A Gentle Assurance
The base of this blend is a classic combo of catnip, lemon balm and chamomile. In the summer I love to wander through the garden, pinching off a bit of each and making the tea from fresh herbs. Sadly, I can't do that year round, so I dry a lot and keep this blend on hand as the base of everything I use.
In this case, I've added linden and rose, making this an effective but super gentle blend for all ages. This is our every day tea blend for us and our children, both day and evening. A wonderful bed-time tea.
Catnip is used to calm the nervous system and relieve digestive stress.
Lemon balm is used to treat anxiety, nervousness and restlessness.
Chamomile is anti-inflammatory while calming and soothing frayed nerves and providing comfort. Also a wonderful digestive.
Rose is an emotional and physical heart medicine, giving comfort to sadness, anger and grief. It is also anti-microbial and an antioxidant.
Linden is used for relaxation, mild pain and inflammation.
Add 1tsp tea blend to 1 cup of water and steep 5-7 minutes.
