Most Herbs Should Be Taken As Herbal Tea.
There are many herbal supplements, herbal tinctures and herbal topicals on the market. All of which can be good ways to consume herbal medicine. However, for most herbs the best way to consume herbs is with an herbal tea or an herbal infusion. By consuming natural homeopathic plant medicine in its natural form you will get the most out of the herb and the plants constituents. Constituents are all the working parts of the herb. Consuming herbs that have been freshly ground and steeped in water is the best way for most plant medicine to absorb into your body.
