How to Make a Powerful Mushroom Double-Extraction Tincture

how to make mushroom double extraction tincture

Mushrooms are incredible healers! Many of them grow on tree parts that have been injured to nurse them back to health. Just like with trees, mushrooms help our bodies become stronger and more ready to face any challenges. They are great endocrine enhancers, lymphatic system movers, and nervous system balancers.

Recently, I made a chaga mushroom tincture and wanted to share with you how I made it because it requires an extra step needed in mushroom herbal extractions. This step is not usually needed for other herbs.ย Because many of mushrooms’ healing components are water-soluble but not alcohol-soluble, I did a double extraction, first with alcohol and then with water. Here is how I did it!

Alcohol Extraction

โœจย Cut up fresh or dried mushrooms and place them in a glass jar.

โœจย Cover the mushrooms with at least 40% alcohol such as vodka, brandy, or rum.

โœจย Shake the jar every day for the next 30 – 75 days. Leave the jar in a place that you see every day so that you remember to shake it. I like to start my tinctures on a new moon and finish it on a full moon to take advantage of the moon’s power.

โœจย When you are ready to make your tincture, take a strainer, cheese cloth, or a nut bag and strain the mushrooms to extract the liquid containing the precious healing properties.

โœจย Save the mushrooms and store the extract in a glass jar.

Water Extraction

๐ŸŒธย Place the mushrooms you used in the alcohol extraction into a pot and pour enough water over them so that the level is a bit above the mushrooms.

๐ŸŒธย Boil the water and reduce the heat to low, placing the lid on top of the pot.

๐ŸŒธย Make a decoction by simmering the mushrooms for about one hour so that the water-soluble components can concentrate in the water.

๐ŸŒธย Let the mushroom decoction cool down.

๐ŸŒธย Strain the decoction and save the precious liquid.

๐ŸŒธย Combine the alcohol and water extracts together and store them in a glass jar in a dark and cool place.

Plant a Fairy Garden!

IMG_20180406_203738

I get excited every day to see how my little fairy garden is growing! ย I planted some of my favorite flowers and herbs of different colors and aromas at different times so that the garden can be in bloom for a long time.

I encourage you to plant a little garden with your favorite herbs, fruits, veggies, or flowers, even when working with a small space such as a window sill.

Plants are as alive as we are, having their own physical, astral, emotional, mental, etheric, celestial, and causal bodies. They communicate with us and give us hints about how they can help us heal. Just look at the beautiful auras plants emit, that can be seen with the naked eye!

Like Kisses from the Sun: Soothing Calendula

IMG_20180328_120155

Calendula fields forever!ย Calendula is excellent for soothing the skin, topically and internally. You can extract the medicinal properties by infusing calendula in oil and applying it topically or internally by using the oil on food. And you can always eat calendula (in salads, as a garnish, blended in sauces, soups, or dips…) and make a gorgeous tasty tea!

Practicing Self-Love with Pure Sunshine Tea

IMG_20180312_162333I discovered the beauty of the ginger/white tea combination serendipitously at a coffee shop in Berlin, when I tried to spice up white tea with another herb that the coffee shop had on the menu – ginger. The combination turned out to be so delicious that I had to recreate it with a few exciting twists! ๐Ÿ˜‰

ย fresh ginger (thinly sliced)
ย white tea
ย cinnamon
ย pinch of black pepper
ย coconut milk (preferably home-made)

ย Add fresh ginger slices to water, bring to a boil, and simmer for 15 minutes.

ย Mix cinnamon and black pepper into the hot water.

ย Pour over white tea and infuse for about 10 minutes.

ย Strain the herbs and add coconut milk.

ย Stir and enjoy!

How to Quickly Make a Healing Skin Oil from Dried Herbs

IMG_20180310_154517

How do you make a quick medicinal skin oil in the winter when fresh herbs aren’t readily available? It’s so easy, especially if you have some dried plantain, chickweed, violet, or dandelion ready from last year’s harvest (you can also purchase these dried herbs).

ย Take equal parts of plantain, chickweed, violet, or dandelion (aerial parts – any combination you like), crunch them up into smaller pieces, and rehydrate the herbs with water.

ย Drain excess water and place the herbs into a mortar.

ย Add olive oil to the herbs and extract as much medicine as possible with a pestle.

ย You can use the oil right away or infuse it with the herbs overnight for higher potency.

ย Use cheese cloth to extract all the medicinal oil from the herbs and store it in a glass dropper bottle. (It is best to use the oil within one week as it can start growing mold because of the high water content.)
