Making a root tincture

Bitter dock tincture

This is the first tincture I have made which consists solely of a root.  It is bitter dock (or yellow dock) whose Latin name is Rumex obtusifolius.  I love the yellow color of the roots in the menstruum.  And, yes, I do label the tinctures as I make them.
