Herbcraft // Lavender and Lemongrass Tea

On warm summer days we need refreshment and this tea is fragrant and fresh enough to do just that.

Step One: Gather dried herbs - lemongrass and lavender flowers.

Step 2: Mix herbs together - 2 parts lemongrass to 1 part lavender. 
(If you want a milder lavender flavour, try 2 1/2 parts lemongrass to 1/2 a part lavender).

Step 3 - Option A: Put a teaspoon of the mix into teabag sachets, and use one per cup.

Step 3 - Option B: Add herb mix direct to your teapot if you have a strainer. 

Enjoy the soothing and refreshing properties of these wonderful herbs...

Lavender: eases depression, benefits the digestion, antispasmodic, soothes anxiety and tension headaches, relieves exhaustion and migraines.

Lemongrass: antispasmodic, soothes the digestive system, has a positive effect on nervous conditions and provides a boost if you're feeling tired.
