  8. Place the bottle next to a source of heat (stove, heating …) or in the sun and wait for 14 days. Heat will allow the herb to soak well and release beneficial substances. Then simply pour the extract into a smaller container and drink 10 – 15 drops diluted with water every day. The tincture should last for 1 to 3 years, but we recommend that you prepare a new bottle every year.
