OH tea infusions...
What is a tea infusion? Basically it is herbs that are steeped for hours in hot water, strained, and then drank in place of water. I love them. I have played around with a few of them and I have found Nettle Leaf and Red Clover to be my favorite combination. Nettle leaf is incredibly nourishing to your adrenal glands and endocrine system as a whole. It has the ability to balance hormone levels naturally and is also an anti-inflammatory. Nettle leaf also contains many different minerals such as magnesium and potassium as well as vitamins such as A, D, K and many B vitamins. It's basically a powerhouse. Red Clover is another one of my favorites because it is also jam packed with nutrients such as selenium, magnesium, iron, and manganese as well as vitamin A and various B vitamins. This herb is amazing for cleansing the lymph and building blood. It is also great for breaking up and reducing stored fat to be flushed out of the body. If you tend to feel fatigued or exhausted, red clover is a great addition because it has a great energizing effect and it also has the ability to cleanse toxic heavy metals from the body.
This infusion is incredibly easy to make.
3 tbsp Organic Nettle Leaf
3 tbsp Organic Red Clover
32 ounces filtered hot water
Place all the ingredients in a glass jar or container and steep for at least 4 hours. Strain the mixture and keep in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
When serving the mixture, cut it in half with fresh, filtered water and drink in place of water. I usually pour 16 oz in a jar or water bottle and top of with 16 oz of filtered water and drink this throughout the day.
Your body will thank you for the beautiful addition of these healing herbs. Enjoy lovelies xo
