Calming Catnip Herbal Tea Recipe
For 1 serving:
For 10 servings:
  • ⅓ cup and 2 Tbsp Peppermint
  • ⅓ cup and 2 Tbsp Catnip
  • ¾ cup Chamomile
  • (Use 3 T per 16 oz of filtered water)
  1. If you're making the larger, 10 serving batch, then combine all of your herbs together in a glass jar and shake to combine. You can also put them into a coffee grinder and give it a few pulses to break up the chamomile and blend everything together well.
  2. If you’re using the larger recipe, then use 3 T of herb for each 16 oz cup of tea. If you're just doing 1 serving, then just put all of your herbs into your cup. Steep your herbs for 4 minutes, then strain. Make sure you squeeze all of the water from your herbs, since this liquid is the most potent.
  3. Sweeten with stevia or beautiful raw honey if desired and drink as needed throughout the day. This tea is particularly helpful right after a meal and before bedtime.
It may seem like this is a large amount of herbs for 1 cup of tea, but these are the recommended dosages for each herb to get medicinal results. Yes, food is medicine, but there is a difference between using them for taste in food, and using them to reap their therapeutic benefits.
