Enter the volume of the herb and the total volume of the tincture into the calculator to determine the tincture ratio. This calculator can also evaluate any of the variables given the others are known.

## Tincture Ratio Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the tincture ratio.

TR = (VH / VT) * 100

Variables:

• TR is the tincture ratio (%)
• VH is the volume of the herb (ml)
• VT is the total volume of the tincture (ml)

To calculate the tincture ratio, divide the volume of the herb by the total volume of the tincture. Multiply the result by 100 to get the tincture ratio in percentage.

## What is a Tincture Ratio?

A tincture ratio refers to the proportion of herbs to alcohol or other solvent used in the process of making a tincture. This ratio is crucial as it determines the concentration and potency of the final product. For instance, a 1:5 tincture ratio means that for every one part of herb, five parts of solvent are used. The type of herb and the desired strength often dictate the appropriate tincture ratio.

## How to Calculate Tincture Ratio?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Tincture Ratio.

1. First, determine the volume of the herb (VH) in milliliters (ml).
2. Next, determine the total volume of the tincture (VT) in milliliters (ml).
3. Next, use the formula TR = (VH / VT) * 100 to calculate the Tincture Ratio.
4. Finally, calculate the Tincture Ratio.
5. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem :

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

volume of the herb (VH) = 50 ml

total volume of the tincture (VT) = 200 ml
