3 tips for using powdered products (tea, ground herbs, …etc)
Many people (in excellent health or with an unfortunate medical diagnosis) often use powdered tea mixtures, ground herbs and other products from complementary herbal therapy. Some people also often complain that they did not feel any effect from the auxiliary herbal therapies.


  1. Grind the plants according to the required amount – plants and teas (and other products that we grind in a blender or coffee grinder) spoil faster than whole ones. Plants quickly lose their smell, taste and color due to high humidity but also due to the influence of humidity and lightness. Ground mixtures also lose the amount of alkaloids and other medicinal properties (navala rhizome, slalica flour, etc.). All pharmacopoeias for most herbal (and other) mixtures prescribe that the powder should be made when a person needs it and immediately before use. Powders are more hygroscopic, that is, they attract moisture. That is why powdered products should be stored in well-closed containers and jars, in which we put these products (in a bag or with a hollow container stopper). Add some anhydrous potassium chloride or some absorbent.
  2. Persistence in the use of auxiliary herbal therapies and tea mixtures – herbalists often point out that many people are impatient when using herbs and waiting for healing. Herbalists say that a person/patient should drink, for example, at least 2 cups of tea a day for a month or similar, depending on the type of problem. Then one should listen to the advice without impatience and wait until the procedure is finished before commenting. This is especially difficult for people who normally do not drink enough liquids, or who are not fans of bitter teas, and it is recommended, for example, not to add any sweetener to the tea. People need to be persistent and persistent in order for some results to be visible and not to say that “the teas were not effective or did a good job in treating the person”.
  3. People sometimes do not really know what products they use and what the true content of the purchased product is – for example, a person buys medicinal herbs in a health food store and makes a drink according to a recipe from the Internet (from a book or from a magazine). It turns out that the drink is useless or the tea mixture is ineffective. The recipe may not have suited that person, but the purchased products may also be low-quality raw materials (because the customer often does not know the storage time of the products in stores, the proper drying and storage of teas, the place and time of harvesting plants and similar information). Chopped plants lose their medicinal properties faster than whole plants.
