I have been takin pine pollen for a couple of months now and have noticed a great effect. Has anyone made their own tincture from the powder?
I'd be interested in knowing too. Course I don't even know which kind of 'Pine' tree this stuff is supposed to come from.
I get mine from Etsy- The Rural Apothecary $40 for 4 oz. Expensive but it lasts. https://www.etsy.com...-harvested-from
They say "All of my pollen is tinctured in 100 proof grain alcohol.
I tincture my pollen for no less than 3 full months, up to a full 6 months. Before my pollen is tinctured, it goes through a quick freeze to crack the cell walls as well, again allowing more of the essential nutrients to tincture into the alcohol.
I tincture in all glass containers, no plastic or metal is involved in the tincture process.
My tincture is 1:1, I use half pine pollen to the same volume of alcohol to produce a strong tincture. I decided on 1 to 1 ratio to make a stronger tincture that gives more doses per 4 oz bottle."
Pine Pollen might need special knowledge. I think I'll try to make a batch of Ginger Turmeric Pepper tincture. Grind'em up, maybe leave the little pepper balls whole, fresh and sugared ginger, and leave'em soak in 100 proof vodka for a month or two, giving the small mason jar a swirl every now and then.
