Making Herbal Teas ~ Notes for a standard infusion:

The standard way to make an infusion is to pour a cup of boiling water over the herb(s) to be infused, let it stand for 5 minutes, strain it, and drink it.
Fresh plants - When the recipe refers to fresh plants to be used, a 1/4 cup fresh herb is used, following the method above.
Dried herbs - When the recipe refers to using dried herbs, use 2 teaspoons of the herb when making a tea.
Bark or seeds - Should the recipe call for bark or seeds to be used, use 2 teaspoons of seeds or 1 tablespoon of bark.
Sweetening your tea infusion - sweeten your herbal drink with honey, nectar and a dash of fresh lemon juice to enhance the taste.

Only use the herbal material if you are 100% sure that it's really the herb in question.

As a general rule, do not continuously drink the same infusion for more than 10 continuous days.
***Use for ten day-then skip 5 days.
