00 am – 1:30 pm
At Ranch Runamuck in Pine Grove, home of Herbal Med Rx

Herbal tinctures, or extracts, are a key component of traditional herbal medicine. They have been around for a millennia and are a favorite way of taking herbal extract remedies for many. While they are all “extracts” only those using ethyl alcohol as the solvent are “tinctures”. They are concentrated herbal extracts, also known as “hydroalcoholic” extractions. The alcohol extracts the constituents from the herbs and also acts as the preservative.

Various plants will release their constituents in water and some in alcohol, and some in both! There are times when a double (or dual) extraction is called for. We’ll discuss this and you’ll learn to hand craft your own herbal tincture. There are different methods of preparing herbal tinctures. You’ll learn the folk method, as well as the percolation method.

Enjoy refreshments and an organic lunch with other herbal enthusiasts as well!

Our Herbal Med Rx Apothecary will be open, featuring over 160 organic bulk herbs and over 60 organic herbal products and various accessories.

Workshop led by Su Lukasha, owner of Herbal Med Rx.

Class limited to 6. Fee: 45 includes handouts, instruction, organic lunch, and you take home your tincture. Get ticket here, or by calling 209-296-2120, or on Eventbrite: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/crafting-herbal-tinctures-luncheon-tickets-770969800427
