Fill half of a glass jar with dried herbs and pour in vodka until the jar is nearly full, leaving a bit of room for the herb to swell a bit. Seal tightly and let it rest for 4-6 weeks at room temperature, shaking it every few days. After 4-6 weeks, strain the herb and store the tincture in an amber bottle. At the first sign of a cold take half a teaspoon 3 to 4 times daily.
