Herbal infusion #2

Standard

So, I’ve been doing a little research and have bought 9 new herbs online to make a second herbal infusion.  I’m aiming at working on my nerves (I have a degenerative nerve disease cgotu kolaalled CMT), my thyroid, adrenals and asthma (which I apparently may or may not have. Asthma that is.  It’s a long story) . I ordered from Baldwins in the UK.  They have an impressive range and deliver to Europe.  I hope they get here before the end of December, as I’m starting my ‘detox’ on 1st January.  I’m also hoping the mixture is as pleasant tasting as the one I’m drinking now.

  • Gotu-Kola
  • Ginkgo Biloba
  • Skullcap
  • Mullein
  • Fenugreek
  • Bladderwrack
  • Bugleweed
  • Irish Moss
  • Saw Palmetto

My Herbal tea

Standard

I have mixed some herbs to make my very first herbal tea mix; horsetail, alfalfa, marshmallow root, dandelion, burdock root, goldenrod.  It smells rather odd but is surprisingly tasty.

Burdock

I’ve been drinking it for about 3 days now.  I make up a pot of about 1 litre in the afternoons and then drink it lukewarm during classes.  I’ve mixed this formula to help my kidneys detox (among other things).

Horsetail (Equisetum Arvense)

Alfalfa

Marshmallow Root

Dandelion (Taraxacum Officinale)

Burdock (Arctium)

Goldenrod
