**Note: I am not a health care professional. I am a woman from a long line of Applachian herbalists who has spent time around growing and rendering herbs into teas.
How about growing four flowers that are not only beautifully scented and gorgeous to look at, but also can be rendered into healthy teas? Win - Win - Win!
Here's my four faves.
Chamomile: Beautiful little white daisy-looking prolific flowers. Chamomile is a great tummy tamer and nighttime relaxing, chilling, anti-anxiety bliss. With all its antioxidants, it can help prevent heart disease and cancer.
Lavender: Beautiful purple lovely-scented flowers. Lavender is a powerhouse - depression, high blood pressure, nausea, eczema and menstral pain helper. Fantastic for hair and skin care.
Consider mixing these up depending on what you want to focus on -
Immunity: Echinacea and lavender
Depression: Hibiscus and lavender
Diabetes/overweight/drinking: Hibiscus and lavender
Anxiety/insomnia: Chamomile and lavender
High blood pressure: Hibiscus, Echinacea and lavender
