I am infusing 1/2 cup nettle and 1/4 oatstraw in a quart jar. How long should I infuse it before straining it?
When doing the infusions, Susun always recommends that you use one ounce of herb by weight to one quart of boiling water – although in the past, she has stated that this is around one cup by volume, it can really vary according to the herb… Also Susun would recommend that you infuse the herbs separately and rotate them. Infusion is for at least 4 hours and most of us to it overnight. Heat the water and pour over infusion before going to bed and then strain and use in the morning.
Susun has a lot of info about the infusions at her website here: http://nourishingherbalinfusions.com/
