This stuff has a reputation as bug repellant that I’d like to test for myself. Making a very simple tincture from the yarrow I harvested and dried.

Equipment: dried yarrow, glass jars, vodka.

Tinctures are not difficult. Fill your jar with dried flowers & leaves. (if your dried plant matter is mostly powder only fill the jar halfway)

Add vodka.

Seal, shake, label and store somewhere dark for at least two weeks.

I’m planning to leave this test batch for a full month. Then strain thru cheesecloth or a coffee filter and load up a spraybottle. Very curious to see if this is going to work.

This is why I need to take chemistry.
