Brewing a cup of tea, sitting down to sip it calmly, and just breath in and out, is one of the great pleasures of life.
Drinking tea not only centers us, it also provides a simple method for administering herbs in order to experience their many medicinal benefits.
Herbal teas can treat any number of ailments, such as:
- Low milk supply
- Cold and flu
- Lack of energy
- Water retention
- Sore throat
- and many more!
You just need to find the right herb, pour warm water over it, then steep, strain, and sip.
While tea bags are convenient, buying herbs in bulk or as a loose tea often saves money.
Preparing your own blends is quite easy, too. The Bulk Herb Store has a comprehensive post on preparing your own tea blends.
The internet abounds with recipes, too. If making a customized tea blend is something that appeals to you, try searching the web and you are sure to find a ton of great recipes.
