INFUSIONS:

An infusion is exactly as if you are making a cup of tea! A thumb sprig of herb material is placed in a cup of boiled water and left to steep for five minutes.  Honey can be added and then sipped liked a tea.

There are many herbs that can be taken on a daily basis, if preferred 3 times a day but there are other herbs that cannot be taken over a long period of time such as the Artemisia’s.

Melissa officinalis

Lemon balm is an anti-anxiety herb and can be taken several times a day.  It is a member of the mint family although it is not invasive but does self seed itself.  The taste of the tea is a gentle lemon flavour and really does help towards stress and anxiety.
