Preparation methods



It is the best method to get the medicinal properties of sensitive parts of plants, of flowers and their leaves. As soon as the water starts to boil, remove it from the heat and pour in the healing part of the plant. Leave for 5 to 10 minutes (or more if you want it to become stronger) then strain and use. The usual proportions for an individual cup is usually 2 to 3 grams of the herbal substance


Decoction means I let it be cooked, i.e. I take the healing part of the plant, usually hard parts (fruits, roots, seeds, stalks etc) and boil them together with water for about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and leave for 5 to 10 minutes, then strain and use.


Here we use as a soluble element alcohol (alcohol, tsipouro) that dissolves the ingredients without boiling or heating. It is perhaps the strongest form of plant properties that man can take and it would be good to follow the dosage accurately and always by experienced people.


It occurs when a part of the ingredients solution evaporates, i.e. after we have medicinal plants soak in water or alcohol and condense them with evaporation.


It is the solution of ingredients that we get by soaking a plant from one day in water to 15 days in alcohol. Some hard parts of herbs (roots, peels) are best to simmer them first and then boil them. But do not infuse an herb for more than 12 hours because there is a risk of developing bacteria.


It is used for external use directly on the skin where we tie it with a cloth for a few minutes depending on the instructions for use of each herb. If the plant has a mild effect,place it directly on the skin. However, if it is irritated, must spread out on cotton fabric and apply it on the wound (not too tight). It is important to know the temperature that the poultice should have because at 50 degrees most anti-inflammatory and spasmolytic properties of plants are lost.
