I am absolutely new and unlearned in this Herbal World and ready to learn all that I can.
Thank you so much for all this information!
My question now is on the weight/measuring of the herbs.
I have an order coming from Mountain Rose in a few days and I had ordered 8 ounce packages, not knowing how much I would need or which I would use most, thinking that was a good start.
However, I just listened to another YouTube on infusions, and Susun stated that a one ounce weight could be one to two cups of herbs, depending on the type.
Gosh, now I'm wondering if these 8 ounce packages will amount to enough to make an infusion?
And the other side of that is that the weight sold has to be doubled or More - how does one afford it?
I'm looking forward to getting out to forage on my own, but it will be awhile before I can do that.
Thanks so much!!
Go by weight - this is really how the infusions are done. One ounce by weight (not volume) to a quart of boiling water will give you the proper ratio for the infusions that Susun does.... you don't want to use a measuring cup, but a scale. If you have a package that by weight is 8 ounces, then you've got 8 infusions there. If you don't have a scale, you can open the package, divide into two, then two, etc. until you have 8 even piles and then you can pack each one up in a paper bag and you'll know you are using the right amount of herb.
