Heather Luna has been making medicine for 30 years. At the beginning of her career she made lots of mistakes. She discovered that putting fresh plants into 40% alcohol, like vodka, results in tinctures that can grow bacteria and potentially make your clients sick. She found that herbs high in tannins can form a gunky residue as the alkaloids precipitate out of solution over time. Her guidance can help you to avoid these common mistakes.
