Nutritional Herbal Infusion

Nutritional Herbal Infusion
Last week I completed 26 days preparing and drinking a daily Nutritional Herbal Infusion.

Each night I would choose one of the following herbs to make a Nutritional Herbal Infusion:
Stinging Nettle, Red Clover, Oat Straw, Comfrey Leaves, and Alfalfa.

I was interested in trying this Nutritional Herbal Infusion after watching a utube by Susun S. Weed on the importance of Nutritional Herbal Infusions. Susun S. Weed claims there is about 15 to 20% protein in each herb. and minerals too.

This is what I did each evening…
At bedtime I put 1 oz or 28.5 grams of dried herbs in a quart jar and fill it with boiling water and sealed it. Let it sit over night and strain it in the morning. I put the Herbal infusion into two water bottles. I drank from one and put the second bottle in the refrigerator until I was ready to drink the second one.

For your further information I have quoted an article written by Susun S. Weed.

How to make an Herbal Infusion
…A tea is a small amount of fresh or dried herb brewed for a short time. An infusion is a large amount of dried (not fresh) herb brewed for a long time. An infusion extracts more nutrients than a tincture and more medicinal qualities (and nutrients) than a tea. Most infusions are short-lived; they stay good for only two or three days.
Prepare infusions in pint/half-liter and quart/liter jars with tight lids. A teapot is not as good, but acceptable.
Usual dose of infusion is 1-2 cups/250-500 ml a day, taken hot, chilled, or at room temperature. Infusions may be seasoned with sweeteners, tamarin, milk, or any other additions that please your taste. Infusions can be used as soup stocks, bath waters, hair rinses, facial washes, and so on…
