As most of you know I own Natural Herbal Living Magazine and Herb Box. Our November magazine and herb box theme was rose, and in it was this wonderful autumn tonic tea. It was such a huge hit that I have people asking me daily for the recipe. Here it is!
The Autumn Tonic Tea is full of herbs that will nourish the body and give it the nutrients it needs to stay healthy through the cold winter months.
Nettles (where to buy) are highly nutritious. High in magnesium, potassium, calcium, iron, manganese vitamin A, B vitamins and more they are a great herb to incorporate into every day life to nourish the body and provide key nutrients.
Spearmint (where to buy) is a wonderful mint that is more subtle than peppermint. It adds a delicious flavor and a nice vitamin C boost. Like most mints, it is wonderful for digestive complaints.
Lemon Balm (where to buy) is a wonderful nervine, which is great to ease anxiety, stress, and tension. It is antiviral and wonderful for stomach aches, pains, nausea and gas and is antispasmodic.
Mullein (where to buy) is very grounding. Although it is most commonly known as a respiratory tonic (which it most certainly excels at), it is a wonderful lymphatic tonic and promotes lymphatic movement. It helps prevent colds and coughs from settling deeply in the lungs. It is also anti-inflammatory and great for musculoskelital pain.
Dandelion (where to buy) is another very nutritious herb that is great to incorporate into every day life. It has high levels of vitamin A and B vitamins, calcium, potassium, and magnesium. It contains inulin which helps the body process sugars more efficiently through the liver, pectin which helps aid in detoxification. It helps detoxify and nourish the body and support proper hormone function.
Red Clover (where to buy) is also full of wonderful nutrients including calcium, chromium, magnesium, niacin, phosphorus, potassium, thiamine, and vitamin C, as well as isoflavones. It is blood purifying, anti-oxidant, and a great addition to any daily herbal regime.
Rose hips (where to buy) are full of vitamin C, anti-oxidants, and all sorts of good things. You can read all about it in our Rose issue.
Ginger (where to buy) is very warming to the system and encourages movement of the fluids throughout the body. It is also an antimicrobial herb, and great for digestive stagnation and upset. To learn all about the health benefits of Ginger see our ginger issue.
