Herbs still in the glycerine months later
« on: April 19, 2006, 08:09:33 AM »
I've been trying my hand at herbal tinctures lately and many of them I've made half as a glycerite and half in an alcohol base, then I combine the two. 

Cleaning my cupboards yesterday I realized that I had made an herbal glycerite and put it up on the shelf before straining it - I know glycerin is a great preservative, so I figure it's OK, but usually they are strained as soon as they cool so I just wanted to make sure that it's not a problem to strain and use now.  It was made 3 or 4 months ago.

Thanks,

I've done that before too, and it was okay. We used it this last winter.
