Make Your Own Tinctures

Making Tinctures -An Example with Cayenne Tincture

NOTE: To make other Herbal Tinctures by the following Dr. Schulze Method, just substitute the Herb(s) for Cayenne Pepper.

  1. Start to make this and ANY Tincture, if possible, on a NEW Moon.
  2. Take a Quart Canning Jar and fill it 1/4 FULL with DRIED Cayenne Peppers, getting the HOTTEST ones (i.e. - Habanero, African Bird, Serrano, Jalapeno - 90,000+ Heat Units), that you can obtain.
  3. Add enough 50% Grain Alcohol (100 Proof Vodka) to the Cayenne Peppers (powdered, using a Blender or Grinder) to just COVER them.
  4. Use enough FRESH Cayenne Peppers, that you can blend with 50% Grain Alcohol (100 Proof Vodka) to turn the Mixture into an Apple Sauce-Like Consistency.
  5. Add this Mixture to the 1st Mixture, filling up the Canning Jar 3/4 FULL.
  6. Fill up the rest of the Canning Jar with MORE 50% Grain Alcohol (100 Proof Vodka).
  7. Shake it as MANY times as possible, during the Day.
  8. Let this Mixture SIT, until the following FULL Moon (15-16 Days), but OPTIMALLY until the following NEW Moon (28-29 Days)!
  9. Strain this Mixture through an UNBLEACHED Coffee Filter.
  10. Bottle the RESULTING Tincture.


Part EQUALS Volume, NOT Weight in this Tincture Method. If using 95% Alcohol (190 Proof), then DILUTE in half with Distilled Water. Modify this procedure by using DRIED Herbs ONLY, if FRESH Herbs are NOT AVAILABLE, and when making other Herbal Tinctures also.

Also if you want to make a SUPER-POTENT Tincture (i.e. - Cayenne Pepper & Lobelia Seed Pod), then allow the Mixture to sit for a FULL 3 Months!
