Dosages for children

What is the safe amount to give to a child?

The dosage of herbs for children are much smaller than those for adults. This is because they have under developed liver and kidneys and so process herbs very differently.

Babies only require a few drops of tea whereas a child of 6 could go up to half a cup.

There are several formulas that you can use to change an adult recipe or herbal dosage into a child dosage, but that is a bit complicated for most people.

I have included some formulas in appendix 2 if you’d like to have them.
