Tinctures are a type of extract used to alleviate minor illnesses and provide health benefits. In most cases, you will take a tincture by mouth under the tongue. That said, there are some other ways to use tinctures, including topical applications and gargling. Be warned that the taste of tinctures can be very STRONG. If you're struggling to take a tincture, try diluting it water or juice.
Talk to your doctor if you are currently taking any medications. Some herbal supplements may reduce the effectiveness of certain medications or cause unwanted side effects. Before using a tincture, ask your doctor if it is safe for you.
Black cohosh, echinacea, valerian, St. John's Wort, ginseng, gingko balboa, and feverfew tinctures may have serious effects if taken with some common medications, such as acetaminophen, antidepressants, prednisone, and warfarin.
If you are pregnant, it is a good idea to have your doctor approve any tinctures or natural remedies before you use them.
Tinctures should only be used for minor illnesses and conditions. If you have a serious or life-altering condition, talk to a doctor instead.

Choose a tincture that will provide the benefits you want. Different herbs offer different benefits. To find the right tincture for you, talk to a doctor, natural medicine practitioner, or herbalist. You can buy tinctures at health food or herbal stores. Some popular tinctures include:
Echinacea to reduce the length of colds.
Chamomile and lavender to promote sleep, relaxation, and pain relief.
Rosemary and calendula to treat minor scrapes and cuts.
Peppermint to treat stomachaches.
Ginger to reduce inflammation and treat colds.
Thyme to treat coughs and respiratory infections.
Ingredients: Echinacea herb, Distilled water, Organic alcohol.
Use: One full dropper 3x daily or as needed. Shake well, store in a cool, dark place. Keep out of reach of children.
Warning: Stop immediately if reaction occurs and seek medical attention .
Dilute the tincture if you cannot handle the taste. Tinctures can have a strong and bitter taste. While diluting the tincture is not necessary, it can help make it taste better. Squeeze your dose of the tincture into a bowl with about 1–2 ounces (28–57 g) of water or juice. You can also use a few drops of lemon or honey. Mix them together before squeezing it back into the dropper.
Place the end of the dropper into the bottle. The top of the tincture bottle will have a dropper with a bulb attached to the lid. Hold the dropper by the bulb and insert the other end into the bottle.
Squeeze the dropper and release to fill it. A single squeeze is considered to be 1 “dropperful” of tincture. No matter how long your dropper is, 1 squeeze will almost always provide the same amount of tincture since the bulb on each dropper is the same size.
Keep in mind that there may still be some air at the top of the dropper. This is normal. Don't try to fill the dropper all the way to the top.
Squeeze the dropper to release a dose under your tongue. The tincture will enter your system most effectively if taken under the tongue. The tincture will taste very strong, but try to hold it under your tongue for 10-30 seconds before swallowing. Remove the dropper from your mouth.
Adults can squeeze down the bulb until the entire dropperful is released. If you are giving the dose to a child, use short, gentle squeezes to release the proper number of drops.
Repeat to give yourself another dropperful. Take as many dropperfuls as your dose requires. Remember to hold each dropperful under your tongue for a few seconds before swallowing.
Take a sip of water to get rid of the taste. If the taste was too much for you, you may take a sip of water to remove the taste after you have given yourself a dose. This is optional, however.
Blend tinctures if you are using more than 1 at a time. If you are using multiple tinctures at once, it is safe to blend them together in a bottle or bowl before squeezing them up in the eye dropper. Mix equal amounts of each tincture to get the full effect of each one.
To treat colds and flus, for example, you might mix licorice, goldenseal, and ginger tinctures.
To improve memory and alertness, try mixing gingko balboa, ginseng, and gotu kola.
Since dosages can vary between tinctures, check the labels of each tincture to make sure that the dosage is correct.
