Refer to your herbal referencesfor specific uses, especially if you are interested in using herbs for healing. Proceed with caution, but don't be afraid to learn. Even if you are not yet interested in their healing properties, remember thatherbs are food, and may be used to enhance your meals every day. And,don't forget the simple pleasure of a fragrant cupful of herb tea....
TEAS are perhaps thecommonest and easiest way to use dried herbs.
There is a whole world of herb teas, strong ones, blandones, minty ones, tangy, bitter and delicate ones. Refreshing, soothing ones.
Learn about them. Generally, use a rounded teaspoonful of dried herb per cup, or more, to taste. It is not necessary to powder herbs when using for tea. Pour boiling water over and steep 5 to 15 minutes.
Strain, add a bit of honey to taste. When using roots or woody stems, simmer for 10-20 minutes, but never simmer or boil the leaf.
