Hi,
I am just starting out and actually ordered my herbs a few days ago.
I ordered several herbs to make a mixed tincture or formula.
Can i infuse them all in one jar with equal parts of each herb all at one time, or should i infuse each herb in a separate jar and then mix them as i put them in dropper bottles to make the formula.

Thanks very much.

P.S. I am using the same herbs as listed in a formula from Dr. Robert Morse`s Site. It is a Kidney Formula.

I'd say you ou could do it either way, it's totally up to you.
If you think you'd like to use some of the herbs on their own later on, then tincture them in separate jars and mix it later. If you think you'll only want to use the mixture, then go ahead and do it in one jar with the correct proportions!
Good luck!

Hi, thanks.

I have made the formula. I used the same portions of:
White Oak Bark
Dandelion Leaf
Oatstraw
Parsley Leaf
Butchers broom
Cornsilk
Uva Ursi Leaf
Hydrangea Root
Plantain Leaf
Burdock Root
Ginger Root

I placed them all in a mason jar together and filled the jar about 1 inch over the herbs with 190 proof Everclear. Is that going to be usable as a tincture or did i mess it up, LOL.

Again, thanks for your reply.
Wilf
