Infusion or Tea – Use 1 teaspoon of cut herb per cup of distilled water. Bring water to a boil, remove from the heat source, then add the applicable amount of herb to the water. Cover & allow to steep for at least 20 minutes (longer for stronger tea). Strain the herb & let stand until cool enough to drink.
Decoction – Cover roots, barks & other hard herbal material with water, an ounce of the herb to a pint and a half of water. Bring to a boil & gently simmer for about 20-30 minutes. Drain off the liquid while hot & press the herbs to make sure that the decoction is fully extracted. Decoctions are strong. Take as directed.
Fomentation – Soak a piece of gauze, Turkish towel or similar porous material in the infusion or decoction needed. Sometimes hot Apple Cider Vinegar is used. Cool until the material is just bearable. Cover with plastic or oil cloth to prevent the liquid from soaking bed clothes, etc. Keep damp & change periodically.
