How to Make Your Own Herbal Infusions


Step 1  Boil 1 quart of spring or filtered water in a tea kettle.

Step 2 Remove the hot water from the heat.

Step 3 Add 1 ounce or so of the single herb of your choice in a large mason jar (1 quart
size).
Step 4 (optional) Add stevia or raw honey to taste (the infusion is more beneficial with no
sweetener).
Step 5 Pour the hot water in the jar. Be sure that it’s almost overflowing so that there’s
no air in your jar.
Step 6 Place the cap on the jar.
Step 7 Allow it to sit undisturbed for the allotted amount of time

 

Roots/Bark: 8 hours
Leaves: 4 hours
Flowers: 2 hours

WARNING: Herbal infusions can cause adverse reactions if you are taking prescription
medication. Also, it’s a good idea to research the herbs you’re using to determine
whether or not they should be taken on an empty stomach.
