Face it!! We can all use a tonic for vitality. Something that supports health and our immune system and can be used regularly.
These herbs are two of my favorites. They can be used as food or a tea tonic. Nettles and Calendula.
Both can be grown easily. These herbs can also be taken in capsule form.
Nettle is a nutrient dense herb. Good for urinary tract health, arthritis, pain, blood sugar management, allergies, calcium in an easily absorbed form, and high in silica, potassium and magnesium. It is a diuretic so remain hydrated when using this herb. I love it and try to use it daily. Nettles is tasty as pesto.
Calendula is an anti-inflammatory, antiviral and is very soothing on gut lining. Two tea bags in 1 cup of warm water makes a potent skin wash. I love the bright orange or yellow in teas. Fresh it is really good in salads.
