The herbs we use for children are usually much gentler; the dosages are based on the size, age, state of health (or illness) and constitution of the child, and the strength of the herbs used. There are several ways to determine the dosages. Most experienced herbalists rely on years of experience and intuition. Below is a chart to provide the home herbalist a sound guideline to help you determine dosages for children of all ages.
