this tincture is a concentrated herbal extract made by soaking the leaves of creeping thyme (grown in my garden) in vodka. this is a 1:1 tincture, meaning i used equal parts plant and alcohol, though i did so using the folk method (aka eyeballing). it was steeped for eight weeks before bottling in july 2020. it was not steeped in accordance with the moon phase, but it did spend the night under the light of the september 2020 full moon. this tincture will have a shelf-life of many years. each glass dropper bottle contains one ounce of tincture.
thyme may be used medicinally (it contains a compound called carvacrol that calms the nervous system), in cooking or drinks to add flavor, added to distilled water to make a room spray, etc. my favorite use is to add it to my drinking water for both the flavor and calming effect. as with anything going into your body, you should do your own research and be fully informed.
thyme is native to parts of southern europe and the levant. this would be a supportive herb to use in ancestral work if you have ancestors originating from that region.
note: alcohol-based tinctures have an incredible shelf-life and potency, but it is possible for remove the alcohol before consumption. feel free to contact me for more info.
