I recently aquired 2 ounces (each) of St. John's Wort, Passionflower, Skullcap, and Valerian, in powder form.

I assume that it's safe to just pour in a couple grams or so, but how would one specifically brew a potion with herb powder, as opposed to dried herbs?
Like, step by step.

Thanks! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/horse.gif)

dammit - ok - its all about body weight and dosage and normal variation and how much herb is in dried herbs and how much herb is in the powder, which is why i don't give advice in these matters


nothing trying to be an amateur pharmacologist! - no training and interaction research and oh nothing like handling potentially dangerous chemicals to build up an unknown drug cocktail for personal ingestion!


do your own in-depth research and remember that everbody is different and every body is different and if you overdose or overdo it or have an interaction it was not because it told you so, it was because i told you so - its not my responsibility, and not my responsibility! - let those who did so, do so!

With all due respect, I've read through this four times and can't make anything intelligible out of it.

lolololololol

nevermind, how bout just a 'told you so' to someone and i'll leave it at that

edit: double dammit! - ok, i'll say this: don't overdose yourself because you don't know how much effectiveness is in the powdered herb versus the dried leaf that some recipe you found somewhere called for - if it were me, which it isn't but what the hell -in for a penny in for a pound as they say - i'd work with a tiny smidgen of each herb individually over a good long time to determine my physical reaction to each one, then begin combining them to check for interactions, then craft my potion based on that work - no recipes, no measures, no chance of a screwup that could end you up hospitalized or dead - herbs are drugs not spices, and if you screw it up, its not like you ruined a cake or pie, you ruined you, and there may not be a cure - be just be very sure of what you eat before you poison yourself or worse - a liver is a terrible thing to waste

Much better, thanks!

My main concern was whether or not it was safe to ingest them directly (with liquid, obviously).

So your suggestion is to test a tiny, tiny, tiny bit at a time until I find the sweet spot, and then write my own recipes accordingly?
Sounds logical. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/book.gif)
