Indigenous Medicine Flower Tea



Indigenous "Medicine Flower" Tea
Herbal tea has lots of wonderful health benefits. From soothing a troubled tummy to easing insomnia and calming a troubled mind, herbs have all sorts of healing powers. Drinking herbal tea can also be a great source of vitamins and minerals.

Herbal tea isn’t really made from tea, which is a specific kind of plant. The word tisane is more accurate, since herbal tea is an infusion of leaves, seeds, roots or bark, extracted in hot water. When we drink a well-steeped herbal tea, we get all the plant’s benefits in an easily digestible state. We get more benefits from a good drinking herbal tea than from taking vitamins.

Steep your loose tea long enough, in some cases, as long as 10 to 15 minutes, to really bring out all the healthful properties. Cover the vessel to lock in the properties.

For centuries, the indigenous people right here in the north east coast of American have used herbs and spices to enhance the taste of food and drink, and to help and heal their bodies, as well.

Passed from generation to generation, the wealth of information about the healing powers of this herbal blend for our physical, mental, emotional, social, and spiritual selves continues to hold true today.

As you drink Indigenous “Medicine Flower” Tea, you are giving your body the building blocks it needs to manufacture tissues and hormones necessary for good health.  If you drink tea every day, you can make a significant change to your mood, your skin, your well-being and energy.

The main ingredient, Chickweed, stimulates metabolism and makes our bodies burn fat for fuel. It also stimulates the digestive system and helps for constipation.

Chickweed, when incorporated with healthy lifestyle habits such as a well-balanced diet and regular exercise, is an effective formulation for achieving long term weight loss.

Chickweed tea is high in potassium and is proven to reduce food cravings making it the perfect tea to drink when dieting.

Chickweed tea is an effective, caffeine- and drug-free and is enjoyable to the taste.

Drinking chickweed tea will aid in digestion and help reduce symptoms of indigestion, bladder infection and peptic or gastric ulcers. Chickweed acts as a diuretic and a mild laxative and can help relieve symptoms of constipation.

The second ingredient Sage has one of the longest histories of use of any culinary or medicinal herb. Ancient indigenous in North America used it as a fertility drug.  Sage stopped bleeding of wounds and cleaned ulcers and sores, hoarseness and coughs.  A tea made from sage leaves has had a long history of use to treat sore throats and coughs; often by gargling. It is also used by herbalists for rheumatism, excessive menstrual bleeding, and to dry up a mother's milk when nursing was stopped. It is also used for strengthening the nervous system, improving memory, and sharpening the senses.

Sage Tea is a valuable drink for the reduction of fevers and to reduce the nervous excitement accompanying brain and nervous diseases. It has a reputation as a remedy, given in small and often-repeated doses, for many ailments. It is a stimulant tonic in debility of the stomach and nervous system and weakness of digestion generally. It is considered a useful medicine in typhoid fever and beneficial in biliousness and liver complaints, kidney troubles, hemorrhage from the lungs or stomach, for colds in the head as well as sore throat, quinsy, measles, for pains in the joints, lethargy and palsy.

When you drink “Medicine Flower” Tea and combine this with “Medicine Flower” Oil, your senses will be pleasantly stimulated... the warmth of the cup in your hands... along with the feel of your smooth skin… the aromatherapy of the wonderful fragrances combined... and, the calming effects of a whole body experience.

The third ingredient, Rosemary is an herb that has been in use since ancient times. It is a good source of vitamin A, thiamine and magnesium, and a very good source of vitamin C, vitamin B-6, folate, calcium, iron and manganese.

As a tea of fresh or dry herb, rosemary has both aromatic and healing properties; it may be consumed for its antioxidant properties and to treat gastrointestinal disorders.

Finally the last ingredient Peppermint tea has been proven to have amazing health and beauty benefits. When it comes to stress and anxiety, peppermint tea is one of your best allies. The menthol that is naturally present in the tea is a muscle relaxant; the relaxation of the muscles can be an enormous component of natural stress and anxiety relief.

Drinking peppermint tea before bed has been proven to give you a more restful sleep. Not only does the relaxation of the muscles lead to more restful sleep, the tea has properties that can even help you dream more vividly.  Peppermint tea is a natural decongestant.  It can act as an appetite suppressant, making it easier to stick to your healthy eating goals.

Peppermint tea offers a slight boost in estrogen levels to some drinkers, which can help curb these hormonal problems and aid in clearing up acne.

Peppermint tea is also a great natural remedy for certain stomach ailments, including bloating and gas.  DO NOT USE IF YOU ARE USING MEDICATION OR PREGNANT OR NURSING.  ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN.
