I felt a bit yuck this morning. Most likely its from eating junk food last night. The lymph glands in my neck are slightly swollen and have a faint, dull ache, and my head feels a bit ‘fuzzy’ (like it does when I am coming down with a cold). So, I made a herbal tea, with herbs picked fresh from the garden. As my medicinal herb garden is brand new, all my plants are babies, so this is a rare luxury at the moment.
It’s a lovely delicate fragrant blend, and I can feel it doing me good already!
(the following herbs have other actions as well, I am just listing the ones relevant to this tea)
chamomile; carminative, digestive, stomachic, tonic
yarrow; blood cleanser
white sage; cleanser
lemon balm; carminative, stomachic, tonic
basil; just because I have a lot of it and I love it
mint; carminative, digestive, tonic
sheep sorrel; blood cleanser, immune booster, tonic
rose geranium; digestive, and I love the fragrance
licorice; demulcent, tonic, stomachic
