Tasty tea for hangovers.

Hangover Tea

Speaking of comforting herbs, the boy had a nasty hangover Saturday morning, so I made him some tea. It tasted so good, we’ve been drinking it ever since.

To make the tea, mix together:

3 parts marshmallow leaf (Althaea officinalis) for the dried out tissues.
3 parts oatstraw (Avena sativa) for the jangled nerves.
2 parts lavender flowers (Lavandula angustifolia) for the muddled head.
2 parts rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis) for the hardworking liver.

Use about a tablespoon per cup of hot water. Steep for at least ten minutes.
It’s very nice with honey.

    Hello there,

    Just found your wonderful recipe for the green tea moisturizer. Heading over to the health food store to get the ingredients tomorrow. My skin is a wreck here in Boise. Can’t wait to use the cream. Thank you for posting the recipe.

    Hi Mary Ann.

    One thing to remember about the moisturizer is that if it’s on the cool side in your house (i.e., your room temperature is below 68 or so), you might want to use less coconut oil and more liquid oil so that the final oil mix is soft enough for the blender to work with at room temperature.

    Have fun!
