Put the jewelweed parts in the Mason jar so it is halfway to three quarters full.
Add in the leaves or stems of any of the optional plants that you have also chosen to use.
Cover the natural material with the vodka or the rubbing alcohol. Use only enough to cover the plant parts thoroughly. Leave a quarter of an inch headspace in the Mason jar.
Seal the Mason jar with a lid and ring firmly.
Place the jar in a warm and sunny place for a minimum of 21 days.
Shake the jar thoroughly up to three times per day, each day.
Open the jar and strain away the plant parts through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth – keeping the liquid.
