Plants (Herbs) constitute the major source of homoeopathic medicines. Next in order are chemicals and animals. The therapeutically active ingredients in many cases are extracted in alcohol-water mixture of varying percentages of alcohol depending on the solubility, stability and extractability of the potential ingredients. Such alcoholic extracts are called "Mother Tinctures".
Mother Tinctures are the starting point for dilutions. Authenticity of the raw materials, age, collection, cleaning and drying methods, basic percentage of active ingredients, the quality of alcohol and water, and the percentage used, method used (Percolation or Maceration), the strength of phytochemicals, filteration, bacterial counts are some of the important factors responsible for good quality mother tinctures. These are meticulously followed at Schwabe India, and the distilled and filtered mother tinctures are stored in rooms fitted with expensive explosion resistant and flame-proof electrical fittings of proper intensities to avoid any accident and protect the phytochemicals content in the tinctures.
