Hello! I am new to herbal medicine, putting it into real life that is! I've been reading and studying about it for years and decided to try some vinegar tinctures. I started a dandelion root tincture in Apple Cider Vinegar last August. Through life happening, I forgot about it and just recently found it. It is a light yellow, with a small layer of cloudiness on the bottom that mixes through the jar when I shake it up. So it's been sitting steeping with the roots since August, and I am nervous to start using it. Can I ask your thoughts about it?

Hello Madi — does it smell all right? A nose test can give you an indication of whether or not to use it. I would try straining, then letting the strained liquid stand indisturbed to see if the liquid goes clear.

I made a Usnea and ACV tincture and it is very cloudy. It is extremely hard to tell if there is a bad smell due to the strong ACV smell. It is almost ready to strain and package. I'm just not sure if it has gone bad.

Hi Tessa — has the scent changed underway? That would be a good indicator — always a good idea to do a regular nose test ☺️
