Default dry spicing and hopping help

I'm going to be racking my white IPA to secondary tomorrow,
planning on dry-hopping with an oz of cascade and oz of citra

I also just cut some fresh lemonbomb and sage from SWMBO's garden

I'm a little worried about sanitation with the herbs.
I was thinking about throwing them in some boiing water for a few minutes and toss the water and the herbs all in together and rack on top of it

apologies if this has been answered already but I searched and didnt find anything

Making a tea would probably work fine. You could likely also get away with spraying the herbs with starsan thoroughly as long as they're clean of all debris.

Put the spices in a little vodka...let it sit for a few days then strain out the spices. This is the best way to go for adding spices IMO

Strain the spice...I add it to my secondary before transfer but you could add it to your keg or bottling bucket if you don't secondary
