I purchased some dried horsetail and comfrey to make an herbal infusion to aid in the healing of my broken foot.
I am new to drinking infusions. I was going to combine the two allies into one infusion (1/2 oz. each in a quart jar).
Would you recommend doing it differently?
Thank you in advance & Blessings,
We generally do not mix herbs in infusions, however with horsetail we can add a pinch to the infusion to help with mineral absorption. I personally would not make a horsetail infusion with a full ounce of the herb per quart jar, especially if I did not harvest the horsetail myself in early spring when the silicic acid is at its lowest.
My advice to you is make a comfrey infusion by weighing out a full ounce of comfrey leaf, putting it in a quart jar, add a generous pinch of horsetail, fill to the top with boiling water, let sit 4-8 hours or overnight. Strain and drink some. make sure to refrigerate what you do not drink. You can make this a few times a week and may want to alternate with nettle infusion and oatstraw infusion.
Thank you for writing in and please let me know if you have any further questions.
