A Tincture is a method of extracting the desired substances from a herb by soaking the herb in alcohol, ether or another volatile liquid substance for a prolonged period during which the desired substances in the herb leaches into the liquid.

After the required time (which is dependant on the herb but is normally no less than two weeks) the liquid is poured off.

Now, depending on the properties of the herb the poured off liquid may be the tincture as all requires substances and properties of the herb will be dissolved in the liquid but in some cases the liquid is discarded and the soaked herbs are pressed to obtain the tincture. the latter case only applies to those herbs that do not allow free circulation of solvents thought their pores (i.e. they will allow the liquid in but retain the liquid as well as the dissolved substances in their fibres).
