Goldenrod tea is a tasty and effective medicine. The longer you brew it and the more herbs you use the stronger the medicine will be. For a pleasing beverage start with 1-2 teaspoons of goldenrod leaves and flowers per 8 ounces of water. Increase the steeping time and dosage as needed. 1-3 ounces of herb can be used per day. For more diuretic properties drink the tea cold. For more diaphoretic properties and to promote digestion, drink the tea warm. Goldenrod-infused honey can be used for sore throats, or as a tasty treat. Goldenrod-infused oil can be used for achy joints and more acute injuries. This could also be made into a salve or liniment.
