Are you not sure what a tincture is? It simply means that alcohol is used to extract the medicinal alkaloids from the healing plant. Alcohol provides the strongest extraction + also allows for a longer shelf life of about 2 years. There are other liquids or "menstrums" you can use to extract medicine from plants, like apple cider vinegar, food grade glycerin, even honey. These would not be considered tinctures though as they do not use any alcohol. Hope that helps you to understand a little more about herbal medicines.
