Our final activity with the Herbal Medicine Kit was the straining and pouring of our Echinaea Root Tincture.
Our tincture had sat infusing in vodka for six weeks. It was ready to pour a couple of days ago, but I waited for today as the kids were at a sleepover.
Quick and fun to do, we have a wonderful new addition to our herbal health care arsenal. Echinacea Root Tincture can be ingested with water, to help ward off an approaching cold or flu. It can also be applied directly to an open wound to help avoid infection.
The herbal medicine kit is done. Now (after I gather herbs and materials) I'm venturing into the Herbal Basics Course, which will be more indepth. Fun adventures ahead!
