Tincture Making Class
Tinctures (alcohol extracts*) are a very resource efficient, highly absorbable, and shelf stable medium for medicinal herbs. One of the drawbacks for many people is that they tend to be quite expensive. For the same price as a 4 ounce tincture at the store, you will leave this class with more than four ounces of fresh-plant tincture of your own making. You can choose between several fresh seasonal medicinals, which you’ll harvest right from the ground at Oshala. You will also gain the skills to continue making these extracts (both fresh and dry plant tinctures), and deepen your relationship with your medicine. This class will be taught by Lauren Kemple of Backyard Wildcraft and the Oshala Herb Lab.
*Glycerine, an alternative to alcohol for tincture making, will be available for those who prefer it.
$45 + $5 materials fee
