I love my herbal teas! I don’t always love the cost of my herbal teas! Why not make yours at home. So many herbs and spices are very inexpensive, especially if you have a bulk spice and herbal area in your local market or grocery store.
Slowly but surely I have acquired a lovely array of herbs and spices that I like to mix in to my own special blend of herbal infusions. I feel a bit like a chemist or maybe a witch brewing up my unique concoctions. I can make it suit my health needs and tastes at a whim.
Here is a favorite combo for upset stomachs of the bubbly belchy stomach sort.
lemon balm — licorice — fennel — cardamom — marshmallow root — slippery elm
This is a favorite for a gassy toot toot stomach ache.
ginger, cinnamon, cardamom, – pinch of peppermint – chammomile and licorice for sweetness or stevia
I have jars filled with many sorts of herbs and spices that I buy in small quantities at our local Whole Foods Co-op. My daughter and her friends like to open them and smell, taste and concoct new signature recipes.
We just take a pinch of whatever we like and add them to a mason jar then fill with hot water. Steep for 5-10 minutes then strain it into a cup. Liesl doesn’t like to strain hers because she really likes to chew on some of the herbs, especially fennel seeds.
I would like to share some photos with you of our process, but still I am having photo/media problems with my website ugh! I know it is not nearly as fun to read without photos but I will do my best to fix that problem soon.
In the mean time – If you like what you are reading please share this with your friends!
