When herbs and plants are mixed with a solvent to extract their herbal properties, a herbal extract is produced. Typically, alcohol, glycerin, vinegar or water or their combinations are used as solvents to preserve the properties of the herbs. Herbal extracts can be made from both fresh and dried herbs depending on their maturity time and active state. The extracts can be from the plant, its seeds or fruits.
