Valerian is a calming herb that helps people with insomnia or hyperactivity. The alcohol extracts and preserves many of the medicinal properties of the Valerian.
Tinctures take several weeks to fully extract but it’s well worth it. You end up with very cost-effective and convenient way to use your favorite herbs in a liquid form. You can store tinctures safely for years. John also a great tip on measurement of dry herbs vs. freshly cut and chopped herbs.
