Making Percolation Tinctures

Percolation tincturing is a way of preparing an herbal extract from dried powdered herbs. Its primary advantage over maceration tincturing is that your medicines can be finished in mere hours, instead of waiting weeks to months. Percolation can also help increase the strength of the finished tincture.
