All of our single dried herbs and of fine, herbalist grade quality and contain medicinal benefits. Dried herbs are frequently infused as potent herbal teas, applied topically as a healing poultice or used in cooking in order to provide natural medicinal treatment and effective nutritional support. All herbs are sold in bulk sizes and are not pre-packaged. Many of our bulk dried herbs are organic and / or wild crafted.

To brew herbal tea using dried herbs: An infusion method is used to prepare herbal teas from the leaves, flowers and fragrant plant parts. One teaspoon of dry herb is used for every one cup of boiling water. The herbs are then steeped, covered for 5 to 15 minutes before straining and drinking. A preparation called a decoction is used to prepare a medicinal tea from the bark, root, berries and any harder plant parts. The dried herb is placed in a pot, covered with cold water and brought to a boil. The heat is then reduced and the decoction is then covered and allowed to simmer, but not boil, for 10 to 15 minutes. For maximum benefit consume herbal tea while it is warm and between meals.

Hibiscus Flowers
Hibiscus flowers are known by their bright burgundy coloured appearance and traditionally for flavoring of herbal beverages. A tart and tasty tea made from the seedpods of the plant.

An antioxidant with immune system supportive properties, Hibiscus helps to relax the walls of blood vessels in conditions of high blood pressure and acts as a diuretic, but unlike most diuretic drugs, it does not deplete the body of potassium. Hibiscus tea is delicious prepared as a either hot tea or drank cold, and can be sweetened by adding a small amount of stevia leaves or honey while brewing the tea. To prepare the pods, first rinse then place into four times the volume of boiling water; reduce the heat and simmer on low for 5 minutes, remove from heat and let stand covered for 10 minutes, strain and sweeten with honey or stevia.

Kudzu Root Organic
The Kudzu (or Kuzu) plant is a climbing, woody vine which belongs to the pea family (or the legume family). For more than 2000 years in Chinese medicine, kudzu root has been used as herbal medicine for the treatment of headaches, diarrhea, dysentery, intestinal obstruction, stomach flu, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases; it is used as a digestive aid, fever reducer, and is thought to inhibit alcohol cravings and lower blood sugar. In traditional Chinese medicine, where it is known as gat-gun, ge gan, kudzu is considered one of the 50 fundamental herbs. TCM uses kudzu in treating the symptoms of high blood pressure such as headache and dizziness (although kudzu has little or no effect on blood pressure itself). It is used for tinnitus, vertigo and Wei syndrome (superficial heat close to the surface). It has shown value for helping migraines and cluster headaches and can increase circulation, an action that tends to reduce muscle pain and stiffness, and increases blood flow through the coronary arteries. Studies have shown that Kudzu can reduce alcohol cravings. For problem drinking: In clinical studies, Kudzu has shown some promising results in reducing the desire for alcohol and decrease the amount of alcohol consumed. A person who takes Kudzu, will still drink alcohol, but will consume less than if they had not taken Kudzu. The mechanism for this is not yet established, but it may have to do with both alcohol metabolism and the reward circuits in the brain. While Kudzu Root seems to lessen the desire for alcohol, it also stimulates regeneration of liver tissue while protecting against liver toxins. Kudzu is also taken internally on a regular basis to prevent recurrences of colds sores, shingles, and herpes. Used as a tea for reducing an elevated fever, muscle aches, and symptoms of a cold or flu and can sooth inflamed mucous membranes of the throat and bronchial passages. Animal and cellular studies have provided support for the traditional uses of kudzu root on cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and endocrine systems, including angina pectoris, diabetes and their long term complications.
