Lesson 5: Formulas

The potion recipes that you acquire now, and over time, will accumulate rapidly. Or, at least they can accumulate rather rapidly if you actually use them. So, I would suggest putting together a recipe book; a “Potion & Powder Recipe Book”. Have categories set up in what ever order or manner that works best for you, such as the herbs used, or the carrier oils used, or what its intent is (health, money, etc.), or whether its “mundane” or “magical”. The ideas are endless, just find what works best for you.

 

How to Make Herbal Potions

Brewing Herbal Formulas 101

To someone who is not generally familiar with herbs, buying and using herbal formulas can be a bit bewildering. So perhaps the best way to advance is to simply give you a complete description of how to do this for yourself:

 

Here’s What to Do

Make a list of the herbs and quantity you will need. Then, go to any reputable health food store where you don’t have to worry about the quality of the bulk herbs you will be purchasing. (I particularly avoid GNC). Get the quantity of herbs you need. While you’re at it, buy a small kitchen scale so you can carefully weigh out the amounts of herbs you will use.

 

If you think you will be using the herbal formula for an extended period of time, buy larger quantities of herbs; making a larger amount of a "potion" is much less expensive overall than making a small batch. However, if you want to “try it out” first, reduce the quantities proportionally.

 

Large, 3 liter glass jars with rubber gasket tops are perfect for making herbal formulas. These can be purchased at any store where you would ordinarily buy kitchen supplies.

 

Let’s say I was making the Flash Formula (included further below in this section). After weighing out the correct amount, calculated to total about 16 ounces of herbs, put all the herbs into the 3 liter jar. Add about 2 ¼ liters of the cheapest vodka you can find.

 

For those who cannot use alcoholic beverages, you can use glycerin, but experience is that if you make potions using alcohol, when taking these, place the correct amount of potion in a glass of hot tea or coffee. The heat dissipates the alcohol.

 

Close the top and shake this up a few times. Place into a cabinet or anywhere out of direct light. Every few days or so, give the jar a few shakes to mix everything up.

 

After 30 days, carefully pour off the liquid which is now fully charged with the power of the bulk herbs you put in. Figure out some way to squeeze additional liquid out of the herbs that are left. Using several layers of cheesecloth is the easiest. They make herb presses, and if you really get into this, it is well worth purchasing one, as you will recover a substantial amount of liquid you would otherwise throw away.

 

Keep your new herbal formula in a glass container for storage. When ready to use, do this:

 

Buy a 4 or 6 ounce dropper bottle at any drugstore, and fill it with formula from your main storage container. To start, take 3 or 4 droppers full ** 2, 3, or 4 times a day- depending on your symptoms. Put the droppers full into a few ounces of water. Sip this slowly, or just let it sit under your tongue**

 

**Note- Not drops, but droppers full. Whatever comes out when you squeeze and release the rubber bulb is a dropper full. It may actually be 20 or 30 drops.

 

**Note also- do not swallow immediately as you normally would swallow medicine. By letting the liquids sit under your tongue for a minute or so, the herb will be absorbed directly into the bloodstream by means of the blood vessels beneath your tongue. This keeps them from being broken down by the acids in your stomach, and is much more effective than if you swallow.

 

As your symptoms lessen, you can cut back on the amount of whatever Formula you are taking.

 

Many good natural health stores have books containing herbal formulas. These 'potions' are an effective alternative to helping improve your own health while minimizing taking synthetic drugs. When you use herbals, you will notice they don't "force" themselves on you. Taking something like Valerian Tincture to help you sleep is not like taking Ambien CR. Herbs are gentle, and ordinarily do not cause bad side effects.

 

***************************************************************************************************************

Tincturing: This is the process of making an herbal extract by steeping ground herb in a liquid menstruum, thereby infusing the liquid with the active constituents of the herb. These active constituents are sometimes known as "extractives." The tincture itself is the finished product, a relatively stable solution of extractives that is preserved (usually with alcohol) against deterioration.

 

Pressing: This is the process wherein the macerating extract is thoroughly squeezed or "expressed," thereby separating the herb from the liquid, which is now infused with the activity of the herb. This can be accomplished by hand. Drape the pressing cloth over a bowl, pour the macerating extract into it, close up the top, and by kneading, squeezing, and twisting, wring as much liquid into the bowl as your strength will allow. This can also be accomplished with a tincture press. A tincture press is composed of two parallel platens on a frame that is rigged with a hydraulic jack and a pan fitted with a drain hole and a hose. The macerating extract is poured into a pressing cloth inside the pan and the cloth is folded over the top of the mass of herb to prevent it from squeezing out the sides. Then the platens are jacked together, thereby efficiently forcing the liquid from the herb. Not only does this press out the menstruum, but it also forces the intrinsic plant water out of fresh plant material. The tincture flows from the pan down a hose and is captured in a receiving vessel. Using a tincture press greatly increases the yield from a given batch of extract, making the most of your expenditure for alcohol and your valuable work in growing the herbs.

 

Simplified procedure for making a tincture:

1) Chop the fresh herbs or grind up the dried herbs.
2) Place the herb in a glass jar, labeled with the current date and the name of the herb.
3) Add sufficient liquid menstruum to cover the herbs.
4) Put the jar in a dark place at room temperature and shake at least once daily.
5) After 2 or 3 weeks, pour the contents of the jar through several layers of cheesecloth and express the liquid, or better yet use the tincture press.
6) Allow the liquid to settle in a clean jar overnight.
7) Decant the clear liquid through a filter paper.
8) Store in correctly labeled, amber glass bottles, out of the light.

How to Make an Herb Press Tincture

By Ann White, eHow Contributing Writer

 

Tinctures are alcohol- and herb-based mixtures used by herbalists and their patients for medicinal purposes. Tinctures are simple to make, and are a very reliable form of medicine when used as directed. To maximize the amount of tincture removed from the herbs, consider using an herb press instead of straining a tincture through cheesecloth.

 

Instructions

Things You'll Need:

200 grams dried herbs

1 liter vodka

3 1-liter canning jars

2 paper bags

Herb Press

Labels

Marker

 

Step 1

Grind the herbs into a fine powder using a coffee grinder. Those who prefer a more natural approach can use a mortar and pestle.

 

Step 2

Divide the powder and vodka equally between the two canning jars. Any brand of vodka will work. Seal the jars tightly with their lids.

 

Step 3

Place the jars in the paper bags to protect the tincture from light.

 

Step 4

Shake the jars vigorously once each day for a month.

 

Step 5

Place the herbs in the herb press and put the extraction hose into the third canning jar. An herb press is a compression machine that applies pressure to extract the greatest amount of liquid. Herb presses can be purchased online (see Resources). Apply pressure to the herbs with the press. Pressing is complete when no more liquid is depositing into the jar.

 

Step 6

Tightly seal and label the tincture with the date it was finished and its ingredients.

Tinctures And Herbal Extracts: How To Make Menstruums

There are three basic menstruums, or solvents used to extract the chemical compounds of herbs in tinctures, alcohol, glycerin, and vinegar. Alcohol is the most used because it can extract fats, resins, waxes, most alkaloids, and some of the volatile oils, as well as many other plant compounds. Water is also necessary to extract the water soluble plant chemicals. Using an 80 to 100 proof alcohol such as vodka, brandy and gin provides the alcohol-water ratio you need without having to add anything. If pure grain alcohol ( 190 proof) is used, water will have to be added. Don't use city tap water that contains chlorine, use either distilled or pure spring water.

 

Herbs: Either fresh or dried finely chopped herbs can be used. Use of one pint of menstruum to two ounces of dried herbs, or about two handfuls of fresh.

 

The important thing is to completely cover the herbs, leaving a couple of extra inches of liquid about the herbs to allow for swelling as the herbs absorb the liquid. Leave some headroom in the jar. If using vinegar, warm first before pouring it over the herbs.

Procedure for making an easy tincture:

 

Chop herbs finely

 

Place in a glass jar, labeled with the current date and name of the herb

 

Add sufficient liquid menstruum to completely cover the herb

 

Cap with a tight fitting lid, put the jar in a dark place at room temperature, and shake at least once daily.

 

After 2 to 3 weeks, strain the contents through several layers of cheesecloth.

Allow to settle overnight in a clean jar

 

Restrain through a filter paper

 

Store in a labeled, amber glass bottle away from light and heat.

 

The Chinese macerate herbs for months sometimes even years. For stronger tinctures a suggested time can be 4 to 6 weeks. The duration depends on the mixture and on your patience, in time you will develop your own style. Use a kitchen cupboard that you open on a regular basis, so you don't forget the shake the bottle! Tinctures will keep for 6 months. The standard dose is one tablespoon in a wineglass of water once or twice a day.

 

Liniments are made exactly the same as herbal tinctures, except they are meant for external use. Make sure and label your liniments "FOR EXTERNAL USE ONLY" , when using a solvent that is inedible such as rubbing alcohol.

 

Using vinegar to tincture herbs. Alcohol has mostly displaced vinegar as a menstruum for making liquid herbal extracts, as it is far more efficient in extracting and preserving the medicinal properties of herbs. Vinegar is however passable solvent and useful in cases where you wish to avoid alcohol. When used in conjunction with alcohol, vinegar can sometimes assist in the extraction of alkaloid (base) substances from herbs. Such an extract containing both vinegar and alcohol is known as an acetous tincture.

Herb Tincture Press

What Is an Herb Tincture Press?

An herb tincture press is a device that you can use in your home to make herbal tinctures. It usually consists of some type of a straining mechanism, a container and a press. There are a variety of herb tincture presses available on the market for around $150, as well as a number of methods for making your own tincture press.

 

What is a Tincture?

An herbal tincture is a concoction made with distilled water and/or alcohol and fresh herbs and/or dried herbs. Tinctures are typically taken in tea, water or juice, and are believed to be more readily accessible to and more quickly absorbed by the body than capsules, tablets and powders. Tinctures also have much more stability than dried or fresh herbs. While dried and fresh herbs can mold, a tincture can last indefinitely in a dark glass jar. It is important to note if you are making your own tinctures that the type of alcohol to use is pure grain alcohol – not rubbing alcohol or wood alcohol, which are poisonous.

 

Tinctures can be made by steeping herbs in pure grain alcohol, vinegar and/or distilled water, or by pressing them through a tincture press. Those that come through a tincture press are purer and more concentrated, and using a press allows you to get that last little bit of concentrated herbal goodness out of the herbs that you are pressing.

 

Why Make Your Own Tinctures

Herbal tinctures purchased in the health food store can be quite expensive. Pressing your own tinctures can provide several ounces of herbal tincture for the price of a tiny bottle that is a fraction of an ounce. By making your own herbal tinctures at home, you also have control over the quality and ingredients that go into them.

Make Your Own Herbal Tinctures

Save money, and know what you're getting
by Mary Hanna

 

Many people are making their own tinctures from dried and fresh herbs in an attempt to be more involved in their health. Tinctures of fresh herbs have proven to be more vitalizing and longer lasting than dried herbs. Dried herbs tend to get moldy or be eaten by insects; tinctures will not. Tinctures will keep for as long as two years and sustain their potency if stored properly. Creating your own tinctures will save you quite a bit of money. If you buy tinctures at a retail shop you might get a few ounces but if you create them yourself you can yield a quart.

 

The principles behind making tinctures are to obtain the spiritual and physical quintessence of the plant. This is done by using ethyl alcohol to dissolve and preserve the herb you are using.

 

The material used to extract the herbs is known as the menstrum. The herbs you are tincturing are called the mark. Tincturing will extract and maintain both the water-soluble and alcohol-soluble properties of an herb.

 

When purchasing herbs, be sure you are buying from a trustworthy source. Better yet, grow your own herbs to be confident of the best possible quality. When growing your own you can make any number of combinations to produce your tinctures. I have further found that when growing my own herbs I get the greater gratification, knowing not only did I brew the tincture but I grew the herbs. I am part of the process from starting point to the development of the tinctures.

 

To cook up your own tinctures, you need either dried or fresh cut herbs, vodka, brandy or rum, 80 - 100 proof to pour over the herbs, mason jars complete with lids, unbleached muslin or cheesecloth, ands of course, labels.

 

Have on hand 7-10 ounces of chopped fresh herbs for every quart of vodka, brandy or rum. Always try to utilize fresh herbs when creating tinctures. When using dried herbs, use 4 ounces of herbs to one pint of the spirit used. If you are making a tincture from bitter herbs it is best to use rum as it will disguise the flavor of the herbs. To knock out a non-alcoholic tincture, use distilled water, glycerol or vinegar. Just remember you must keep the resulting tincture in the refrigerator.

 

Put your herbs in the mason jars and then drizzle the spirit used over them so that it comes up to about an inch above the herbs. Close the lids tightly and tag the jars then put them in a very dark, dry section of your home. Keeping them in a paper bag has works fine. You must shake the tincture every day, several times a day if you can manage it. If you put it by the door you use most often, every time you go in or out just shake the bag.

 

At the beginning inspect the tincture daily to be sure the vodka, brandy or rum still is covering the herbs. Allow the brew to steep for at least two weeks and up to three months. When it's ready, line a sieve with the cheesecloth or muslin and pour the fluid through the sieve into a fresh, clean bottle. Draw in the ends of the cheesecloth and press to get all of the tincture. You can now fill smaller bottles with droppers with the tincture for easy use. Be sure to tag the jar with the name of the herb and the day, the month and the year that it was produced.

 

To use the tincture, drop one teaspoon into juice, water, or tea, three times per day.

 

Here are a few ideas for treating colds. Prepare tinctures from the herbs that follow:

 

* echinacea (leaves, flowers)

* elder (leaves, flowers, berries)

* eyebright (leaves, flowers)

* ginger (root)

* peppermint (leaves)

* yarrow (leaves, flowers)

* catnip (leaves)

 

There are no hard and fast rules for creating tinctures. Experiment with different combinations. Be sure you note down the recipe you used for each batch so when you come up with a winner you will have it on file.

***************

Mundane Intents

Cleaning

This one is easy - you can either make your own potions to use for cleaning. OR you can add a few drops of a magically infused oil into your store-bought cleaning supplies. OR, and this is the easiest, you magically empower your store-bought cleaning supplies!

 

Believe it or not, but many of those never-to-be-pronounced “chemicals” on the backs of those bottles are just the scientific chemical name for the exact chemicals found in many, if not most, of the natural herbs and oils we use. The main difference being, of course, that they have extracted the (supposed) “best” ingredients for their use. Whatever. Who cares about the technicalities anyway? As long as it gets the job done. Magically & mundanely!

 

Health

Again, you can produce your own potions for better health, or you can use what is easily purchased at the store that you have in your cabinet already. Just magically empower those health aids (pills, liquids, bandages, etc.) to do their job with extra energies provided by you and the Divine you call upon to empower them with.

 

Working Appliances & Electrical Items

This kind of falls under the “Cleaning” category because while cleaning with your empowered potions (magically empowered store-bought mundane potions or your own home-made magically empowered potions) you can speak or think the intent you want regarding your appliances - fridge, stove, microwave, T.V., computer, clocks, etc.

 

So, you can see, you don’t need bottles & bottles of potions for every single intent or thing in your house! You just need one or two - which you probably already have and use - and empower them as you use them!

 

***************************************************************************************************************

Powders

The sprinkling powders here are made by combining the herbs together and grinding them to a fine powder with a mortar & pestle or a coffee grinder (used ONLY for your herbs) with essential oils and a base of rice flour or cornstarch.
