Mix 1 tablespoon each of hops, skullcap,


motherwort, chamomile, and gentian. Steep 1


teaspoon of the mix in 1 cup of boiling water


for 15 minutes. Strain and sweeten. Drink


several times daily. This tonic can be taken for


symptoms as needed. Nervous irritation is one

Internal Cleanser Tonic



This is of special benefit to the blood and


digestive system. Put nasturtium flower and


leaves in salads. To make a good tonic tea, add


a small handful of the flowers and leaves to 2


cups of boiling water and allow to steep for 30


minutes. To use as a tonic, strain and drink


several cups a day for 1 week. Makes a nice


peppery tea to drink just for the pleasure of


the taste. Nasturtiums are a stimulant and a


tonic. When the ripe buds of nasturtiums are


dried and made into an infusion, they make a


laxative that is fairly strong.



Rose Hip Tonic for Cold



Chop 2 teaspoons of rose hips and add to 2


cups of boiling water. Steep, covered, 15


minutes. Strain and sweeten. Can be used as is


or added to other teas and fruit juices. Good to


use if you have a cold as it adds extra vitamin C


to your diet and will shorten the time of your


illness.
