>> Tincture Pressing

I spent most of yesterday pressing tinctures. It is an amazing thing to have a taste of the tincture once it has been pressed, because the grain alcohol so strongly contains and embodies the inherent qualities of the plant. The differences in the plants and their essential qualities come through very strongly.

Once the herbs have been pressed, and the liquid has been extracted, I love looking to see what layered textures are compressed and left behind.
