Cool and Calm Hibiscus Sun Tea

This tea is best in the summertime, it contains the tastes of sweet, bitter and astringent to help us stay in balance this time of year. This tea is a powerful blood tonic and helps our skin look great, it also helps with water retention.

  • 1/3 cup dried Hibiscus
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 TBS Peppermint
  • 1 TBS Rose petals
  • 1 tsp Brahmi or Gotu Kola
  • 1 tsp Shatavari
  • 1 tsp Fennel
  • 1 calendula flower
  • 1-2 Limes ~ Juiced
  • 1/4 cup Honey or Sucunat

In the morning, combine the herbal ingredients and put into a 2 quart glass jar. If you don’t have all of the ingredients on hand, thats okay as long as you hav Hibiscus, sweeter and lime, it will taste great! Fill the jar with 7 cups of blessed water. Seal the jar with a lid and place outside for 4-5 hours. After infusion is complete, bring inside, strain, add sweetener and stir, add lime and enjoy! Will keep well sealed in refrigerator for 2-3 days.

Dandelion Tonic

Spring is here and my yard is full of the amazing dandelion. Dandelion is not a weed as its  health benefits are vast, they include relief from liver disorders, diabetes, urinary disorders, acne, jaundice, cancer, and anemia. It also helps in maintaining bone health, skin care, and weight loss.

It might be a weed to some people but its truly one of natures most beneficial plants!


Dandelion, which literally translates into “lion’s tooth” in French, is rich in vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, calcium, and detoxifiers, which explains its common inclusion in medicines.


2 tbsp Dandy Blend
1 cup hot water
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tsp ghee
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch ground cardamom

Combine the Dandy Blend and piping hot water into your blender pitcher. Add the remaining ingredients. Blend for 30 seconds on high until well combined and frothy. Pour into a mug and enjoy hot!

Makes one serving
