How would I make a nourishing herbal infusion? 

  • Put 1 ounce of the dried herb in a glass quart canning jar. 
  • Pour boiling water into the jar to cover the herb and fill it up to the very top. 
  • Screw on the lid and let sit for between 4 and 10 hours. 
  • Then strain out the herb – I pour the whole jar, herb and all, into a mesh reusable produce bag, over a bowl or sauce pan.  Then squeeze out  all of the remaining liquid from the herb that's in the bag. 
  • Pour all of the liquid back into the canning jar and refrigerate. 
  • Drink within 2 to 2 ½ days. 
  • The herb should then be thrown in your yard or garden to finish it's life cycle!
