Medicine Making II - Tinctures and Alcohol Extracts
This is it! You may have already tried stuffing a mason jar full of flowers and brandy, but this is the class where you can learn the exact method of making high-quality tinctures from fresh or dried plants. We will go in depth into the methods of maceration, including alcohol ratios, medicinal strength, correct measurements, constituent solubility factors, surface areas, pressing and storage. Learn to know your marc from your menstruum! Live demonstrations of the methods will let you see first hand how to prepare extracts that get the absolute most healing medicine from your plants. We welcome you back to in-person herbal medicine classes!
Our outdoor classroom is at the Sherrett Food Forest. There will be a plant sale on the same day, so if you arrive a little early you can buy produce and amazing garden plants and trees for your home.
To bring: Note taking materials. Clothes for staying very warm and dry. Good boots. We will have some kind of small heat source, but essentially we will be under shelter outdoors and Spring weather is variable. Bundle up.
