* Always use spring water, or filtered tap water, if possible, when preparing medicinals, in order to avoid contaminating the medicinal with chlorine or any other chemicals or heavy metals that may commonly be found in tap water. When boiling a medicinal in water, use fresh water, not water that has been previously boiled, as boiling drives the oxygen out of the water, and affects the way it interacts with the medicinal, both as solvent and as carrier medium.
** When applying a topical dosage form to the skin, always make certain that it is a skin-safe temperature by testing on the inside of the wrist or elbow. Obviously it is important not to put hot liquids or any excessively hot dosage form onto the skin, but it is also important not to put an icy cold dosage form onto the skin of a sick or injured person (except as part of certain very specific treatments, which specify how this is to be done), in order to avoid causing spasm or nerve pain. Some individuals are more prone to problems with heat and/or cold than others, so it is important to make sure that you check with the person receiving treatment, to make sure that they are not injured in the process.
