I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather for the past few days, which happens to me at the start of winter every year. So, I made myself this little herbal remedy – a concoction consisting of peppermint (for flavor) and chamomile (for it’s calming properties). I also added mullein and echinacea, two herbs that help to combat respiratory illness and sore throats. I buy these dried herbs in bulk at my health food store but you can also buy them online. This blend is delicious and great for cold season!
Throw herbs together so that they are combined and store tea in an airtight container, such as a mason jar. Use 1 tablespoon of the blend per each cup of tea. I use a tea infuser, which can be found online but if you do not have one and do not want to invest in one, that’s not a problem! Just pour boiling water over the leaves and steep for 15 minutes then pour hot water through a strainer which should catch any loose leaves. Add a tablespoon of honey if desired (highly recommended, especially if you’re feeling under the weather). Enjoy!
