Feeling Under Weather? Try Some Tea

My mother always told me that a good cup of tea would sooth the pain away. Whether the weather has you down, you have allergies, or the dry heat of the furnace makes your throat dry as well. Mom was right and a good cup of tea will help you feel better. Next time you are not feeling so well try a cup of one of these combinations:

HEALTHY GREENS For a full-bodied flavor, you might try steeping a combination of dandelion leaves, watercress, parsley, and birch leaves.
BEAUTIFUL BLOOMS Consider using a colorful mixture of rose petals, dandelion blossoms, pansies, and violets for good taste and appearance.
NOBLE FRAGRANCES Combine chives, thyme, rosemary, marjoram, verbena, oregano, and mint with flowers such as lemon blossoms and lilac.
Herbal remedies can be administered — and enjoyed — in many ways, but when boiling water is poured over herbs, the plants' soluble organic compounds are easily broken down. The resulting fragrances are an indication of the herbs' inherent therapeutic qualities.

  1. So true. I drink tea pretty much every night before bed. I think it is calming, soothing and does exactly what you said- soothes dry throats (I have really bad allergies). Great post!
