Here you can see pictures of the process of making a spagyric tincture from safflower. In this process I let the mixture with the spirit of wine digest for a week on a warm plate (40 celsius). The spirit of red wine I use I distilled myself by the rules of the art. I don’t use everclear, brandy or whatsoever. In my humble opinion using the spirit of wine what is distilled by oneself is the best. Energetically its much more potent. Many people neglect the use of self distilled spirit of wine and wonder why their tinctures are less potent. Its the slow process instead of the use of the Soxlet extractor. I really like the beauty of the colors and I have to say that in reality the colors are much more intense.
