I received many requests for the Ginger Root Tincture recipe, which is used for the herbal home treatment of arthritis pain, colds, nausea, cholesterol and fibromyalgia.
Below is the process to make a ginger root tincture, which will be good for a couple of years if kept in a dark colored glass container and in a cool environment.
The average dosage is 3 ml. added to warm water as needed.
1 Large mouth sterile glass jar with lid big enough to hold ingredients
½ Cup chopped fresh ginger root (1/4 cup if dried ginger is used)
1 Dark colored sterile glass bottle with stopper big enough to hold strained liquid
1 Label for colored bottle
Put ginger in large mouth jar and add 1 cup vodka, if using fresh ginger. If using powder ginger add 2/3 cups vodka and 1/3 cup water. Seal the jar and shake for 1 minute.
Label and date the jar so that you can identify it later in the event you are working on making other tinctures.
Shake the jar daily for 2 weeks. At the end of 2 weeks, strain the mixture through cheese cloth into the dark glass jar. Seal the jar and add a label with the tincture name and date.
Keep the jar in a cool dark place until needed.
