Using and preparing meadowsweet to use

Making Meadowsweet Tea:
Steep one teaspoon of dried leaves, or 2 teaspoons of fresh, in one cup of boiling water. Steep for 10-15 minutes. Add any sweetener to your taste. Strain out the herb and you can have it up to 3 times daily as needed.

Note*** If you are sensitive to aspirin, you may want to avoid meadowsweet taken internally.

As a compress:
Soak a clean cloth in tea and apply to any painful joints.
