Mother Tinctures

A Mother Tincture is typically an extract of plant or animal material dissolved in alcohol which is used as a vehicle by the process of extraction in the old method and by the process of maceration and percolation in the new method.
In Hahnemann’s method (old method) of preparation, the drug strength of various classes of drug substances is different owing to the difference in the solubility of the drugs in various solvents. To overcome this variation of drug strength. The tincture contains 1/10th part of medicinal substance i.e. a drug strength of 1/10.
Mother tinctures are the liquid preparations resulting from the extraction of suitable source material or crude drug with alcohol/water mixtures which form the starting point for the production of most homeopathic medicines. Standard percolation, maceration and squeezing techniques are used on fresh plants and succulents, while dried specimens are subjected mainly to percolation with alcohol on a column.

PERCOLATION- It is a short process, a special method used for the extraction of dried vegetable and drug substances. This process is carried out in a percolator. Mother tincture can be obtained directly. 
MACERATION- It is a long process used for the treatment of large quantities of drug substances, requiring much time for the extraction of their medicinal principles.
Substances used for maceration, include hard, gummy, mucilaginous substances and those substances having much viscid juice which prevent the rapid penetration of alcohol (menstrum) into the mass. Mother tincture cannot be obtained directly.
