What is an extract (tincture)? An extract is the product of an herb soaking in a medium for a set period of time. This infuses the chemicals found in the herb out into the soaking liquid. At the end of the time period the herb is strained out and the liquid is consumed orally. The amount of extract suggested is listed in drops. An extract is often preferred because it is a concentrated medicine and enters the blood stream quickly. They are especially good for acute situations.
