Herbal 101 – How to make a Cold Infusion

A Cold Infusion is a way to prepare herbs when the effect you want is nourishment & gentle support over time.

  • Some herbs release their nutrients & actions best when soaked in tepid water for 8-12 hours.
  • This is particularly true for those which help the body replenish minerals.
  • Here I have a mineral support mix Osteomin that I often serve to clients at the clinic.
  • Place 2 tablespoons of dried herb into a glass jar.

 

Great herbs for cold infusions:

  • Nettle (deficiencies, bone & urinary support)
  • Raspberry (uterine tonic)
  • Wild Yam (women’s reproductive tonic)
  • Sage (which I recommend for wet-type hot flashes)

Others medicinals you might use: Echinacea, Ginseng, Red Clover, Mullein, Marshmallow/Hollyhock

Herbal 101 – How to make a Cold Infusion

How to take your herbs,  Making medicines, herbs

Pour filtered water over the herbs, and leave to soak 8-12 hours.

Typically I do this at the end of the evening and leave overnight so it’s ready in the morning for drinking all day.

The exact recipe is 1 part herb (by weight) to 32 parts herb (by volume). But it’s not important to be really exact with this type of herbal preparation.

Strain & warm before drinking. Drink regularly over months for effect.
