Make Your Own Healing Tea - Becca Piastrelli

Hey there,

creative gal!

You’ve landed on a post I wrote a few years ago -
back when I was known as The Dabblist and was exploring all sorts of ways I could create beautiful things with my hands. It was a powerful time for me — awakening my creativity after suppressing it for so long — but this space has since evolved to reflect the woman I’m becoming.

Homemade Healing Tea // The Dabblist

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.
