Herbal formulations come in different forms for consumption. The most common form is in powdered form which can be purchased in capsules.

Many traditional herbalists provide the raw ingredients and then these ingredients can either be infused with water or decoctions can be prepared. For children or those who are not adapted to eating herbs as they are usually bitter to taste, there are syrups available in the market for such purposes. Creams can also be bought which contain herbs especially aloe vera and lavender and these are sold on a large scale commercially due to their efficiency. Essential oils of some herbs are also available which are used in spas and also for other relaxation purposes, but make sure you buy the authentic ones instead of synthetic even though they might be expensive, because these work the best. Effectively it is recommended that one buy fresh herbs and use them because they work the best minus all the manufacturing processes.
