All of our single dried herbs and of fine, herbalist grade quality and contain medicinal benefits. Dried herbs are frequently infused as potent herbal teas, applied topically as a healing poultice or used in cooking in order to provide natural medicinal treatment and effective nutritional support. All herbs are sold in bulk sizes and are not pre-packaged. Many of our bulk dried herbs are organic and / or wild crafted.

To brew herbal tea using dried herbs: An infusion method is used to prepare herbal teas from the leaves, flowers and fragrant plant parts. One teaspoon of dry herb is used for every one cup of boiling water. The herbs are then steeped, covered for 5 to 15 minutes before straining and drinking. A preparation called a decoction is used to prepare a medicinal tea from the bark, root, berries and any harder plant parts. The dried herb is placed in a pot, covered with cold water and brought to a boil. The heat is then reduced and the decoction is then covered and allowed to simmer, but not boil, for 10 to 15 minutes. For maximum benefit consume herbal tea while it is warm and between meals.

Cayenne Pepper Powder
Cayenne pepper has numerous beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system. It assists to reduce the likelihood of developing arteriosclerosis by reducing blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Cayenne also reduces the platelet aggregation and increases fibrinolytic activity. Cayenne has been used as medicine for centuries. It was considered helpful for various conditions of the gastrointestinal tract, including stomachaches, cramping pains, gas even bleeding ulcers. Cayenne was frequently used to treat diseases of the circulatory system and sends fresh blood flow to the peripheries. When applied to the skin, Cayenne is a rubefacient herb which sends fresh blood flow to a localised area. It is a traditional remedy for rheumatic pains and arthritis due to what is termed as a “counterirritant” effect. A counterirritant is something that causes irritation to a tissue to which it is applied, thus distracting from the original irritation (such as joint pain in the case of arthritis). Cayenne’s primary chemical constituents include capsaicin, capsanthine, beta carotene, flavonoids, and vitamin C. Cayenne causes the brain to secrete more endorphins. It is considered thermogenic, meaning it can “rev up” metabolism and aid in weight loss. Cayenne also improves circulation. Cayenne helps to relieve pain, not only due to its endorphin enhancing properties, but also when diluted and used topically it helps to block the transmission of substance P, which transports pain messages to the brain - again making it beneficial topically for minimising pain sensations. As a first aid application cayenne pepper powder can be used in emergency situations to stop bleeding - simply dust a bleeding wound with the powder and apply pressure.
