A Beginner's Guide to Herbal Crafting

Updated: Jun 6




As you embark on the journey of herbal medicine making, it's vital to begin with intention and mindfulness. Before delving into the intricate processes of making herbal infusions, it's crucial to check in with ourselves and ensure that we are in a balanced state of being. Connecting with an intention for our herbal creations, be it to foster a deeper connection with nature or to aid in healing, sets the foundation for your journey into herbal medicine making.


The act of creating herbal infusions can be elevated by acknowledging and calling upon higher powers, ancestors, and the spirit of the plant. Seeking support from these allies not only infuses the process with positive energy but also aligns our intentions with the greater good for all.




Water Infusions and Herbal Teas


When making herbal teas through water infusions, understanding the nuances between using fresh and dry herbs is essential. Aromatic herbs often exhibit higher potency when dry due to their lower water content. By being mindful of the humidity in your environment and the water content of the herbs, you can choose whether to use fresh or dry herbs for your infusions.



Honey Infusions


Harnessing the medicinal qualities of honey to create potent immunity-boosting blends involves a careful selection of herbs such as garlic, oregano, rosemary, cinnamon, cayenne, Panamanian pepper, ginger, turmeric, and black pepper. Understanding the characteristics and benefits of each herb enables the creation of supercharged herbal honey infusions. These herbs for example boost the immune system, stimulate digestion, support cardiovascular function and more!




Oil Infusions


Utilizing carrier oils for infusing herbs offers a powerful method of connecting with herbal medicine. When selecting a carrier oil, such as coconut or almond oil, it's essential to consider their permeability and absorption into the skin. Crafting a body oil with herbs like Curry leaf and Gotu kola can provide rejuvenating and antioxidant-rich properties, supporting skin health and circulation.




Timing and Intention


Aligning the process of herbal medicine making with the cosmic energies and cycles, such as the phases of the moon, adds another layer of intentionality. By syncing the infusion process with the lunar cycle and observing cosmic energies, we can further enhance the potency and intention of our herbal creations.


As we delve into the world of herbal medicine making, understanding the essentials of water infusions, honey infusions, and oil infusions empowers us to craft potent and purposeful remedies. Embracing mindfulness, intentionality, and a deep connection with nature, we embark on a journey of creating herbal medicines that nourish the body, mind, and spirit.
