Are the Same As Tinctures"
If anyone makes the above claim, know that it most-likely isn't true.
Tinctures are made with grain alcohol, and the plant essence is extracted from
alcohol only, leaving behind many of the plant's essence, partly because many
plants, being water-based, extract partially into water as well. Elixirs
are made with high quality wines...which balances the amount of plant essence
extracted into water as well as alcohol, capturing a full spectrum of the plant,
rather than a few isolated alkaloids or components.
