Dr. Petley only uses the highest quality herbs and plants in his extractions. His preference for Maine-grown, organic plants contributes to his selection for alcohol when extracting herbs and plants.
"Having access to higher proof alcohol is critical for making tinctures at home," Dr. Petley explains. "Standard vodka is inferior for extracting many constituents, but with Culinary Solvent, I am never limited to the herbs I can extract."
