Herbal Tea

Tea-based herbal medicine treatment is a very common type of herbal preparation because it can be prepared by anyone, anywhere. If you have the right herbs to be used, all you need to do is to boil them and with simple additives such as a small amount sugar, you’ll have a tea that smells good and tastes just right. Even kitchen ingredients could be developed as tea. Chamomile is very popular ingredients that could be used as tea. Chamomile tea could be used to cleanse the intestines.

Herbal Capsules

if tea is not for you, one of the easier alternatives is to take it as a capsule. These are often used for herbal products that are bitter and the user is not comfortable with its taste. However, the disadvantage of capsules is that the bitter taste actually has a purpose. When the body feels the bitterness of the herbal product, it reacts in a way that the herb medication could be easily ingested to the body.

Herbal Decoction

This type of herbal preparation is much like tea but decoction is geared towards the harder ingredients. Roots, barks and stems from the herbal remedies could be boiled for minutes and it could be prepared as a tea or cold drinks. With decoction, you can prepare more and even use it for days. The wood and other hard parts of the herbal or natural product should be chopped so that maximum concoction could be extracted.

Herbal Infusion

Another type of tea but with a twist. Preparing tea may just be boiling herbs but you can create something more potent through infusion. Instead of having one herb ingredient, you can create tea with different types of ingredients. The tricky part here is to determine the percentage of herbs to create a perfect infusion so you need a weighing scale. The herbs should be placed inside a clean cloth and in a glass bowl, pour hot water and let it stay covered for 20 to 30 minutes and the water in the bowl could be a great healing treatment.

Herbal Preparation with Syrup

This is one of the most interesting preparations of herbal product today. It hides the undesirable taste of herbs and what’s left is the sweet smell of syrup. The raw herbal product is boiled with only one quart and it is kept boiled until it is reduced to a pint. From that concoction, two tablespoons of honey is added. If you are preparing this personally, you will have to wait at least a month to ensure the blend of syrup with the herbal medicines is possible.

Herbal Extracts

The most potent type of preparation as recommended dosage of extract is  only in drops. You don’t need to prepare them as tea and the usually come in capsules so that you can use them. There are formulas that you can look up online and books but this is highly complicated and dangerous for you to make yourself. But their potency is there and if you want something small and effective, you can go for herbal extracts.
