Why make an herbal tincture?

Taking herbs in their whole form certainly has its benefits, but some of the constituents can actually pass through the digestive tract without ever being absorbed by the body. Herbal extracts are able to draw even more constituents from the plant material and are then contained in a medium which is easily accessible to the body. Solvents can be water, vinegar, glycerin, or alcohol. A tincture is an herbal extract that only uses alcohol as its solvent. They are potent and concentrated, requiring only small doses at a time, and tinctures are very portable and ideal for when you are away from home.
