What are Tinctures?

Tinctures are herbal extracts or liquid herbal extracts. Tinctures are concentrated herbal preparations where the medicinal qualities of an herb are extracted into a liquid form. The most common liquids used for the extraction process of tinctures are a combination of water and grain alcohol and sometimes glycerin. Some tinctures contain a single herb. Other tinctures are a combination of several herbs and are usually labeled with a name that represents the possible benefits of that combination of herbs.
