Preset Cycle 4 Hours Temperature Default 130º Tinctures are alcohol extracted products. Alcohol is extremely efficient in pulling the active ingredients from your herbs. A few drops are placed under the tongue. Small capillaries in the mouth rapidly absorb the active ingredients for quick effects that typically last awhile.Drops can easily be micro-dosed and be taken readily anywhere.Tinctures break down rapidly if exposed to heat or light. Tinctures should be kept in sealed, dark containers, kept away from heat or light.Glycerin can be used rather than alcohol but is only about 1/3 as potent for the same amount of herbs. Ingredients ¼-1 ounce/7-28g decarbed herbs per cup/240º ml* 2 ½ -5 cups/475-1180ml Grain alcohol (151 or 190 proof) or vegetable glycerin How to: Place the ingredients into your EdiWhip and place the lid on securely.
