  • In medicine, a tincture is an alcoholic extract (e.g. of a herb) or solution of a non-volatile substance (e.g. of iodine, mercurochrome.) Solutions of volatile substances were called spirits, although that name was also given to several other materials obtained by distillation, even when they did not include alcohol.
  • A tincture is an herbal preparation made with alcohol or distilled water and dried or fresh herbs. It is taken into the body by mixing with tea, water or juice. One teaspoon taken up to three times daily should be the proper dosage for any herbal tincture. A tincture is the most effective method of using herbal medicines.
  • The alcohol, glycerin or vinegar used in a tincture added stability to the concentrated chemicals found in the herbs. Although hundreds of herbs and plants could survive the tincture process, the most common tincture formulas involved chemicals like laudanum, mecurochrome and iodine. 
  • For homeopathic pharmaceuticals prepared from botanical origin, the fresh plant is cleaned, finely chopped and mixed with the appropriate quantity of ethyl alcohol and water as specified in the HPUS/RS. This mass then is macerated for 14 days to 28 days with daily stirring to maximize exposure of the plant material to the menstruum (liquid used for extraction). The liquid is decanted from the plant material. The plant material then is pressed to extract all menstruum. Finally, the liquid is filtered to yield the tincture.
  • Tinctures are tested against quality control specifications in the HPUS/RS, including organoleptic and chemical identity tests, dry residue and alcohol content determinations, as well as positive identification by thin layer chromatography (TLC). Once manufactured to HPUS/RS standards, the tincture is stored in a temperature controlled environment protected from light. The tincture most often has the homeopathic potency of 1X, indicating that the tincture contains 1 part by weight of the fresh plant material  in 10 parts by volume of the completed solution.
  • Raw materials for the production of homeopathic products can be either natural or synthetic. Raw materials of vegetable, animal or human origin can be used either fresh or in dried form. Fresh plant material is macerated in ethanol to produce a mother tincture. For raw materials that are of vegetable, animal or human origin, the mother tincture is the homeopathic stock. 
  • The homeopathic medicines manufacturing units are bracketed in the country within the over all ambit of drug and pharmaceutical industry. No separate slot has been given to homeopathy, biochemic, ayurvedic and unani medicines either in the drug & pharmaceutical sector or industrywise sector. The Indian drug and pharmaceutical industry is seen as a notable performer. The output of the industry in 1994-95 is valued at Rs. 9656 crores comprising of Rs. 2045 crores of bulk drugs and Rs. 7611 crores of formulations. The industry's export at Rs. 2800 crores constituted 29% of total output and at the same time certain essential life saving drugs valued at Rs. 852 crores have been imported in the country during the same period.
  • Mother Tincher is classified as a bulk drug. Its over all output for the last 5 years has remained at Rs. l45 lakhs only out of the total requirements of around Rs. 33 crores. The over all demand growth rate for homeopathic and bio chemic medicines has been around 16% per annum except for mother tincher for which the demand growth rate has been around 39%.
