Herbs extracted in alcohol for medicinal purposes


Salams, I would just like to ask if we are able to use herbs extracted in alcohol for medicinal purposes. The amount of alcohol used is unknown. Please could somebody advise me?


audhu billah mina ‘sh-shaytani ‘r-rajeem,

Bismillahi ‘r-Rahmani ‘r-Raheem,

wa `alaykum salam,

I do not think that these would be allowable if the alcohol is ingested.  Check with your natural medicine practitioner regarding alternatives to alcohol such as water extraction.  And Allah knows best.
