I powdered some passionflower c/s herb today with a Vitamix to make into capsules and noticed the blades get hot which makes the powder hot wouldn't the heat destroy the constituents of the herb?. What are some tips to not make the powder hot?.

Heat can be an issue in blenders. Smaller batches will have less issues.

Do you think it would be better to buy the herbs already powdered or c/s and blend them into powder?. Sometimes companies have powdered herbs sitting for a long time and powdered herb degrades quickly and powdering herbs with a blender will generate heat and who knows how much constituents get destroyed. Which is the best option?

The best bet is to grow your own and powder them yourself. The other options, as you mentioned, have some compromises.

Hey guys,I’m new to the forum here and wanted to say hello.So my family are herbalist in a since as we grow a lot of herbs in our back yard and my wife uses them to cook with.Ive been on a journey this last year to identify and use natural herbs and plants growing wildly in nature.I recently came across a book that contains most of the wild herbs and plants used to make homeopathic medicines and wondered what you guys thought about it.Thanks! I put it in a link here..https://b26c03r6fdyaf62y08vbsdgb79.hop.clickbank.net/
