You may pulverize them and add them to meals, yogurt, smoothies, and oatmeal or brew a tea by following the directions below.
1-3 teaspoons of loose tea (or 3g up to 3 times) daily. If more than one herbal mixture is consumed at the same period of time, reduce the amount of tea accordingly.
When herbs are used for a long period of time, it is suggested to consume a herbal remedy with a ratio of 3 to 1. For example, if you choose to take it for 3 weeks, have a one-week pause, if it is taken for a 30-day period, have a 10-day pause, etc. That does not apply to herbs and fruits that have a laxative effect.
◉ Herbs and botanicals should be stored in airtight glass containers -in a cool, dark, and dry area- to preserve their flavor and properties.
◉ Before adding a new herbal remedy or supplement to your daily routine, you should consult with a medical doctor or holistic health practitioner.
