Herb talk – tincture making with Chris Roe

September 21, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:30 pm UTC+1

| £35

Alcohol is a common medium of extraction for making plant medicine, it both extracts and preserves the medicinal properties of plants. Learn about how to make your own medicinal herb tincture for common complaints, from the most simple method to the more complex.  Which herbs give themselves well to tinctures? How do they compare to other types of preparation? How do we assess strength and potency? How does the strength of the alcohol affect the final preparation? During the workshop we will make a basic alcoholic herb tincture for you to take home at the end of the day.

Chris Roe was trained at the Scottish School of Herbal Medicine and has his own medicinal herb garden in the North of Bristol from which her runs his herbal apothecary.
