How about a little Monday morning tip? Next time one of your dear girlfriends comes by for a little heart to heart, instead of offering a glass of wine, make a pot of lemon verbena tea on ice. I did just that the other day, and on her way out Lola said she felt so relaxed - like she unloaded a whole bag of anxiousness in a short one-hour sit-down in my kitchen. That tea is magic!
Supposedly, lemon verbena is a wonderful herb that strengthens the nervous system, combats stress, alleviates depression and even keeps the mosquitoes away! Simply steep 10 leaves in boiled water for 10-15 minutes, cover then strain it and drink it hot or cold. (The little things in life).
Would you try it? What's your favourite herbal tea? xo
P.S: Made this one over the weekend.
P.P.S: Plus, this detoxifying mint tea.
