Considered to be a Yin tonic herb, especially nourishing to the lungs, skin and stomach. American Ginseng is a powerful adaptogenic herb. It thus provides energy, adaptability and heightened alertness. It is especially appreciated for its endurance increasing capacity.
Flavor: Potent, full flavor that is sweet and slightly bitter with that unmistakable Ginseng bite
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.
Ingredients: Dried American Ginseng root
