March is a month of green…with spring flowers popping up, new green leaves decorating the trees and St. Patrick’s Day coming we are finding inspiration in this beautiful & grounding theme. Here we have dandelion with orange and mint with cucumber together for fresh Libre herb infusions.          

The Eclectic Element          original mint with cucumber

 

Adding herbs to your infusions not only adds flavour but health benefits too!

Here are a few green herbs and their benefits for you to try with your next cup of tea:

Mint – high in antioxidants, natural decongestant and aids indigestion

Dandelion – helps to detoxify the liver, decrease joint and muscle pain

Thyme – is a natural anti – fungal and antibiotic, great for respiratory support

Basil – reduces blood glucose levels, lowers cholesterol and reduces asthma symptoms

Oregano – a natural histamine reducer and helps with nasal and respiratory congestion

Nettle – Helps with coughs, asthma, muscle & joint problems, allergies

Rosemary – Helps with headaches and fevers, poor circulation

 

Steeping fresh herbs are always best for taste and health benefits, but dried herbs can be used if fresh are not available.

health and healing

    I like to try variety of infusions. Oregano is the most which I use due to allergies.
    Mint is good too.

    The nearest we have to adding herbs to our tea is using ginger and honey. Will have to try some of our herbs next

    Fresh sprigs of mint, and the taste reminds me of sitting on a veranda in the deep South.

    I love blending teas and enjoy the health benefits of licorice and nettles for colds and to keep me out of trouble.

    I haven’t tried any yet because I don’t have an infuser bottle. But I’d love to try oregano and lemon

    Lemon and mint are one of my favorites but whenever I can find fresh lemongrass, I use it with ginger slices.

    I haven’t really tried anything yet!! Poor me! Sometimes, I do add Lemon + Mint to my iced green tea, though.
