Wise Water tea ~ You will love this!


Herbs can offer us such amazing gifts of healing. This combination is easy to make and very good for us.

I am a great believer in having things ‘on hand’ so that when we NEED our herbs and herbal formulae, they are ready to go — for our selves as the care-givers, often, and for our family and friends.

Thanks to my friend and a delightful herbalist in N.Y. state, Kate Gilday, for this idea from classes many years ago. Kate is always quick to say that she didn’t create this recipe, but learned it from a friend ~ that’s the nature of traditional herbal work ~ sharing.

Wise Water Tea

This combination of 3 herbs increases our digestive ability as well as extremely effective as detoxification tonic. It is a delicious detoxifying tonic, for after the holidays,  but has specific uses in herbal medicine circles; to help the body strengthen and clear toxins after cancer chemotherapy.

It’s EASY:

Boil 1 litre of water. Place in a non-plastic thermos or 1 litre canning  jar with a lid.

Add 1 tsp each of cumin, coriander and fennel.
Let steep for about 15 minutes.
Strain and drink a cup before breakfast and sip the rest throughout the day.

There are — inevitably — MANY pages about each of the above herbal allies. These are but highlights and hopefully help to explain, in this case, why they ‘marry’ so well!!
