Welcome to my blog!!! I have been an herbalist & an aromatherapist for over 20 years!! My blog is over 10 years old & there are over 100 informative blogs here. Not only do I have hopes of teaching the masses, I too, have learned a lot during my research on different topics! There's always new & updated information in the herbal & essential oil worlds. There are blogs on herbs, essential oils, nutrition, supplements, different modalities of healing and just a little bit of everything!! Maybe in reading my blogs, just one person will come away with a bit of knowledge that they might be able to help themselves or another human being, I would consider that to be a great blessing.....

Over the years I have had several businesses. It seems I can't get away from seeing if a certain herb or essential oil can help a fellow human and that's usually how it starts. I am now in Arizona and I was asked again if I would be interested in starting another herbal business!! We now have Herbs 4 Health!! Providing numerous herbs....herbal blends....single essential oils...essential oil blends....minerals....tinctures all to help the body to heal itself.

The information in these blogs is not meant in any way shape or form to plagiarize, for I have never said this is all MY work. It is a compilation of reputable informative websites, my 'go to' books I have always depended upon & my own knowledge. I gather & put together information to help people learn & this way they can come back here to help remind themselves of said information instead of 'where oh where did I find that on the world wide web'. Seems to me it's just better & easier.

DISCLAIMER: All the information in these blogs do not diagnose, treat or heal any type illness or disease.

Removing Alcohol From Tinctures

Sometimes people want all the benefits from a tincture, but don't want the alcohol. Weather it be because of giving to children, AA members, religious reasons or that you simply don't want or like the alcohol. 

There is an overnight or day method which is really simple and doesn't harm the beneficial herbal ingredients in the tincture. 

Take a clean cup, preferably glass, and squirt the tincture drops, from the bottle's eyedropper, into the cup and then cover with a clean cloth.

Leave in a warm place overnight OR you can even do this during the day if you wish for about 12-24 hrs. During this time, the alcohol should have evaporated. Add some clean, filtered water and stir so that any dehydrated herbs from the tincture is reabsorbed into the water. Drink up!!

REMEMBER: The more you put in the glass, the longer it will take for it to evaporate. 

TIP: Keep the bulk of your tincture with the alcohol and just "de-alcohol" the amount you  need daily and the tincture should keep for years.

NEVER BOIL THE TINCTURE!! It changes the chemical structure of the herb & often kills valuable nutrients
