Swamp Juice

Monday, May 02, 2016

Hello all,
Today I thought I'd share a bit about my herbal infusions. I've been doing these for nearly 2 years and credit them with reducing my chronic sinus problems. So, every morning, one of the first things I do is get myself a jar of dandelion and nettle herbal infusion going. I actually refer to it as swamp juice. It doesn't taste good - I'm not going to lie. But I drink it every day, with nothing added to it.

The difference between an herbal tea and this herbal infusion I'm drinking is really just the amount of herb used and the amount of time it's allowed to sit around. I measure out 1/2 an ounce of dandelion leaves and 1/2 an ounce of nettle leaves each day. Pour them into a quart jar and fill it with boiling water. Then I let it sit around for 5 or 6 hours before I strain it and drink it. Here are a few snaps.

    I need to look into this. I have problem sinuses and don't like to take traditional medications.

    I've always admired people who can ingest nasty tasting stuff for the sake of health. Just don't have it in me...lol. Must be good for you, always heard about dandelion and more recently the nettle. A "toast" to your good health. 😊
