Herbs are generally boiled for 20 - 40 minutes. Boiling times are averaged according to the composition of the formula. Flower and leaf will yield medicine in 3 -20 minutes. Branches and seeds, 10-30 minutes. Roots take longer, 30 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.
