Whether you are a professional medical herbalist or just want to make your own herbal remedies at home, you can save time and money by being well equipped. These are the items I use for making herbal medicines.
What tools do you need to make tinctures?
Tinctures are one of the most popular herbal medicinal products. So, this first section includes the must-have tools and equipment for making herbal tinctures.
Stainless steel wine press
Very useful for pressing out herbal tincture, glycerites and oil. You will be able to collect a much higher volume of your precious herbal remedy by using this type of press.
Nylon straining bag
To make a tincture and other products, you will need to strain your medicinal herb. These bags are reusable and last a long time. I have several of these straining bags. They are indispensable.
Organic cotton straining bag
Cheesecloth is traditional for straining homemade preparations. These cheesecloth bags are high quality and organic. They will quickly become stained with the herbal mixture. Over time you will end up with a collection of different coloured bags depending on which medicinal plant you use to make your tinctures.
Amber glass mason jars
Dark glass jars are the best way to store your , powders and favourite blend. Use for storage or for macerating , herb-infused and any other. These amber mason jars are just perfect.
Canning jar funnel
This funnel set is the ideal size for using with standard and wide mouth mason jars. It makes pouring your creations into your chosen glass jar a much easier job.
