For total ease, individually brew some tea out of the first four herbs. Usually, about ¼-1/2 teaspoon of the herb per cup of hot water will work fine. You can adjust the amount according to your taste. Steep for about 5 minutes. If you want to have a stronger taste, steep for a longer time.
You can use teas as the best and easiest natural healing remedies. Following are some natural teas you can make:
1. Chamomile tea
Chamomile tea is well known for its soothing effect. Many people like to enjoy a cup after having a hectic day.
2. Ginger tea
To make ginger tea, simply grate some fresh ginger or you can also use the powdered form of ginger. You won’t be needing any Dramamine if you stir some ginger into a hot cup of water before boarding on a plane flight. Ginger is a great healing tool and natural remedy.
3. Garlic tea
Garlic (in all forms) is known to be a great anti-fungal & natural anti-biotic. Make yourself a cup of garlic tea. Mince fresh garlic and steep it in hot water for five minutes. Strain the tea before drinking, if desired. You can also use powdered garlic if fresh garlic is not available.
4. Peppermint tea
If you have an upset or queasy stomach, peppermint tea will settle that. It is also useful during “gas attacks”. Moreover, it tastes good.
So, if you are not feeling well and need a boost, you don’t have to use chemical treatments, just go back to nature for the remedies.
