It's been two weeks since I gathered some first-year teasel roots, chopped them up in the food processor and left them to soak in vodka in a dark closet. Today I filtered the roots out by straining the tincture through several layers of cheesecloth and squeezing the heck out of it. I then let the liquid filter through a coffee filter. I now have a nice, clear, brown-ish liquid.
Here is what my tincture looks like now:
Now I can begin taking 3 drops 3 times a day for six weeks (I may build up to the three drops over a few days). Here's hoping it helps my fibromyalgia.
