Breast Enhancement Herbs: How do I use the bulk herb powders?In general we recommend bulk herbs only for those who are somewhat skilled in homemade herbal preparations and teas. Most women do much better with the easy to use capsules and extracts since they use them more consistently which is the key to success. That having been said, some women do use the bulk herbs to inexpensively boost their program.

Some women incorporate the bulk herbs into their diets using our guidelines. But many have a problem getting started with them. Most commonly someone will write to us to say something like; "I stirred two teaspoons full of the powders into a cup of warm water. It was awful!"

Our answer to this would be; "Yes, that does sound awful and we are not surprised that you didn't care for it"

These herbs are used as flavorings and spices in many foods including imitiation maple flavoring (fenugreek) and Italian sausage (fennel). They are used because of their pungent and aromatic qualities. But they are strong tasting and generally need to be used in specific ways to turn them into something that you will enjoy. There are a number of things to try listed below, but you may have your own ideas, so feel free to use them however you like.

Try these methods:

Put 1 tablespoon of fenugreek powder in a coffee filter and brew it in a coffee maker with about 10 ounces of water. Use this liquid hot or cold in other beverages. You can add some flavored herbal tea during the brewing for flavoring. Add a little honey or ginger if you like. If you would like to try it iced, add the liquid to some ginger ale or lemonade over ice. Then try the same thing with the fennel powder.

Sprinkle a little in applesauce, yogurt or fruit smoothies and shakes. Don't start with too much at once and try the herbs seperately at first. Fenugreek will taste good in certain things while fennel may be better in others. You can also make the liquid as described above and add this to the foods rather than the dry herb itself.

Try them in shakes made with flavored soy milk- the soy will give you an extra boost of the phyto-nutrients that you need.



What Can I Make with Bulk Herbs?

You can make herbal teas, tinctures, liqueurs and syrups that are healthy and inexpensive. They can be brewed individually or blended to create a range of aromas and flavors. You can drink herbal teas hot or iced, or combine them with juice or other beverages. Make herbal tea by the cup or in larger quantities. A pot made in the morning, for example, can be left on the stove for easy reheating, drinking at room temperature, or drinking iced later in the day.

When buying herbal medicines be sure to look at the ingredients. Greenbush herbs have no fillers and are never irradiated or sprayed with pesticides. The extracts are alcohol free, medicinal strength and holistically balanced. Manufactured in the US. FDA inspected. Good Manufacturing Practices guidelines. Why not buy the best. Your health depends on it.

Greenbush Bio-Chelated Extracts: Until Bio-Chelation there was simply no good way to make a potent alcohol-free extract. Greenbush alcohol free extracts begin with organic alcohol regardless of whether the final product contains alcohol or not. After finishing the first step in the plant extraction, an additional step is performed to remove the alcohol. This is done by utilizing a proprietary cold extraction process called Bio-Chelation®. Bio-Chelation® describes the cold process vacuum distillation method, which removes all the alcohol initially used to obtain the good herbal extract.

Holistically Balanced Herbal Extracts: It is important to note that a cold extraction process, as opposed to a heat extraction process, helps maintain the full spectrum, or Holistic BalanceTM of the plant's constituents in the final product. The end-result is an alcohol-free extract containing the essential properties of the complete herb in a base of vegetable glycerin and water. (Vegetable glycerin is used because it can help to bind certain plant constituents, is natural to the body, easily absorbed, tastes sweet without affecting blood sugar levels, and acts as a good solvent and carrier for the plant constituents).
