Dehydrating is an incredible way to preserve food, but also to process whole foods so that they can be used in different herbal remedies: tea blends, oil infusions, bath salts, body scrubs, and powdered facial masks. When you dehydrate your own herbs, fruits, and vegetables – it produces far better quality than anything you can buy. And this means that your remedies will be more flavorful, fragrant, hold more medicine and will be more effective. For example, when you dehydrate ginger at home, the taste is beyond better than store-bought dried ginger. And it’s going to last for months and months in your pantry, ready to brighten your food, ease a stomach upset or soak sore muscle aches away.
