Elderflowers: Elderflower is used for swollen sinuses (sinusitis), colds, influenza (flu), swine flu, bronchitis, diabetes, and constipation.
Wild Rose Petals: Rose petals are mildly sedative, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-parasitic. They’re also mild laxatives, a good supportive tonic for the heart, and great for lowering cholesterol.
Anise Hyssop Leaf with Flowering Tops: Used as an infusion in tea and cold remedies. Will relieve congestion. Being diaphoretic, a hot infusion will induce perspiration and is therefore useful in treating fevers.
Red Clover: is commonly used as an alternative herb to support skin health, both through internal and external use, and is also considered a mild lymphatic. Herbalists use it for a variety of skin ailments, from eczema to psoriasis to acne.
This brilliant tea is birthed by a cookbook Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook by Dina Falconi, she talks about the “Flower Power” tea, made with wildflowers. What exactly is a infusion type tea? This is where you would use dried herbs to make a delicious tasting tea.
There are many types of herbal teas that one can make, and as you adventure out on your journey of making teas keep in mind that you will need more if you are using fresh herbs or flowers; than you would if you already had them dried out.
Another good point of Dina Falconi’s book Foraging & Feasting: A Field Guide and Wild Food Cookbook is that it showed plant maps for a lot of her herbs that she uses. By understanding how the plant itself is made up you will be able to understand what part of the plant to take and use within your teas.
