Method of Application of Herbs

‘Herbs relieve indigestion most effectively when taken in the form of teas or warm beverages’ (Irritable Bowel Syndrome Relief, n.d.).

To make the above infusion, take one teaspoon of dried herb to a cup of boiling water. To make a decoction, use one ounce of broken down dried root or bark to just over a pint of water (Mabey, 1988, p.193). Bring to boil, cover, and simmer for ten to fifteen minutes. Strain the decoction while it is still hot (Mabey, 1988, p.135).
