It is best made in summertime, when all the herbs are fresh but you can make it also from dried herbs any time in the year.
The combination of thyme, sage and hyssop is not only good against cough but also has other possible uses.
For example: soar throat, gingivitis, digestive problems, too much sweating, meteorism and weak menses.
Externally you can use it against skin inflammations, wounds and insect stings.
How to do it
Use fresh or dried herbs.
First cut the herbs in small pieces.
Fill the herbs into a jar until half of the jar is filled.
Pour the spirit into the jar. All the herbs should be covered.
Close the jar and put it at a warm place.
Let it stand for 10-40 days.
Shake it sometimes.
After the waiting time the tincture is ready.
Now you can filter it.
You need a second glass that should be bigger than the first glass.
And you need a filtering paper or cloth.
Cover the second glass with the filter.
Pour the tincture through the filter.
The tincture is dropping through the filter.
When the most liquid is poured out of the jar, you could put the jar with the herbs upside-down on the second jar, to make sure all the tincture flows into the second jar.
Put the jars at a save place and let them stand for several hours.
Take a dark bottle and a small funnel.
Pour the tincture through the funnel into the bottle.
Fill as much bottles you need for filling all the tincture.
Now all the tincture is filled into bottles.
Label the bottles with content and date for always knowing what is inside.
