There is a way to infuse the alcohol tincture into oil using a double boiler@Root @STIGGY I meant mixing directly into a bottle. Yesterday I tried mixing with olive oil, but oil and alcohol doesn't mix - it's like a water and oil. So no go. Any other options? Just want that is mixed in bottle, not then in coke/coffee or whatever. So I can put directly into mouth without additional mixing.
And Root, do you have recipe for hard candies and gelatine gummies? Maybe I try this too.
Figuring the strength of the final product can be tricky.If you start with equal amounts of oil to tincture the results should be close to waht you started with.
To infuse tincture in oil I have used a double boil, ( matal pan on top of pot of boiling water)
place oil and tincture in top metal heat pan and start to boil water.
As the oil heats up the alcohol will start to burn off ( Do not do on open flame gas stove and in well ventilated area alcohol is a vapor and will cause fire if exposed to open flame) you will start to see bubbling off of the alcohol at 1st the bubbles will be larger and as it reduces the bubbles will become tiny and almost come to a stop.(tiny bubbles on side)
That is when all alcohol is now evaporated off and only the infused oil remains.
I use coconut oil to do my transfers into.
This oil can be used as a tincture under the tongue or for making edies to use in place of oil in recipe.
