Herbal tincture-making is a way of extracting and preserving the goodness of herbs so that you have them available to use all year round (because summer herbs do not grow in the winter!). Tinctures are usually made using alcohol. Alcohol is a very effective solvent and preservative so it is an excellent substance to use to make tinctures. Alcohol has a low boiling point so if you want to reduce the alcohol content of a tincture before giving it to someone then pour the dosage of tincture (e.g. 5 ml) into a dosage beaker or cup and add a splash of boiled water. Drink when cool. The heat of the boiled water will cause some of the alcohol to evaporate.
