How to pre­pare your herbs be­fore tinc­tur­ing

Herbs & Superfoods - - Herbs For Health & Wellbeing -

Un­less covered in dirt (un­likely) your freshly picked herbs should not be washed. Roots may be washed, but only if nec­es­sary. Your herbs should be com­pletely dry be­fore us­ing. Chop fresh herbs as fine as you can to increase the sur­face area for the mac­er­a­tion, although del­i­cate flow­ers can be left whole. Dried herbs can be pow­dered in a blender. Don’t leave herbs ex­posed to sun­light as this will di­min­ish their health qualities.
