Red Clover-I wish I had this herb growing wild nearby (I did find a field in the mountains, and wished I could go and gather)! Since I can't get it fresh, I order from MountainRoseHerbs and use it dried. Red Clover is high in phytoestrogens, it is a lymphatic cleanser, and has been said to be an anti-cancer remedy for women. I love the way it smells and tastes!
Blessed Thistle-is wonderful for inflammation and easing headaches. It strengthens the brain and heart, as well as purifying the liver.
Oatstraw-This is a great tonic for the whole system. It is known as a restorative nerve tonic, and it is rich in calcium, iron and magnesium.
Black Cohosh-A popular menopausal treatment as it is both a stimulant and a relaxant for the female system. I used the roots and they have a bitter flavor, that I don't really care for. Therefore I am making a tincture of the roots so next time I make a batch of this tea, I will omit it.
Orange and Lemon peels-Whenever we buy organic citrus, I save the peels, dry them and add them as a flavor enhancer to my teas. Of course they are rich in vitamin C, and that's always a good thing.
