Welcome Summer Solstice
The official mark of astrological summer and the longest day of the year!
With the increased sun exposure & solar energy-it's a buzzing time of year, not to mention, well it's hot.
This Summer Solstice Herbal Sun Tea is a perfectly balanced blend of supportive herbs to help keep your body cool, hydrated, and refreshed.
This new blend is full of cooling herbs perfect for a hot summer's day:
Damiana provides a mood boost, toning the nervous system to ease anxiety and tension without making you feel sedated or sleepy. Leaving you feeling uplifted and excited.
Hibiscus flowers are full of antioxidants, which can help protect the body & cells from damage. Recent studies have also shown that hibiscus may help reduce inflammation in the body & lower blood pressure and cholesterol.
Lemongrass acts as a central nervous system toner, strengthening it and offering a more calm and stable nervous system. It also has an anti-pyretic and diaphoretic effect, meaning it helps to break a fever that has run to dangerously high temperatures by inducing sweating
Mint is both refreshing & cooling while also aiding the digestive system.
Rose adds a light floral flavor to this blend and added support for cooling the body and gently supporting the heart.
Topped with a sprinkle of vanilla dust, this is the perfect recipe for a summer tea party!
Harness the solar power of this summer solstice by making a Sun Tea!
The Sun Tea method is simple yet effective for herbal infusions of leaves & flowers. You don't even need hot water!
While there is no one way to make sun tea, a good rule to follow would be:
1 TBSP of tea for every 8 oz. of water
I also highly suggest using a clear glass container, jar, pitcher, or teapot, as long as the sun's rays can penetrate the material.
I used a Quart Sized Mason Jar and used 4 TBSP or 1/4 C of our Summer Solstice Tea Blend.
Simply fill the rest of the container with cold/room temperature water, cover & infuse in the sunshine for at least 2 hours.
Strain out herbs & enjoy!
