Q: i was using 21grams of Raw herb Xi Qian Cao in a mixture of raw herbs that is boiled. How much of the powder version should I put in and do I put this in and boil it or put it in at the end after the raw herb mixture has been strained?
A: Hi, you don't need the same amount as raw herbs. It also depends on your own circumstance, you can start 1/5 amount of raw then leave it to the last few minutes of boiling herbs. Always consult your local TCM practitioners if in doubt.
