Since Iam no longer accustomed to drinking alcohol I feel a bit "loose off the Goose" after taking it. Does any one know about the use of glycerin
in the preparation of tinctures? In your collective experience has there been any other substance which was used instead of alcohol?
I've worked some with Glycerine, not a fan...REAL SWEET....can't get rid of the sweet SWEET.
I'd say go ahead and try some, make a small batch and see what you think/feel....and be sure to let us know what you think/feel about it.
Husband thinks it weird that I enjoy the tastes and scents of my tinctures, getting to where I can recognize a few herb tinctures just by taste.
I've also seen Glycerides and vinegars as "tinctures" for those with alcohol insensitivies or such.
However, the chemistry is different as alcohol is a solvent for particular alkaloids that may not be readily dissolved in acetic acid (vinegar) or Glycerine. Not to discount those, as I've als ohad very good luck with them using specific plants, but as a Generality, not so much.
for Hawthorn, I've only ever used alcohol, and at 100proof for all my tinctures.. But dripped into a glass of water before consuming, yes.
