Decocting Herbs

If you need to cook your herbs, here’s how you do it:

  1.  Soak the contents of the bag of herbs in 4 cups of cold water for 20 minutes.
  2.  After soaking, bring the herbs to a boil in the water.  Then, simmer for 20 – 25 minutes.
  3.  After simmering, strain off the liquid into a container, for example, a glass jar.
  4.  Return the herbs to the pot and add 4 cups of fresh cold water.
  5.  Boil and simmer again for 20 – 25 minutes.
  6.  After cooking the second time, add this second decoction to the first.  Store the resulting concentrate in the fridge.
  7.  Drink one portion as a tea mornings and evenings for eight days, adding hot water to each.
