-About Ratios-
All herbal extracts on the market have a ratio affixed to the product to help us determine how much solvent/material was used to create the finished product.

An example we can use is Damiana with a ratio of 1:3

This tells us that 1 part of solvent was used with 3 parts of Damiana to produce the extract.

Typically extracts made from FRESH plant material use equal parts of material to equal parts of solvent such as a ratio of 1:1 and extracts made from DRIED material will require more material against solvent such as a ratio of 1:4

Bear in mind "A Modern Herbal" was written with the conventional wisdom of the early 1900's. This should be taken into account as some of the information may now be considered inaccurate, or not in accordance with modern medicine.
