This is my go to tea to remedy a stressful day, help me sleep or improve my mood. It is flavourful and relaxing.
My clients enjoy this one a lot.
Grind the herbs in a mortar and pestle or with a juicer or herb grinder.
Store in a cool, dry, dark place.
1 tablespoon of tea per cup of boiling water, let steep for 5-10 minutes covered.
Dose: 1 cup of tea as needed, up to 3 cups per day
Chamomile: sedative effect, antispasmodic, muscle relaxant, studies have shown that chamomile works on the same part of your brain and nervous system as anti-stress medication
Lavender: carminative, sedative, bitter, antidepressant, hypnotic
Linden: nervine, anxiolytic (eases anxiety), antispasmodic, hypotensive
Skullcap: nervine, antispasmodic, relaxant, mood stabilser
Rose: nervine with affinity for uplifting mood and relieving depression, antispasmodic, sedative
Linden? I would not have though of that.
Linden is absolutely amazing. Here in the Czech Republic, it is like a national treasure and used by Czech grandmas everywhere to sooth the savage beast…

I had never seen it until only a few years ago. It is a well rated street tree, but that is about all.
