I enjoy making my own teas.
You can make your own too - with raw ingredients. Simply steep chopped ingredients in hot water and enjoy.
The ingredients are important - tea can help heal. For instance, at the beginning of spring when everything is beginning to bloom, I treat my allergies by steeping fresh nettle into tea. For a winter cold, I showed you my honey, ginger, lemon concoction.
I thought it might be useful to share some common household ingredients that you can use to combat what ails you:
Ginger - Powerful stuff! Anti-viral, great for pain relief, colds, fever.
Garlic - Anti-fingal, anti-bacterial, super immune boosting. Better to have raw.
Sage - Anti-septic, anti-bacterial. Great for digestion and menstrual cramps.
Cinnamon - Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, great for nausea.
Clove - Fights infection.
Lemon - Vitamin C, an amazing ingredient. Squeeze into tea right before drinking.
Rosemary - Very stimulating, anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic.
Turmeric - Anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, purifies blood, loweres blood sugar levels.
