Transfer some from the big bottle to the tincture bottle for ease in taking it by dropper refilling as needed.
Though not as good 2nd best is a tea for hard parts of the plant like roots, bark, hard berries etc boil the herb in distilled or steam distilled water 15 minutes (always use distilled as it is empty and absorbs more of the healing compounds) this is called a decoction.
if is is the soft parts or the plant or a powder like leaves, flowers, soft berries, fresh make an infusion by pouring boiling water over the herbs like one does a tea and letting it steep a little while
We do not really know if the herb is raw or not as not sure what the manufacturer did but to keep raw one can make sun tea or even use warm water to steep it and it might still be raw if it was to begin with.
with the average tincture dose for herbs take 2 dropperfuls (60 drops) 3 to 6 times a day.
If you weigh more than 25 pounds one say or the other you will need more drops or less figure it out using Clarks rule for dosing by weight found here
I use suspect for teas one use the standard amount in teas maybe a few tsp per cup of water 3-6 times a day.
With the tincture one can just take from the bottle or if the taste is too bad, add a tbs or so of a strong juice like grape juice to mask the taste or one can use water to dilute it
