Solid extracts are made from liquid extracts. These are mostly made by commercial manufacturers and are intended for ultimate use in tablets or capsules. For the home herbalist solid extracts are probably too difficult and costly to make.

Solid extracts are made by reducing the liquid in liquid extracts even further. This is done with relatively simple (but again too expensive for the home herbalist) equipment that reduces the liquid (normally water or alcohol depending on the method of initial extraction) by evaporating in a vacuum.

The first stage is a syrupy concentrated liquid called a Soft Extract. In many cases the process is halted at this stage. Soft extracts are sometimes marketed in that form but are mostly sold as gelcaps where the liquid is encapsulated in a gel capsule.

Further evaporation will result in a solid which is then pulverized and used in tablet form or sold as a powder.
