Hello!

I am new to making tinctures and do not know much about it. I made two different tinctures on 12/3/2013, lavender and damiana with 100 proof vodka. I have not opened them yet. Are these still good given that they are almost a year old?

Thank you!

Absolutely! In some traditions the herbs are left in for decades! Strain it and keep your tincture in a cool, dark place.
