I love making my own teas at home.  It's fun to experiment with different herbs and make something unique.  Not to mention that I am in love with my local Natural Grocer who has every herb imaginable and cheaply sold by the ounce.    While picking up ingredients for some chai, I spotted some Chamomile and Rose hips and tossed them in my basket.

Both of these ingredients are well known for a number of health benefits so combined they are a great healthy tea packed with all kinds of goodness.

Chamomile is great for:

  • Easing stomach issues like cramps and general digestion
  • Your SKIN!
  • Treating ulcers
  • Overall Calming which is great for sleep time
  • Heals Inflammation

Rose Hips are Great for:

  • Loaded with vitamin C which is great for cold and flu season
  • Treats tummy issues
  • Lowers blood sugar and prevents insulin hikes
  • Boosts the Immune System

 

To make a simple tea mix, Mix 2 Cups dried Chamomile flowers and 1/4 Cup Dried Rose Hips

Mix and store in airtight jars.

To Brew- infuse 2 cups of boiling water with 3 TBSP of the tea mix.  Let Steep for 5 minutes and serve. Sweeten with Agave if desired.
