Make your tincture by filling a jar 1/3 - 1/2 full of herbs. Use 1/3 for hard herbs and roots (as they will absorb more liquid) and 1/2 for soft or fluffy herbs. Fill the jar to the top with alcohol (80-90 proof Vodka is best), close it, and store for 3-8 weeks in a cool, dry place. Shake the jar daily. After 3-8 weeks, strain and discard the herbs, bottle the liquid and label it. For more information on making tinctures, please visit the how-to section

From Our Reading and/or Experience...
- Unlike most herbs that can be consumed as a life-long daily supplement, the Immune Booster should only be used in times of need.
- This dry herb mixture can be brewed into a tea. It can also be ground up into powder and encapsulated.
- Because of the Echinacea, Double-E Immune Booster is best taken when your immune system is compromised and not on a long-term basis.
- As is the case with most herbs, this mixture should be stored in a dark, dry, and cool place. Refrigeration or freezing is great, but certainly not necessary. Following these suggestions will delay the loss of its highly valued nutritional and medicinal properties.
- Follow the same instructions for storage after you make it into a tincture.
- Alcohol tincture or (extract) doesn't taste all that great, but it is more effective when drawing out the goodness of the herbs and is the easier tincture to make. For those two reasons alone, alcohol tinctures are the industry standard in all ready-made store-bought tinctures. They also keep the longest (at least 2 years).
- Glycerin tinctures (or glycerites), though not as effective as an alcohol tincture, are much more palatable with their sweet flavor. However, they will only keep for up to one year or so.
- A combination of both alcohol and glycerin has the benefits of both (effectiveness, sweet flavor, and longer shelf life).
