Sunny Sunday: Learning about herbs

I know, there is nothing sunny about the photo or you don’t see any herbs. These are samples of infused echinacea. From the top, clockwise: brewed from water for 10 minutes, tinctured (pre-made) and diluted with water, and brewed with hot water for 3 minutes. We also tried the same methods for elderflower, then made a bottle of tinctured elderflower.

I took this phytochemical class/workshop with a friend who is into soap making. I’m not quite ready to get into making soaps and other concoctions yet, but I will be making better herbal teas now at least. And maybe herb-infused elixirs.
