Summer Everyday Herbal Tea Blend
This is my Summer and late Spring everyday Herbal Blend.
Every time I make it I'm just blown away by how beautiful and delicious it is. Emmet said that it "tastes amazing" and I was just thinking that I couldn't agree more.
2 parts Alfalfa:
I chose alfalfa for the nutritive value. All those vitamins and minerals! One of Alfalfa's uses is for indigestion. Alfalfa also has calcium, potassium, phosphorus, and iron. Not to mention vitamins A, C, E, and K 🌱🌱
2 parts Rose Petal:
Rose brings on such a sense of well-being, sensuality, and calm. I love Rose in everything right now. Rose petals, rose hydrosol, rose essential oil. You get it 🌹🌹
1 part Lemon Balm:
Lemon Balm is calming and antiviral. Need I say more? Lemon balm is also really tasty 💋
1 part Lavender:
I added Lavender to this for the calming, uplifting, and digestive support. Lavender is also a very balancing herb. It supports us to increase energy if energy is low and to calm if our energy is high or anxious. 💜
2 parts Calendula:
First off, I add Calendula to everything right now. It definitely seems to be my favorite. In addition, I love Calendula for its gut healing properties, immune support through the lymphatic system, and gentle cleansing action. 🏵️
2 parts Nettle:
I always add Nettle in the spring to minimize the slight allergy symptoms that I get along with enjoying the nutritive and tonic value of this amazing herb. 🌿
I add two to three tablespoons to 16 oz of water and steep for at least 1 hour! 🍵🍵🍵
Drinking things that are good for you is a must. I know that it is not always taste great, but it is still good for you. I know that there are people who hate tea, but just in terms of what they can provide, tea is great. I love that tea is there and that I can drink them whenever I can. I just hope that people realize how great they are, that is what I believe to be the truth.
