Summertime brings us so much healing in the form of the suns rays to the bounty of plant life. This is the time to enjoy herbs, flowers and plants in their natural form. You may know them as essential oils, but having the actual plant is a summertime treat you don't want to miss.
One of my favorite ways to enjoy Summer's bounty is by making teas. Pretty much everything edible makes a great tea. I have four of them in my fridge now and drink them all daily.
Mint may be an obvious choice, but try these summer beauties - I found mine at my local farmer's market.
Lemongrass is a perfect tea for a hot summer's day. It is helpful for digestion, high blood pressure and the lowering of blood sugar. This is so refreshing on cold and also makes a beautiful hair rinse and face toner. Pregnant women and diabetics should use this as a hair rinse only - due to its powerful properties in lowering blood sugar.
