It was supposed to be a cinnamon tincture. I got the hairbrained idea sometime last fall that i wanted to tincture cinnamon. So, after doing some research on proper alcohol :water ratio in tincturing cinnamon, i proceeded to make cinnamon tincture.
10 % glycerine
I know cinnamon is a nice demulcent stimualting and warming herb...but boy,...is this stuff blobby gobby. Cinnamon saliva... or soemthing. rather gross, and slippy feeling. But it sure does taste good; mildly sweet, cinnamon spicey, and very astringent.
I think it will be ok to mix in with other tinctures in formula. But we'll see. Funny things plants do when you're not looking, eh??
Anyone else ever tinctured cinnamon? What was your experience?
i checked out gaia herbs cinnamon tincture at work....it was solid...not really a liquid at all...i'm thinking...hrm....that CANT be right.
Herb Pharm's was very liquidy. 65% alcohol in theirs. Perhaps i just needed to up the alcohol content?
