Make Your Own Herbal Mixture: It All Goes Together

Make your own herbal mixture: Here’s how

To mix your own herbal mixture, you need different dried herbs and a hand blender or blender. Don’t use fresh herbs. They cannot be stored for a long time and would go moldy in this case.

  1. Choose the herbs that go best together and suit your taste. Sort out rotted leaves and coarse plant parts.
  2. Put the herbs in the blender jug. Blend the herbs finely. If you like the mixture coarse, then mix it just a little so that coarse pieces form.
  3. If you like a fine powder, you will need to blend the herbs a little longer. If the herbs trickle, then they are ready.
  4. Put the herbs in a well-closable jar. Store the herbal mixture in a cool, dark place.
