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.
