It consists in extracting aromatic compounds from plants by different methods of preparation such as maceration, decoction or infusion of plant material (fresh or dried flowers, stems, roots, leaves) generally in hot water.
It is important to distinguish the different uses of dried plants, namely, infusion, decoction and maceration.
- The maceration of medicinal plants is a method of preparation which consists in placing the dried plants in water at room temperature for a few hours. This maceration consists in soaking the plant in cold water for several hours (less than 10 hours because, beyond, there is a risk of fermentation). After filtration, you can slightly cool the drink (below 40 ° C).
- The decoction of dried plant consists in putting different parts of the plant to heat in the water until boiling, then to keep them at temperature for a few minutes. This preparation is a little more concentrated in active ingredients than the infusion. A decoction is used for the hard, compact or woody parts of plants: wood, stem, fruit, bark, sapwood, roots, seeds. These vegetative organs deliver their active principles only under the prolonged action of heat (boiling maintained for a few minutes).
- Herbal tea infusion consists of pouring hot water on flowers or leaves, soaking for a few minutes before tasting. Cover (with a saucer for example, to prevent the volatile substances in the plant evaporate during the infusion) and leave the plants in contact with boiling water for a specific duration, which can vary from 3 at 10 minutes. This will soften the tissues of your dried plant and, thus, release and diffuse its active ingredients .
