Aerial parts of the plant such as flower, stem, and leaf will yield medicine in 5 -20 minutes. Underground parts like roots, rhizomes and tubers take longer, 20 to 40 minutes; Shells and minerals must cook for at least one hour. A few herbs, like mint or tangerine peel, must be quick-boiled for only 1-5 minutes to retain their volatile oils. These herbs are added separately to the boiling mixture just before completion.
