I certainly hope you'd do research to determine what is safe/beneficial for anyone in your family -- I wouldn't want to say that XXX is good for YYY and have you end up in the emergency room!!!

Though tinctures ARE made from alcohol, the amount administered is usually pretty small--an adult dosage is usually a small amount in a glass of water.  The amount of alcohol you'd be ingesting is really, really minimal.

This site has some good suggestions and ideas on how to make them more child-friendly, too. Smiley  Perhaps this is more what you had in mind?

Tinctures are awesome. The ratio is 1 part herb to 5 parts alcohol. I made my own sleep tincture using bulk sleep tea & it worked great - the hardest part is the waiting tho, like lapoli said. Vegetable glycerin is a great sub for the alcohol when making tinctures for kids or for those who are adverse to alcohol. The tincture taste made w/vodka can be very strong & it would be best to consult your dr. 1st as lapoli suggested.

Awesome post! I really like the picture! Just looks really esthetically good lol. Good reminder for me to do another tincture.. I made Valerian, skullcap, and passionflower. They were so I could create a awesome sleep blend for sister. But I kinda moved a bit and never got to use them, but they were hauled every move and ruined my suitcase, I swear they smelled more than smelly socks then, well smelly socks did.
