I found a new delightful tea! Blackberry leaf which is a close relative to the Rasperry leaf another favorite of mine.
Blackberry leaves are high in vitamins and nutrients like vitamin A,C, E, K and B 1,2,3 and 6, also calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, potassium, and zinc. It may help relieve diarrhea, inflammation and so many other properties. Recently I had a tummy issue and drinking this throughout the day helped the bubbles in my stomache and other issues if you know what I mean. Some tea and essential oils aided in a good night sleep and woke up new again!
NOW I have some sad news. Bulk Herb Store who we love to share with you is going out of business. So as you read these new recipes, go visit and help this Christian family move into another chapter of their life.
We love Bulk Herb Store and hope you find some wonderful teas and herbs to make up your own.
Each recipe below makes 1/2 pint cute little mason jar!
