Make a tincture/herbal extract by mixing 1 part dry herb to 4 parts alcohol (80 proof vodka NOT rubbing alcohol). Shake every day for 6 weeks, strain and store in an amber glass bottle in the dark. Take 6-15 drops 2 times a day for the above health reasons.
Make an oil by mixing one part dried powder to 4 parts Extra Virgin olive oil. You can either follow the directions of the tincture above but replace the alcohol with olive oil or make a double boiler on the stove by placing a pan with water on the stove with water in it and a glass container, preferably a glass measuring cup with a spout inside the pan of water. Fill the glass container with the herb and cover with oil. Let the herb sit in the oil, stir over medium heat for 2 hours, strain and put in an amber bottle and store in a dark place.
