I'll have to try the infusion Judith. : ) Do you mix it with honey to sweeten it like it mentioned in the link, or do you just mix it with other medicinals?
I hardly ever sweeten tea or infusions unless it's something like ashwaganda or a really bitter herb, and then I do only use local raw honey.
The self heal is such a mild subtle flavor that is fine unsweetened even with other herbs.
I used to add a little of it to almost what ever herb I was brewing at the time...passionflower, skullcap, anise hyssop, mint, etc. I don't think it is a strong medicinal but nice.
This is reminding me of our crazy 'lawn' at our other place...between us we had so many things marked to 'save' that it was like an obstacle course to mow...and we tried to keep it mowed around the house because of ticks and copperheads.....
