Pau D'Arco Bark Cut & Sift
How to Make: In order to use pau d’arco bark you’ll need to turn it into a decoction.
A decoction is different than a tea in that you actually simmer the bark in water for a few minutes rather than just letting it steep.
Many of the active ingredients in pau d’arco will resist heat for a while, and you’ll need to boil the bark for a while to pull it out of the densely packed cells that make up the wood.
For dried bark made into a decoction you should prepare a 1:30 ratio of water to dried bark. I usually use 100 grams of bark with 3 L of water to use for a couple of days.
You could also make smaller batches with 50 grams of bark and 1.5 liters (6 cups) of water.
Boil the bark for about 30 minutes until about 30% of the water is boiled away (leaving you with a 1:20 ratio for the final product).
This tea can then be refrigerated and drunk over the next couple of days.
How to take:
Drinking it for serious problems like Candida, you should aim to drink about a cup (250 mL) every 4-6 hours for the first 2 weeks, then reduce to a lower dose after you start seeing improvement.
Please know that you should not take pau d’arco if you are on blood thinner or are pregnant or breastfeeding.
The Pau D’Arco tree has a big benefit to match its size. Also called the Purple Trumpet Tree, it grows up to 125 feet high and has beautiful purplish-pink flowers. Its inner bark has been used in traditional medicine for centuries to help support immunity.*
