How to make an Infusion:

An infusion is a method of preparing herbs in which 1 to 2 teaspoons of dried herb or 2 to 4 fresh herbs (flowers- like Red Clover Blossoms and berries are substitutable) is “infused” or placed in oil or water (which does not need to be boiled), and then, after about ten minutes, is strained and ingested.

Things you can infuse include barks (like birch) leaves, and Chinese medicinal teas.

Infusions differ from Decoctions in that they spend less time soaking/steeping/simmering.
