One-Cup Tisane

It's cold and flu season. Fortunately there are nature's remedies to help us through it! Here's a recipe for One-Cup Tisane, an herbal blend that helps the immune system and promotes healing. If you don't have all these herbs on hand, a good health food store probably carries them in bulk and you can purchase them there. If you find all but one or two, go ahead and make the tea anyway. . .even substituting a similar herb if desired. For good health!

One-Cup Tisane

1 cup pennyroyal
1 cup catnip
1 cup horehound
1 cup spearmint
1 cup sage
1 cup lemon verbena
1 cup white yarrow

Gently mix all the herbs together in a large container. Keep airtight when not in use. To make, pour 4 cups of boiling water over 2 1/2 teaspoons of this herbal blend. Cover and allow to steep for ten minutes. Strain and sweeten with honey or stevia. Reheat and repeat, drinking one cup of this tisane every 2 - 3 hours.


  1. This sounds wondeful, Thank you. Clarice

  2. The tea sounds wonderful, and I love the little glass tea pot. You're going to make a tea drinker out of me yet!!
