Greetings Herbal Enthusiasts!
February 4th meeting we will explore the technique of “Tincturing By Percolation.” This is taken from the book by James Greene. The Herbal Medicine–Maker’s Handbook: A Home Manual Selena and the Guild will lead the way for this hands–on class in exploring a fast method to prepare medicine when you are short on time. Plus it is FUN!!
You will need to bring a glass water bottle and a mason jar. A one liter Crystal Geyser or Calistoga–like water bottle. The water bottle–cap helps regulate the percolation and fits nicely into a wide–mouthed mason canning jar.
There will be a $5.00 fee to cover the cost of the herbs and vodka.
You will bring some home to enjoy in your mason jar.
See you then and get ready for a fun–filled informative year!!
Selena Tunison Hi y’all! I’m a contradiction in terms. I was a Cosmetologist in the 1980s so I love herbal lotions, salves, and oils. I then became a Combat Medic and Practical Nurse, Army trained in the 1990s with a bunch of ER training. In the 2000s I became a nurse in the Birth Center at United Hospital. I’ve been at the OB/GYN clinic, Post Partum, Newborn Nursery, and now as a scrub nurse in Labor and Delivery. I love Western Herbalism but I was a grower first and learned everything I could about growing plants in Zone 4–5 during the long winter’s months and I’m from Alabama. So that’s where —y’all— came from and I hope I can be of service to you on your Herbal Journey.
