We're excited to begin working on the next class in our online series, Make Better Medicine. This one will focus on one of our favorite topics: how to craft multi-herb elixirs using infused honeys and different tinctures (made with different ethanol %s) - and how to end up with the right final ethanol percentage for reliable preservation. This fascinating method for making elixirs (like syrups, only better!) is adapted from the classic 1890's elixir recipes of the Eclectic pharmacist John Uri Lloyd.
We'll use magic (oops, I mean easy-to-follow Medicine Math formula calculators & worksheets) to dial in not only the final ethanol % but also to determine the actual dose of each ingredient that's in our final product. We'll also learn how to formulate elixirs for specific purposes, such as Upper Respiratory and Lower Respiratory Elixirs and Bitters Elixirs (delicious & potent)!
Scroll down to join our mailing list & keep an eye on your inbox for updates on this exciting new class ... We're aiming to have it ready for you by the end of the year, and we're planning an in-person elixir extravaganza at Elderberry's Farm for 2023!
