Reverie, please define your understanding of ALCOHOL. That would be important for me/us to know before addressing your comment.

Donnay, glycerin is a very mild form of alcohol. I do not believe it does as good a job at extraction as Vodka. It certainly does not have the shelf life of your typical alcohol extract: one year or so in the fridge.

Double extraction is a personal preference and is used to boost the concentration of the herb. I do not think it is required.

Thank you for responding. I agree with you.

Another quick question:

With all the mushroom craze presently trending, which mushroom is, in your opinion, the best for immune system?

The only mushroom I have ever messed with is Chaga. That is only because someone sent HGH some and I have tinctured it. I have not ever used it or have studied it much.
