Sarsaparilla is traditionally prepared for use as a decoction. To make a decoction of the powdered root, bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a ceramic pot, add 4 tsp. of the powder, cover the pot with a tight-fitting lid, and allow the mixture to boil for 5 minutes. Reduce the temperature to medium and allow the mixture to simmer for 20 minutes. Pour the decoction through a fine tea-strainer to remove any sediment and allow it to cool for a time before drinking. Refrigerate unused portions in a well sealed container.
The decoction is taken at a dosage of one-half to a full cup, 2 times a day.
