As a tea: Steep 1 tsp of the Buckthorn Bark in 250 ml of boiling water for 5-10 minutes and then strain. After this time it's ready to drink. You can also drink it cold.
As a tincture: Simply chop bark and fill 1/3 of your jar. Pour the vodka or brandy in to fill the jar and cover the herb. Tightly screw the lid on the jar and shake gently. Label your jar with the date, the herb and the type of menstruum (alcohol). Store your jar in a dark place for six weeks. After six weeks your tincture is ready. Strain out the plant material and put some in an amber dropper bottle (don't forget to label this too) and continue to store the excess in a cool, dark place. The normal dosage is 15-30 drops three times a day.
