Herbal Teas are at the bottom of the potency scale for herbal supplements, but they are an easy way to begin your relationship with herbs, and can deliver some of the most effective medicinal properties. They can be steeped both hot or cold, and provide an array of benefits. See the "How To Use" section below for steeping instructions.


  • Nettle: A natural source of essential micronutrients like calcium, iron, manganese, potassium, B complex, Vitamin A, and chlorophyll, as well as protein and fiber! With a variety of medicinal properties including anticarcinogenic, antihistamine, astringent, diuretic, expectorant, hemostatic, hypoglycemic, hypotensive, stimulant, tonic, antispasmotic, decongestant, antihistamine, and much more, Nettle is one of the most well-rounded and all-purpose herbs!


  • Mullein: Because of its expectorant AND demulcent properties, Mullein is one of the most commonly used herbs during times of respiratory distress. It has been known to reduce inflammation in lung tissue, relievesymptoms of asthma and other chronic respiratory disorders, and ease both dry or mucousy cough.


  • Plantain: A common "weed herb" with a powerhouse of immune supporting properties. Most commonly Plantain is used topically as a spit poultice, but Plantain is also highly effective for internal use. Plantain is effective at drawing out heat from the body, especially during illness. It is also useful for calming inflammation in the GI tract, and restoring damaged mucosa. Most notably, Plantain contains properties that help to inhibit mast cell degranulation and histamine release, the typical cuases of allergy symptoms (redness, coughing, itching, etc.). Plantain can also be useful in calming dry cough, releasing mucous, calming throat irritation, and easing the digestive tract.


  • Spearmint: Spearmint has a wide variety of medicinal uses including improving respiratory health, balancing hormones, improving digestion and circulation, antabacterial uses, and more! Spearmint contains the property menthol which acts as a natural sedative, lowering stress hormones and creating an overall sense of calm. Regular Speearmint tea is recommended for those suffering from chronic stress and anxiety.

  • Brewing loose leaf tea may be intimidating at first, but loose herbal infusions are actually more versatile than pre-bagged teas! Here are a few of my best tips for brewing the perfect cup of tea, hot or cold!

    The amount of tea may vary based on the specific blend. Loose herbal blends tend to be fluffier than tea leaves, so you may need more volume to get a full-flavored cup. All of my blends are naturally caffeine free, but some do contain bitter herbs that may create a more bitter tasting cup of tea if too much material is used.

    Quantity: I recommend beginning with 1-2 teaspoons and working up to 1/2 tablespoon per 6 oz of water. 

    Steep time will also vary based on the type of blend you are using and the desired result. Caffeine free herbal blends typically need a slightly linger steep time to achieve the full flavor, especially when brewed cold.

    Hot Brewing: Add desired amount (1 tsp - 1/2 tbsp per 6 oz water) to tea infuser or steeping bag and place in a cup. Pour 6-8 oz of boiling water over the infusion and allow to steep until desired result is achieved. Herbal infusions containing bolder flavor herbs like Peppermint, Cloves, Cinnamon, or bitter herbs will require less steeping time. I recommend 1-3 minutes, or longer for a more intense flavor. 

    Cold Brewing: I typically prefer cold brewing herbl infusions for daily use, or for making larger amounts at a time (example: brewing a liter at a time). Cold brewing is also a great way to release more plant properties over time. Begin by boiling enough water to fill your desired container size. Using the basic quantity recommendations (1 tsp - 1/2 tbsp per 6 oz water) add herbs to a steeping bag and place in container. Pour over boiling water and allow to steep until the infusion reaches room temperature. You will notice a bolder color right away due to the hot water, it may lighten up over time. Once the infusion reaches room temperature, store the container in teh fridge until fully steeped. There are no set rules on steeping time for cold brewing. You may choose to remove your infusion from the fridge once it reaches your desired temperature. I like to allow my cold brews to steep 6-24 hours to maximize the release of herbal properties. Brewed herbal infusions may be stored in the fridge for 24-48 hours before herbs are removed, or up to a week once herbs are strained. I recommend adding any desired sweetener to your infusion while the water is still hot!

    Extras: Infusions may be enjoyed however you usually take your tea. I love to add a bit of raw cane sugar or raw honey to my cold brew infusions. Be sure to add your sweetener while the water is still hot for easier assimilation. I also enjoy my hot infusions with raw cream for a more rounded flavor. I recommend brewing hot infusions slightly longer if you intend to include cream or milk.
