On Sunday I collected some dandelions. I collected all of the plant, the flowering tops, the leaves and the root. I cleaned the plant of soil and visitors then cut up the leaves stems, sliced the root, tooked the flowering heads and popped them in an old jam jar. To this I added some Vodka and covered the plant parts til the top then got the bubbles out.
The tincture is now in a dark cupboard next to some ild smelly shoes. It should take around three weeks.
tincture can be used for muscle aches and pains, rheumatism, bile stimulant, indigestion urinary antiseptic and a host of other things.
The remaining vodka can be drunk with some tonic and promotes dancing around the room to Abba wearing your underpants on your head at three o clock in the morning!
This mix will then be placed into tincture bottles and should keep for several years. The idea is to build up a medicine cabinet of natural remedies oils and ointments. It is so easy and enjoyable to do. Will post a vid and photos soon.
