The ratio 1:2 means that 2 milliliters of the final extract are equivalent to 1 gram (or 1000 mg) of the dried herb. This ratio is about the strongest that can realistically be obtained. Tinctures labeled 1:1 are rarely possible to actually make, depending on the herb. Concentrations of 1:2 are much more potent than taking the same dried herb in capsule form.
I generally recommend that my anxious patients take 5 milliliters of 1:2 chamomile tincture, twice a day.
