Herbal Medicine Series: DIY Tincture-Making

There are many ways to use plants as medicine, but keeping medicine on hand can sometimes present a problem. A tincture comes from processing herbs in a way that provides us with concentrated medicine that is easy to use, safe to travel with, and makes our herbal medicine supply last longer.
