ROOIBOS ROSE SUN TEA RECIPE WITH HIBISCUS HONEY

Rooibos Rose Herbal Sun Tea

For this tea I used a 1:1:1 ratio of Rooibos (Red Bush Tea), rose tea and culinary lavender. To sweeten it, I used infused hibiscus honey.

Rooibos (pronounced ROY-boss) is also called African Red Bush Tea. Grown only in South Africa, the tea is made from the needle-like leaves of the shrub, which turn red as the tea oxidizes, or ferments. Rooibos is naturally caffeine-free and full of antioxidants and minerals such as calcium and zinc. The lovely Red Tea, as it is also called, seems to benefit the digestive system and can help with skin conditions due to its high levels of phenylpyretic acid, which has anti-inflammatory properties.

To make the tea, place the herbal tea blend onto several layers of cheesecloth and tie it into a pouch. Leave the string long enough so it’s easy to fish out after it’s “brewed.” Making a little pouch out of cheesecloth isn’t totally necessary, but it eliminates the step of straining the tea before you drink it.

Then place the tea sachet into a large jar and fill it with cool or room temperature water. (The jar pictured holds 1 liter.) Set the bottle in a sunny windowsill or outside in a sunny spot. In a few hours the tea will brew and be ready to drink! Give the tea sachet a good squeeze to make sure you get all the flavor out. It can then be discarded or placed in a compost bin.

I love my iced tea with a good squeeze of lemon and little drizzle of honey. I think I’m going to be making this once a week! It’s easy and delicious. You can use any kind of tea bags you like – green tea is another great one to try out.

Full Moon Tea: Emotional Well-Being

Making moon tea is a lot like making sun tea, only it imbues different properties. With the moon being a feminine energy, this is a method to use if you're looking to balance feminine hormones, inspire self-love, or to harness the Goddess's nurturing attributes. Today I decided to focus on emotional well-being, because who couldn't use a boost?

Between everyday stress and random junk life throws at us, it's not uncommon for us to need a little pick-me-up now and then in the emotional realm. And who else better to make us feel safe and loved than the Moon Goddess herself?

Here's what to do:

1. Gather your herbs
2. Place them in a clear glass jar
3. Fill jar with gently warmed (NOT boiling or steaming) water 
4. Loosely cover with lid or cheesecloth 
5. Leave outside in the moonlight
6. In the morning, strain herbs from tea (perfect for composting!)
7. Enjoy a glass while reflecting on how awesome you are.

Easy peasey, right? Below are the herbs I selected. I like to use what I have on hand and encourage you to do the same. No need to make life more complicated, especially if you're making a tea to help you relax! If you're looking for a great, comprehensive reference for magickal herb properties and meanings, I recommend Cunningham's Encyclopedia of Magical Herbs

A hefty pinch of each:
 
Magickal properties: Love and happiness
Medicinal properties: analgesic, sedative, moves chi (energy), calms nerves
 
Magickal properties: love and self-love
Medicinal properties: calms nerves, eases digestion, soothes anxiety, stress, nightmares
 
Magickal properties: Promotes self-care
Medicinal properties: Encourages convalescence, clears heat, cleanses heavy metal toxicity
 
Because herbs are so beautifully versatile and comprehensive, I only listed a few applicable medicinal properties of each. Herbal medicine is invaluable and wonderfully vast. Even after years of study, I'm still in awe of how all of our needs can be met through herbs, even modern and unnatural needs, like herbs to combat the side effects of chemotherapy. The more I explore nature, the more I come to realize we truly are taken care of by this beautiful planet. It's humbling and breathtaking and truly miraculous. 
 
...I'm just going to enjoy that thought for a moment.
..........
 
Okay, back to tea! If you don't have the herbs above, see what speaks to you from your pantry. Once you've selected three or four, look them up and see what your intuition is telling you. Kind of fun, hm?! Happy Full Moon, everyone!

Dandelion-Lavender-Rose Iced Tea

Posted by kyst

Image result for dandelion lavender rose tea

Items needed:

- Heat
- Strainer
- A Pot of Water
- A Pitcher full of Ice
- Sugar
- Fresh Dandelion: Promotes Psychic Powers, Cleansing, Spirit-Tuning
- Lavender: Happiness, Love, Peace
- Rose: Protection, Anti-Curse, Attracting Positivity

Steps:

Wash off your fresh dandelions with cold water in the strainer. Then, add the fresh dandelion, lavender, and rose petals to the pot of water and bring to a rolling boil. Let boil for ~ 2 more minutes, or until your intuition says it is finished decocting.

Turn off the heat, and let the tea sit for about 7-10 minutes to cool. If your pitcher is plastic, you don’t want to melt it.

Once cooled, pour the tea over ice into your pitcher. Straining is optional depending on whether your iced tea pitcher already has a strainer or not. Keep in mind, the herbs will sink to the bottom and the ice to the top (that’s how i like it). Add four spoonfuls of sugar, and pop it in the fridge for about an hour!

Enjoy!~

Green Gypsy Cleansing Tea

We can all admit that in this modern, super polluted, and chemically contaminated world — the control we have over our exposure to toxins is limited basically to how we live (i.e. what we put in our mouth/garden soil, put on our skin, or use in the home).

Likewise, in an effort to maintain centering — through deeply aligning myself with the ebbs and flows of nature — I have made an intentional effort to focus on the effects of the lunar cycle as it relates to diet + detox (among other things).

Now, I look to the day(s) of and surrounding the New + Full Moons with great anticipation as they provide the perfect opportunity to guide my body through a gentle cleanse.

Part of my cleansing ritual involves the consumption of lots of herbal tea — and the herbs I use to create my custom cleanse tea are allies to our bodies by ::

  • supporting proper thyroid function
  • combating adrenal fatigue
  • aiding in healthy weight loss
  • improving the clarity of the skin
  • reducing the effects of Fibromyalgia
  • removing food cravings
  • lessening stress + anxiety + depression + mood swings
  • increasing libido
  • boosting focus
  • diminishing headaches/migraines

Green Gypsy Detox Tea

Ingredients
*Purchase organically-grown or wild-harvested herbs whenever possible.
*Parts are measured by volume not weight.

  • 2 parts Nettle leaf
  • 1 part Red Clover blossoms
  • 1 part Red Clover herb
  • 1 part True (sweet) Cinnamon chips
  • 1 part Dandelion leaf
  • 1/2 part Dandelion root
  • 1/2 part Burdock root
  • 1/2 part Orange peel
  • 1/2 part Ginger root
  • 1/4 part Lemon peel
  • 1/4 part Fennel seeds

Method

  1. Measure the parts of each of the herbs listed and mix in a large bowl until well combined.
  2. Grab your single serving tea carafe (this is my absolute favorite way to make a quick cup of loose leaf tea), tea infusers, and/or tea pots…and brew a cup! OR make a larger batch by adding 4 tablespoons of the herbal blend to a quart-size glass jar, fill the jar with just boiled water, steep for a few minutes, strain and enjoy. (Note: I get all of my loose leaf tea-making supplies online from Mountain Rose Herbs.)
  3. This herbal tea blend will keep stored in a cool, dark place for approximately 6 months. (Note: I like to store all of my teas in glass jars with tight-fitting lids.)

Usage

-Drink 3-4 cups of tea daily for up to 7 days, then stop for 3. Repeat cycle until desire results are achieved.

Essiac Tea

Posted by Mystic Wolf 

Essiac%20tea.docx

Essiac tea is made of four to eight different herbs for a synergistic effect. The traditional formula is made with burdock root, slippery elm bark, Turkish rhubarb root and sheep sorrel. It's main anti-cancer herb, sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella) is a potent vermifuge against intestinal worms. It is cleansing and regenerates tissue. Burdock root is cleansing and kills cancer. Other herbs in the formula aid detoxification and support the immune system.  Dry herb blends are available so you can make your own tea. Buy organic to avoid toxic pesticides.

Essiac Tea Ingredients

 

the original 8 herbs were: Burdock (Arctium Lappa), Sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella), Slippery elm (Ulmus Rubra), Turkey rhubarb (Rheum palmatum), Red clover (Trifolium pratense), Watercress (Rorippa nasturtium aquaticum), Periwinkle (Vinca major/minor), and Goldthread (Coptis trifolia).

Essiac - a factual account of Rene Caisse and Essiac has been preserved - and perhaps that the importance of the original 8-herb formula will receive another look as the latest research findings on some of the original herbs reveal their value in reversing and preventing cancer. Blue Moon Herbs/Rene Caisse Tea is doing its part by replicating Rene Caisse's Essiac formula, to the last detail, and by being a trusted online source of Essiac information and history. We are committed to keeping Essiac available and affordable for anyone who wishes to take it.    https://renecaissetea.com/

 

We suggest the Essiac Tea cancer treatment be used by newly diagnosed cancer patients who do not have fast-growing cancer and their cancer has not spread significantly.

For advanced cancer patients, Essiac Tea can be used as a supplemental protocol to one of the major protocols, such as Cellect-Budwig, Cesium Chloride, High RF Frequency, Dirt Cheap (if you cannot afford one of the other major protocols), etc.

If you are an advanced cancer patient who has had a lot of chemotherapy, radiation or surgery or you have a potentially fast-growing cancer, do not use this protocol as your primary cancer protocol; use one of the major protocols listed here:  Treatments for Advanced Cancer Patients
Essiac Tea may also be useful in protecting the liver.  https://www.cancertutor.com/essiac/

 Please use caution with this tea and read up on it.
