Information @ a Glance


  • In medicine, a tincture is an alcoholic extract or solution of a non-volatile substance. Solutions of volatile substances were called spirits, although that name was also given to several other materials obtained by distillation, even when they did not include alcohol.

  • A tincture is an herbal preparation made with alcohol or distilled water and dried or fresh herbs.


  • Tincturing is the process of making an herbal extract by steeping ground herb in a liquid menstruum, thereby infusing the liquid with the active constituents of the herb. These active consti-tuents are sometimes known as "extractives." The tincture itself is the finished product, a relatively stable solution of extractives that is preserved  against deterioration.
  • In homeopathic pharmaceuticals prepared from botanical origin, the fresh plant is cleaned, finely chopped and mixed with the appropriate quantity of ethyl alcohol and water as specified in the HPUS/RS.  Tinctures are tested against quality control specifications in the HPUS/RS, including organoleptic and chemical identity tests, dry residue and alcohol content determinations, as well as positive identification by thin layer chromatography (TLC).
