I have a questions regarding tinctures. Amanda Howe mentions on several occasions that she would not suggest an alcohol based remedy for some one with a dry constitution. Is it possible to get some elaboration on this? If wanting to use a tincture, would using a lower concentrate of alcohol be better? Are there situations when it would be inadvisable to recommend a tincture to someone with a dry constitution – i.e. someone with poor water retention/dehydration? Just looking for some clarification. Also, while on the topics of alcohol, what types of alcohol would be recommended for use, this is not clear to me. Thanks for your help!
