Herbal Digestif

When I've been in Europe, I've noticed they often serve "digestif teas" after dinner. So I decided to start making my own from fresh herbs growing in my garden or leftover in my fridge. I serve them on this Italian tray my dear friend gave me.

Herbs have so many amazing health benefits!

I use these three herbs because I have tons of them growing in my garden yet look...

MINT : Good for IBS, relieves indigestion and excellent for my old eyes!

FENNEL: Good for relief from anemia, indigestion, gas, constipation, diarrhea and menstrual problems. 

OREGANO:  Good for aching muscles, asthma, cramping, diarrhea, indigestion, colds and overall health. Associated with JOY & HAPPINESS according to the Greeks and Romans! (Perfect!)

And if you bought a big bunch of basil and it's sitting in your fridge with nowhere to go....make it into basil tea. Look at it's bennies..

BASIL:  Helps maintain skin health, boosts digestion and detoxifies the body aiding in disease prevention.

I put a big handful of each in a pot of water. Bring to a boil and then let sit for an hour to infuse all the goodness. You can also pour boiling water over the herbs in a tea pot, yet I prefer it my way because I can make large quantities all at once.

Pour into cups and serve as an after dinner digestif to your guests OR after the herbs seep, pour into a big mason jar and refrigerate and drink cold any time of the day! 

Happy Digesting!
