Zach Royer, C.L.P.I., O.M.
Zach is an independent researcher, healer, author, explorer and director of Hawaii's premier anomalous research organization, Kahuna Research Group, where he has spent the last five years at the forefront of exploring Hawaii's secrets & mysteries, and also making medicines with the plethora of Hawaiian herbs. His work has been featured on the Travel Channel, in the Journal of Anomalous Sciences, as well as in numerous travel magazines and on many different websites over the last few years.
On this episode he shares with Claire, Jason and Sandra the benefits of using herbal tinctures and how to make them yourself in just four simple steps.
Step 1) Place your fresh/dried herb of choice inside a glass mason jar approximately 3/4 full. (Your herbs will compact once liquid is added so you may be able to add more)
Step 2) Add alcohol to jar until almost full. Leave room to be able to shake. (Vodka is ideal for it's nearly odorless and extracts both alcohol and water soluble compounds.) Seal the jar with lid and store in a cool place.
Step 3) Shake your jar(s) daily anywhere from two weeks to 6 months. Longer=Stronger.
Step 4) After at least two weeks, you can bottle your extract and start using it. Using any kitchen strainer or new nylon stocking you can separate alcohol from herb at which point you are ready to bottle it.
Bottles: I found the local co-op (Island Naturals on Hawaii Island) to have perfect 2oz. & 4oz. dropper bottles which you can see in the video.
