How To Make a Herbal Infusion
What you'll need
MEASURES: Use 25g (1oz) of dried herb to 500ml (16 fl oz) of boiling water
DOSE: One cup of approx. 150 ml (5 fl oz), 3 times a day
Place your herb in a teapot. Once you’ve poured in the boiling water, leave to infuse for up to ten minutes.
For the simplest preparation, pour boiling water over your herbs (see quantities below) to extract their properties.
To remove all the smaller bits, pour the infusion through a strainer or sieve, into a cup. If you have any left over from the first drink, pour the remainder into a jug or a stoppered jar and place in the fridge. This will last for about three days.
