Although, today, powdered extracts of herbs are also commercially available, all
of the recipes for making herbal remedies that refer to "powdered herb" mean a
powder made by pulverizing the dried herb.
To powder a herb it has to be
totally dry (see drying instructions).
In larger volumes a commercially available coffee grinder (set at fine) can be
used (this has to be very clean and free of any residue from prior grinding to
avoid contamination) but the old method of using a mortar and pestle does the
job as well, if a little slower.
Do remember to store in a dry, air tight and lightproof environment to
preserve the potency of the herb, see storing.
