Folk Method Tincture
Fill a Mason jar three-quarters full of chopped, fresh plant material or half full of crushed or powdered dried material. Cover the material with the cheapest 100-proof vodka (the menstruum) you can find. Seal tightly and shake vigorously. Shake the jar several times a day for 14 days, topping off the jar if material floats above the menstruum. Remove the lid and strain. Store tincture in blue or amber glass bottles in a cool, dark location. Dosage depends on herb used, age and weight, so a little research will be necessary.
