Herbal Teas that can support you as you heal

Making herbal teas for medicine is a way that you become involved in the healing process. Herbal teas may not be as potent as herbal tinctures they are full of other constituents from the herbs that encourage the healing processes. They are most effective for chronic, long term conditions and imbalances.

They can be drunk hot, at room temperature or cool, depending on the condition that you are treating.

So to make your herbal tea steep the dried herbs in boiled water and let sit cover to maximise the medicinal properties of the herbs.

Teas can be made with a single herb or serval in combination.

First step in making a herbal tea is to have clear intentions for the tea you are making. In other words, who is the tea for and what do you want to address with the tea?

Of course then you need to know what herbs you have available to create the tea.
