More teas that heal - brewing recipes this time.
All the following recipes have the same measurements.
Unless otherwise stated, they are brewed in a coffee maker or tea brewer.
1 tablespoon of each type of herb
1 tablespoon of honey to sweeten the tea
1 Tablespoon White Willow Bark
1 Tablespoon Catnip
Put in a tea ball and steep in boiling hot water for five minutes. Drink as hot as you can stand it, then lie down for a nap.
1 teaspoon Rose Hips-crushed
1 teaspoon Butcher's Broom
1 teaspoon Yellow Dock
Bring 31/2 cups of water to a boil. Remove water from heat and add herbs. Place a tight lid on the pot. Let the mixture steep for five to ten minutes. Drink one cup three times daily. Yields three cups.
1 Tablespoon Chamomile
1 Tablespoon Peppermint
Put in a tea ball and steep in boiling hot water for five minutes.
1 teaspoon Valerian
1 teaspoon Skullcap
1 teaspoon Hops
Bring water to a boil and add herbs. Cover pot with lid and let steep for 5 minutes.
1 teaspoon St John's Wort
1 teaspoon Gingko Biloba
Place 1 cup of water into a glass or porcelain pot and bring to a boil. Take the pot of the heat and add the herbs. Put a tight lid on the pot and let it steep for five minutes. Strain out herb. Place in a cup and sweeten with honey if desired.
Note: where the recipes give the measurements in parts, you have the liberty of increasing your bulk reserve quantity. Your part might be in a teaspoon, a tablespoon, or a cup. If you expect to be making this tea more often, I would recommend preparing a larger mix, and putting it away in a cannister or jar. Then just dip out by spoon the amount needed for each cup or pot of tea you make.
Of course, you can do this with the other recipes too, but you will have to watch for ingredients of different quantities to get the proportions right.
