Making Herbal Infusions
I love to use herbs on a daily basis to help enhance health. To do that, I often make a strong herbal infusion that is steeped for several hours. What this does is leech out the vitamins and minerals from the herb so that it can be more effective.
You can't just use any herb to do this. My favorites are:
You can use others, such as mullein, but those are the main ones. I have detail instructions on how to make an herbal infusion at ehow.com. In fact, I have a whole collection of herbal articles (over 60 of them) on the site so you may want to stop and look around. :)
