MasarnenMaking herbal infusions

  • Boil your water and leave it for 5 min. Boiling water destroys the force of herb leafs and flowers.
  • Use 1 full teaspoon (3 to 5 gr.) of the shaken herb mixture for 1 big cup.
  • Let infuse covered for 5 (mild) to 10 (strong) minutes to drink hot, sweeten with honey, one teaspoon a cup, a natural sweetener with healthy properties.
  • Let infuse covered for 10 min to drink cold, add honey to sweeten it up and add when cooled down the fresh juice of a lemon, lime, orange or grapefruit. Put in the fridge to drink it ice cold.
  • Drink with little sips.
  • Drink 3 big cups a day for a full effect.

MasarnenTaking a bath with bath salt

  • Fill your bad half way with warm water.
  • Shake your jar firmly a couple of times to activate the essential oils.
  • Add minimum a small handful of the bath salt and let it dissolve in the water.
  • Fill the rest of your bath and bring the water to 37° C.
  • Stay a least 20 minutes in your bath to have a full effect.
  • Dab your body dry with a soft towel or just let it dry on itself.

MasarnenHaving a massage

  • Shake the bottle firmly a couple of times to activate the essential oils.
  • Hand warm massage oil enhances the absorbing of the enriched oil through the skin and gives a more enjoyable massage. I use a baby bottle warmer.
  • The massage oils are suitable for a full body massage but chest, neck, spine, solar plexus and foot soles are excellent access gateways to our inner body.
  • Be gentle and soft, it’s all about relaxing, not a sport massage.
  • Use long length wise strokes and circle wise moves with full flat hands.
  • Make sure your hands are warm and clean.

MasarnenCooking with herbs

  • Herbal mixes are best added at the end of the cooking process to ensure that herb and spice properties sustain.
  • Gomasios are sprinkled over a bowl of soup or strewed over a salad with some olive oil, lemon juice and balsamic vinegar. Sea salt can be added as an extra flavouring.
