Eight Weeks ...........

have passed since I gathered , chopped roots and tinctured my echinacea. I didn't have any cheesecloth on hand to strain the tincture , so I cut squares from an old sheet and used a piece to strain it. The sheet squares actually work better , so I'll be using them from now on. I plan to cut about a dozen squares and use them for herbal straining only , the great thing is they can be used , washed and used again , much better than cheesecloth and so much easier to work with. Yesterday I was browsing the internet for info about herbs and I found info on making garlic tincture and cayenne tincture. I definitely plan to make these tinctures soon to add to my herbal medicine cabinet. If you're interested , here's the link It tells you how to make the garlic tincture and what it can be used for. If you look to the left of the article , you'll see a link to making cayenne tincture and it's usage.
