tea blending ….

Try making your own tea as a part of your spring self-care routine!  I’ll post several suggested combinations ….. here is one of my favorites.

Cleansing Allergy Tea

1 part Nettles  (Urtica dioica) 1 Tbs

1 part Red Clover (Trifolium pretense) 1 Tbs

1 part Peppermint (Mentha piperita) 1 Tbs

1 part Skullcap (Scutellaria lateriflora)1 Tbs

3 part Fennel Seed (Foeniculum vulgare) 1 Tbs

For each Tablespoon of dried herb use 1 cup of water.  You want to decoct the fennel alone then combine with the others.

Last night I swapped out the Fennel seed for some Burdock (1 Tbs), left out the nettles and tripled the amount of Peppermint.  It was the perfect bedtime blend!

Let me know what you think!  Happy Monday 🙂
