How To Make A Pine Pollen Tincture
Firstly, why make a tincture?
The answer is simple, in a tincture, the active components and nutrients in pine pollen could be far easier and quicker to be absorbed by the body giving an almost instant effect as they enter the blood stream instantly.
Equipment And Ingredients Required
- Pine pollen powder, preferably the high-quality product like this one
- Alcohol, preferably organic and 80 proof (40% Alcohol) (yes vodka is fine!)
- A glass container with a lid, large enough to store your pine pollen. An old reused jam jar is fine, recommended to store and keep your herbal products ultra fresh is an ultraviolet Miron glass jar. DO NOT USE a plastic container. Alcohol is a solvent and you will draw out contaminants like BPA and Xenoestrogens from the plastic.
- A Coffee filter.
- A funnel.
- Dropper bottles, you can reuse old ones.
Put your pine pollen powder contents into the glass jar and add the alcohol to just above the level of the pine pollen powder. You can use less alcohol, the less used will result in a stronger more potent tincture. It all depends on what you want.
Generally, you want the alcohol level to a bit, a little bit higher than the herbs. Then mix the pine pollen powder with a spoon until it forms a pasty liquid like substance in the jar. If it is not forming a pasty liquid like substance add more alcohol.
Ideally, you want something that resembles yellowish or off yellow like slime. if it is too thick a paste add in more alcohol as mentioned.
At this point, you will need to leave the mixture in a cool, dark dry place for 15 days to allow the alcohol to extract the nutrients from the powder.
If you leave the mixture for longer, for 30 days, for example, it is of no negative effect on the tincture that you are making. Only the tincture will be stronger due to extracting more nutrients.
It is during this waiting period that the alcohol draws out the hormones and nutrients from the pine pollen powder.
Once the formulation that you have premade is ready you will notice that the alcohol and the pine pollen have separated. This is because the alcohol is less dense than the powder.
Do not shake the mixture!
Your tincture is now very much ready to test! Using a dropper, draw the alcohol off of the top and test it by putting a few droplets below your tongue and holding it there for around a minute before swallowing. Then try again!
You should notice an effect of the pine pollen tincture.
Now it is time to separate the mixture of the pine pollen powder and the alcohol. Simply use the Coffee Filter and create a funnel and pour the pine pollen powder into the funnel so that the coffee filter filters the alcohol and the powder mixture leaving you with a nice clean potent pine pollen tincture for you to use and enjoy.
With the sludge left over from filtering, do try to use it by squeezing what you can of it through the filter as that still contains some alcohol and powerful nutrients, get every last bit out of it.
Decant the tincture into a dropper bottle using your funnel and store in a cool dry dark place
BONUS TIP: The sludge, if you can’t extract the max out of it, it is still useful as it contains nutrients, you can reuse it in your next tincture mix by, doing what I like to do and allow it dry out and then grind it back down to a powder for reuse in your next tincture mix or, alternatively as a powder to add to your smoothies.
Waste not, want not I say!
