Valerian Root, extraction help
    #3715886 - 02/01/05 10:49 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Hey

A while ago I read an extraction that was posted here by someone. They were using an old apothecary manual which instructed extracting in water and alcohol, and then mixing with sugar so it would keep. I had this saved as a bookmark but it got lost while I was obtaining materials. I've been sitting here for the last hour or so looking through threads.
The only one that is close to it is Valeriana officinalis tincture tek

This was posted a while ago. Maybe 5 months. Can someone help me find it? I'd be very grateful. Thanks.

There is some information on preserving botanicals with sugar here.

Steam distillation sounds interesting. What sort of equipment would be involved? I'll check it out. Thanks.

You're just passing hot steam through your plant matter and condensing the steam out the otherside. Oil of rosemary is made this way.

A quick way to make a derelict steam still could be connecting some tubing to a pressure cooker, and packing the tubing with valerian plant matter, and letting the steam pass through it and drip out the tube into a glass.
