You can actually make your own herbal home remedies. There are a lot of ways in which this can be done. They include:

1. Infusion is the most popular way in which to prepare herbal remedies because they can be consumed quickly and easily. Usually, an infusion is made in much the same way as hot tea is made. What you will need to do is warm a china cup or a glass teapot by swishing hot water around inside of it. You will then want to place about 1 teaspoon of the herb for each cup of water into the warmed pot. Cover this with a lid and steep for between 10 and 15 minutes.

2. Decoctions are another way in which to prepare herbal remedies. This is quite an easy way to make herbal remedies because all you need to do is put between ½ and 1 teaspoon of an herbs roots, twigs, barks, or berries into 1 cup of water. You will want to bring this to a boil before you let it simmer for between 10 and 15 minutes before straining it. This can be drank either hot or cold, just make sure that it is consumed while it is still fresh.

3. Herbal home remedies can also be taken as a tincture. These are a little more difficult to make though. You will want to take the herb that you are working with and place it inside of a large jar then cover it with a mixture of water and either vodka or rum as long as it contains at least 25% alcohol. Then you should seal this and store it in a cool, dry area.for up to two weeks, taking time to shake it occasionally. After the 2 weeks are over, the mixture needs to be pressed through a wine press so that you can collect the tincture in a jug. Once you have collected this, you should then strain it into a dark bottle.

4. A lot of herbs can be made into palatable and effective syrups that can be taken as herbal home remedies. In order to make a syrup you will need to heat 2 cups of a standard herbal infusion in a medium-sized saucepan. You will then want to add about 500 grams of honey or sugar. Stir this mixture together until it is completely dissolved then allow it to cool. This syrup should then be kept in a dark bottle that is stored in a cool, dry location. You need to be sure that the bottle is sealed with a cork stopper because syrups ferment rather quickly.
