Everything I've read said that glycerites pretty much do the same thing as alcohol - just not quite as strong.
Just recently I made a tincture with veg glycerine from skullcap and St. John's Wort (both dried) for my arthritic dog to help control his pain. I strained it after just 3 weeks as it seemed to really gather 'strength' after the first week. It worked great for me
But remember that water based medicines were in use for thousands of years before alcohol came on the scene
So it sounds like you made a glycerite (used glycerine for extracting with no alcohol?) When you said it "gathered strength' does that mean you were dipping in and testing it during the 3 weeks? just curious....
When you said ..."it worked great".... do you mean it worked to reduce pain for your dog? or for You ?
Thanks for replying!
