Healing Herbal Smoothies, Teas and Cordials

Today I thought I would share one of my herbal hubs, Healing Herbal Smoothies, Teas and Cordials. I have been writing articles on HubPages for nearly five years now and enjoy writing about herbs, crystals, healing and many spiritual subjects. HubPages is a great site for writers to share knowledge and for anyone to learn about pretty much anything you can imagine.

I originally wrote this hub in May 2016 and it is packed full of information of healing healthy drinks. The featured drinks include smoothies, teas and cordials that can all be made at home. These healing herbal drinks also do not need any expensive or complex ingredients or equipment to prepare. The full article contains recipes for healing herbal smoothies, teas and cordials including elderberry syrup, minty cacaco smoothie and peppermint and calendula tea.

All of the needed ingredients can be bought easily and many can be collected growing wild, even in towns and cities. These include elderberries and rosehips. Although it is very important to be certain of what you are picking before you consume any items. Do not take more than you require and take care so not to damage the plants or harm any wildlife or habitats. Many herbs can be grown at home in your garden or in pots on a balcony or driveway. Some are even happy to grow on an indoor windowsill. Alternatively, some supermarkets and other shops stock living herb plants that can be used. Dried herbs can also be used and if you grow your own, these can be dried and saved for later use.

As well as being a delicious addition to meals and other edibles, herbs have a powerful ability to ease, soothe and heal a huge range of illness and other difficulties.

One excellent way to take advantage of the powerful natural powers of herbs is to use them to make various types of hot and cold beverages.

Herbal Teas

There are many herbal teas that can be bought easily and so maybe familiar. Examples of this include peppermint, nettle, chamomile and fennel teas which can be bought from supermarkets, health food shops and other retailers in tea bags much like regular tea. These can be drunk purely for their tastes but do also possess health benefits that can be utilised. Peppermint tea is known to an useful in soothing stomach upsets and any digestive upset. Fennel tea can help with trapped wind and can be an excellent and natural way to ease wind and colic in babies. If mum is breastfeeding, she can drink the tea and it’s benefits will pass to her baby through her milk.
