Dual-step tinctures, also referred to double-step tinctures, are when a second step is added to single-step tinctures where the herbs are used again to produce a liquid extract that contains more water soluble nutrients and constituents.
The second step of dual-step tinctures may simple use the marc a second time without additional technique, or also apply heat, if necessary, and/or use any other type of extraction method or equipment to extract a greater amount of constituents and nutrients.
Making dual-step tinctures can also be done by an easy do-it-yourself process for homemade tinctures by reusing the marc a second time. This is done by using low ABV in both the first and second steps, since the purpose of dual-step is pull additional nutrients and constituents that didn't become extracted due to their saturation in the first step.
Types of Dual-Step Tinctures
All of the following types of herbs will increase in potency when making a dual-step tincture, oftentimes because they are either nutrient-dense and/or they contain heavy molecular weight constituents, such as polysaccharides and ginsenosides.
- Superfood Berries
- Medicinal Berries
- Medicinal Mushrooms
