I was inspired by the Youtube Channel that @wendy4 shared a while back here!

So I started the process of making a Mother Tincture, i.e. a concentrated extract of a plant! :herb:

I still have an abundance of Lavender, so I used alcohol to extract the nutrients of the plant. I learned that alcohol allows easy absorption of natural components into the bloodstream, and it is also useful for its preservation.

DIY Lavender Tincture

  • Glass jars with cap
  • 2 cups vodka
  • 1/2 cup organic lavender flowers, dried.

Instructions

  1. Place lavender flowers into glass jar.
  2. Pour vodka over flower and place cap securely on.
  3. Give a little shake and place out of direct sunlight.
  4. Let sit for at least 2 weeks, giving it a little shake once in a while.
  5. Strain through a sieve, gently pressing flowers to extract all the goodness. You can strain again through a sieve lined with an unbleached coffee filter if you want.
  6. Place in a clean glass container with a tight cap. Keep out of direct sunlight.

Its Magickal Uses :sparkles:

Lavender favors clairvoyance. It brings harmony and peace to the home and it’s a great purifier. Some people place lavender under the pillow before going to bed to favor a calm, relaxed sleep.

Well can’t do much lately, but I am drying lavender I harvested and 3 roses the bf gave me so I can grind them up and make something with them. Probably some oil.

Thanks again @TheTravelWitch! My Mom actually had me write down the words to that song and used part of it as a prayer once. Everyone thought it was so lovely and asked her where she found it and she had to admit she got it from the Muppets. LOL.
