Herbal infusions are a very common way to treat many conditions at home. As easy to make as an herbal tea, an infusion can be whipped up without much experience, or trouble.
An herbal infusion is a lot like making an herbal tea, with the exception that you steep an infusion longer than a tea, and may use it a little differently too.
Make an herbal infusion:
To make an herbal infusion, first measure out 1 teaspoon of dried herbs, or 1 tablespoon of fresh herbs and place them into your infuser ball or re-usable tea bag. You may also place them directly into your tea-pot for steeping, and filter the herbs out afterwards. Pour hot (almost boiling) water over the herbs, into your tea-pot or infusion pot. Cover and steep your herbs for 20 minutes to make an herbal infusion.
Herbal infusions should be made in small, 1 or 2 day batches, and used while still fresh. Most infusions will last for 3 days when put in the refrigerator, but you will have the best taste and results with a fresh made herbal infusion.
