This technique is primarily used for hard to extract herbs, barks or roots. Use a 1:1 or 1:1.5 ratio of herb to water and simmer for 15 minutes, uncovered. Strain.
To create a formentation it is necessary to make a large infusion (see tea/infusion) of the herb of your choice. You then soak a cloth in the tea and place it on the affected area after it is at a hot yet tolerable temperature. These are especially good for sprains, swelling, general aches and pains, and bronchial problems.
A poultice is a very direct form of healing. This is very simple and good in emergencies. It only requires the herb of your choice and a hot towel. Heat a towel in a microwave by moistening first or use any other method you see fit. The towel must be hot, but not so hot that it would damage the skin. Lay the herb on the skin and cover it with the towel. Repeat as necessary.
This is a very common way to ingest herbs. Use 1 teaspoon dried herb to 1 cup of hot (not boiling) water. Steep for 5 minutes. Add fructose, sugar, or honey to sweeten if desired. Some herbs don't need sweetening such as liquorice.
