Astragulas Tincture

I finally got brave a put up my first batch of Astragulas Tincture last week. I've been putting off tincturing this particular herb because due to the high amount of polysaccharides present it doesn't tincture well via the cold extraction method. So I had to do a little more research on it and discovered that it is best tinctured by making a strong decoction and then preserving it with the same grain alcohol that you would use for your cold extraction tinctures.

I'm happy to say that I now have a half quart of this beautiful golden medicinal that no herbal medicine cabinet should be without, especially during the long and sometimes wet winter months.

I will try and post a picture of it tomorrow.
