After reading the posts you recommended, do you think if I used any of the 4 oz pkgs which weighs 120 grams and use 1:5 ratio. Would I use 600 grams of 100 proof vodka or 50% alcohol or 2 1/2 cups and mix together? Would this work for all of Doc s formulas that I previously listed? I am almost 72 and my math skills aren t as sharp now. Thanks for answering my post. :yahoo:

For a 1:5 ratio tincture add 1 gram of dried herb to 5 cc vodka. So...

4 ounces = 113 grams
113 X 5 = 565
So add 565 ml which is 2.4 cups. So, yeah, if you added 2.5 cups of vodka to your 4 ounce powder it'd be close enough and lots easier to measure. :)

Let is sit two weeks and shake it every day.
Dosing for adults on a tincture is usually 20-30 drops 2-3 times daily.

Holler if you have other questions.
