A great way of enhancing your well-being is to get into the habit of drinking herbal teas daily. The following recipes are for dried herb mixtures that can be made into teas. All dried herb mixtures should be stored in airtight jars away from the light — they'll keep at their best for up to a year this way. To make the tea, mix 1-2 teaspoons of the dried herb mixture into a mug of boiling water and leave to infuse for several minutes. Once teas are made, they should be consumed immediately for best results.
This tea will calm a wide-awake mind.
