I have a ton of Chaste Tree Berries - dried herb, and I long ago lost the instructions I was given.

Has anyone used the dry herb before? I think I was supposed to take 1 tbsp of crushed dry herb and steep it in hot water for a few minutes. I certainly remember choking the rough bits back - but I don't remember how often or what time of day.

I suspect the time of day is similar to capsules.
ANy tips?

I never could stand the taste of the tea, so I encapsulated my dry herbs after grinding them. I took 1000mg a day. I have read of women on this forum who used as mush as 1200 to 1500mg of the encapsulated herbs. I spoke with an herbalist who said the dose should be over 500mg to get effects for TTC.

HTH!
