For Lemon Balm Tincture I packed this quart mason jar with very fresh lemon balm leaves and covered with vodka. I let it sit for four weeks in a dark cabinet turning it every few days. Once it was done tincturing I strained it several times through cheese cloth and poured it into a sterilized jar for storage. I will store it in a dark cabinet and use as needed.
I also made some smaller bottles for friends - because what's the point in making all these herbal goodies if we don't share them?
