Ayurveda promotes Beauty from the Inside. This tisane, or herbal tea, from Tata Harper Skincare, is Pitta-reducing, hormone-balancing, and great for your skin.
2 tbs lemon balm
1 tbs lavender flowers
1 tbs peppermint
1 tbs chamomile flowers
1 tbs rose petals
1 tbs nettle
1 tbs alfalfa
1 tbs rose hips
2 tsp dandelion leaves

Begin by combining all herbs in a medium-size bowl and stir to blend. You can store the tea in a tightly sealed tin, jar, plastic tub or bag away from light in a cool, dry place. It is best if used within 6 months.
To make a cup of this fabulous tea bring one cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon of tea. Cover and allow to steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain before drinking. Add honey, cream, or lemon if desired.
What do you do to feel beautiful?
Sounds wonderful! I’ve been experimenting with lots of different teas lately. Lemon Balm is a great one! To feel beautiful, I do a coconut oil massage and then shower and straighten my hair so that it’s flowey! Then I put on mascara and batt my eyelashes! lol I’m such a girly girl! Sending so much love to you!
Yes, Jenna, I share your appreciation for lemon balm, and love your playful approach to beauty! Ha. Today I will bat my eyes in honor of you: You, already a great beauty in all ways. Thank you for being in our lives.
I went to the store earlier today and bought all the herbs and just made this and it is absolutely wonderful. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.
