Spill the tea, not the infusion

I was recently introduced to the work of Susun Weed and her Wise Woman Way. She is a Green Witch and teaches about green blessings from her green heart!

She is a simpler- using only one herb at a time. She teaches people how to make nourishing herbal infusions from nettles, red clover, oatstraw, comfrey and linden. Infusions are different from just herbal tea in that they can provide richer benefits.

For tea you use a teaspoon of the herb per 8 oz and steep a few minutes. In contrast, an infusion uses 1 oz of your chosen herb per quart and steep 4-10hrs.

I had been making chilled unsweetened herbal tea on the daily since it’s been so hot. Now I’m drinking nourishing herbal infusions to impart greater benefits from our plant allies!

Susun offers free courses and videos on how to build your immune system so that you only have a mild case of the flu when you get it.

Or this video where she makes a nettle infusion!

  1. Hi Casey,
    I love your blog! Wow I am so impressed by your passion for knowledge, learning and growing after
    reading regenerative agriculture and tea infusions.
    And such a patient lady waiting three years for your first mission fig. I love figs, so beneficial with great texture and flavor.
    You are remarkable Casey! Thank you for sharing your blog with me. I love to learn new things from others. Your writings fresh and spiritual yet practical and clear to understand. What a special God given gift. Cherish and nature it.
