Lavender tea is amazingly efficient in treating upset stomach, and even flatulence and colic. Studies have shown that lavender tea is an excellent remedy for stomach infections, bowel infections, depression and serious migraine headaches. When applied topically, lavender tea can alleviate cold, cough, asthma, bronchitis and other similar problems with the respiratory system.

It is the perfect solution for excessive sweating, and it can also consequently reduce the body temperature in cases of fever. Lavender contains flavonoids, tannins, courmarines, and essential oil rich in camphor, geraniol and linalool. Whole Foods, Trader Joes and other local healthy food stores are just some of the places where you can find fresh lavender.

Ingredients:

  • 2 family size tea bags (6 regular tea bags)
  • 1 tsp lavender

Preparation:

Boil some water and pour it into 12 galon mason jar or just leave the pot on the stove. Add the tea bags and lavender, and let it rest for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags.

It is not necessary to remove the lavender, but you can still do it by pouring the tea through a strainer.

If you do not like the taste, just add some honey and lemon.
Serve your lavender tea over ice.
