Nylah’s Nourishing Tea
½ teaspoon dried nettle
½ teaspoon anise seed
1 teaspoon chamomile
To Prepare: combine all herbs in a glass jar (or tea pot..) Cover and let steep for 10 minutes. I like to sweeten with local honey and cinnamon
Nettle Health Benefits: Stimulates lymphatic function, helps with inflammation and allergies, boosts nutrition and immunity
Nettle Nutrition: iron, calcium, potassium, and Vit C
Tips: add dried nettle to any broths in small doses.
Anise Seeds: these seeds have a warming effect upon digestion and upper respiratory tracks, making it useful for reducing clear, runny secretions. Use as a natural decongestant. Can be mildly relaxing for the respiratory. (info from Naturally Healthy Babies and Children by Aviva Jill Romm)
Chamomile: Relaxing and Calming.
Local honey: honey is an overall health aid, contains antibacterial properties. Buy local honey to help prevent allergies and boost immunity. Only give honey to babies over age 1
Cinnamon: a great warming spice, anti-fungal, antibacterial, and great to use to prevent and ease the common cold.
