Glycerine Pure Vegetable 32 oz
Directions: Varies according to individual need. Glycerine can used for Extracts, Syrups & other uses. We encourage you to research information & preparation that works best for you. While we cannot cover every herbal preparation below is a few common methods.
Extract – This is an herbal preparation made by boiling the herbal agent in water & evaporating the strained decoction to a desired consistency. By this process, some of the more active principals of the medicinal herb are liberated from the useless insoluble, pulpy matter (which compromises the larger share of the bulk). The solvents used are alcohol, glycerine, water, etc. Make extracts at the lowest temperature possible, because, if care is not taken, many of the light balsam oils and precious ingredients can be lost. The preparation vessel should always be tightly covered until the extract is sufficiently cooled.
Syrup – Pour one pint of boiling water over two and one-half pounds of sugar, place on hot stove & stir until the liquid begins to boil, & then instantly remove; this makes one quart of syrup, to which medicinal aids, one ounce of fluid extract, to three ounces of syrup may be added, adding two ounces of glycerine which has been mixed into two ounces of thick mucilage.
Store in a cool, dry place. Keep out of reach of children.
