Hurricane Recovery Tea

We were only mildly effected in Chicagoland by Hurricane Sandy.  We had a few days of fierce winds with biting cold that made frost in air that was not actually cold enough for it.  But I know on the east coast things were rougher.

So take a moment thank the heavens you are still here and enjoy this tea which is formulated to relieve stress and relax tension.

Mellow Mood Tea
This tea is made with the most palatable of the calming herbs. Blended together, they'll defuse stress and anxiety and promote sound sleep.

1 tsp. chamomile flowers
1 tsp. lavender spikes
1 tsp. kava leaves
1 tsp. lemon balm leaves
1 tsp. marjoram
1 spray valerian flowers
1 quart water

In a large saucepan, steep the chamomile, lavender, kava, lemon balm, marjoram, and valerian to taste in the freshly boiled water.  Strain out the plant material. Drink the tea hot or cool.  Drink  as often as needed, refrigerating any left over for later use.

Update: My freind Tina from the Essential Herbal Blog has posted some places where you can help if you are interested.  Here is the link to her posting: http://theessentialherbal.blogspot.com/2012/11/just-waiting-for-sun.html


  1. I'm lifting my cup to you! Thanks for the blend. We just keep getting rain, but it is nothing like the east coast has endured. We were lucky as you were. xxoo Nancy

  2. Glad to know you in Pittsburgh were ok! Tina from Essential Herbal only lost a couple trees. I am so glad many of my freinds were spared. Now we just need to worry and pray for the rest. M
