In this two-day Advanced Herbal Medicine Making class we will learn the effective and fast extraction method known as the Percolation Method to create a very potent and finished tincture in 24-48 hours. Each student will have the opportunity to prepare a Percolation extract and take home the completed tincture as well as the needed Percolation tools.
We will also examine a variety of plant constituents, their solubility, proper extraction methods for each constituent, why we want to extract them, and then ways to determine if they have been extracted into our medicines to be sure of our potency.
We will also discuss double extraction techniques for enhanced potency and demonstrate solvent exchange for improved compliance.
This is a two day class and attendance to both days is required.
This class is appropriate for the advanced and intermediate student.
