What’s In My Cup? Post Camping Cleanse Edition

What's In My Cup?

This has been a really busy summer. I moved here to be close to nature so that I could camp on a whim and enjoy the glorious spirit of trees. Well everyone, we went camping, FINALLY, out at Priest Draw. Yeah, it is Fall not Summer but shoot it is better late than never.

Well although camping is an excellent way to commune with nature and in turn your inner spirit guides, I have a tendency to get… backed up. It might be because we eat steak and potatoes and drink tons of coffee while we camp, but it might not… it is why. Apparently boyfriend is the same because he requested a tea from me that would help him to relieve his blockage and get his bowels working normally again.

This Blend Will Aide in Relieving:

  • constipation
  • nausea
  • cramps
  • stress
  • IBS

Simply Mix Together:

1TB Chamomile

1/2 TB Dandelion Root

1/2 TB Spearmint

Put the listed herbs into your tea ball and into your favorite big old mug. Pour 6-8 oz of boiling water over your tea ball and let steep for 10-15 minutes or until the desired flavor is reached, as long as you steep for 5 minutes to extract the healing agents from the herbs. Sit in a comfortable place with a happy song on or with a fun, exciting book. The spearmint will stick out to you with a freshness in the finish of the taste.

Sit there with your tea and take in the bright, sweet aroma. Repeat the mantra: I can.

This week’s blend goes out the the ladies who have a visit from Aunt Flo. Obviously the health benefits are worthwhile for everyone but I needed some relief from my PMS and I turned to my herb friends.

Definitely a big helper with anyone dealing with stomach cramps or issue, a sassy mood, body pain and more. Brew this one up hot, it is much better in a warm decoction.

This Specific Blend Will Aid In:

-IBS, stomach cramping, digestion

-Menstrual cramps and body pain

-Uplifting mood

-Awakening the senses

Simply Mix Together:

1.5 TB Spearmint

0.5 tsp Kava Kava

0.5 tsp Angelica Root

Place herbs into tea ball or tea bag. Pour hot water into mug over herbs, let steep 10-15 minutes or until desired decoction is achieved. Use any time of the day, works best in the afternoon or whenever you may have unnerving pain in the body.

Beware of Kava Kava root if you have any issues with your liver. Consult a doctor if you have a history of health problems related to your liver.

Hold your freshly brewed cup of happy and meditate on the mantra: Happiness resides within.
