Medicinal Herbs

The body has the amazing ability to heal itself if the right conditions are provided.

We believe in the restorative and healing properties of Herbs as there are thousands of years of practical use of herbs for medicinal purposes.

We do not recommend people stop using their normal medication but we would like to bring about an awareness that alternative and complimentary therapies can be effective in the treatment of the overall person and not just the disease.

TheTwo Most Popular Methods

A hot infusion is one of the simplest ways to prepare most dried herbs for use as a tea. To prepare each hot infusion, take one heaped teaspoonful of the herbs and pour one cup of boiling water over them. Cover the cup with a lid or saucer. Allow the mixture to steep for 3-5 minutes and strain before using.

A decoction is the method used for herbs such as roots, bark, twigs and berries. To prepare a decoction, take one heaped teaspoonful of dried herbs and place them in a saucepan with one cup of cold water. Cover and let sit over night. The next day bring the mixture to the boil then simmer, covered, for 10-15 minutes (20-25 min. if the roots are very hard), take off heat and strain before drinking, or have it iced.

Most herb roots, bark, twigs & berries are very bitter. To make them more palatable, try adding a sliced lime or orange, a small piece of cinnamon stick, a clove, some fennel seeds or anise seeds or dill seeds (what ever your taste buds like) during the simmering process. If you like it sweeter add some honey or sugar while mixture is still warm. These tisanes are often tastier when iced.
