Okay, I'll be talking alot about herbs from here on out, so you'll want to know how to do this.
The reason I make my own tinctures is that it saves me ALOT of money. Here an example:
I use Red Raspberry leaf tincture every day. I would spend approx $320 per year if I bought the tinctures to use...by making them myself, I spend approx $7.00. Totally worth it! I've got the leaves in the backyard!
