I recently posted on my Tumblr page and in my Twitter feed how I created an herbal blend to use as a tea that helps my husband control his asthma symptoms and received a LOT of feed back asking for the recipe.
So as promised, here is the recipe with pictures of some of the herbs so you can see what it looks like.
Enjoy and happy healing!
What you will need:
- Hyssop (2tsp)
- Garcinia powder (1 tsp.)
- Chickweed (2tsp)
- Linden FLowers (3 tsp.)
- Thyme (1 tsp.)
- Lobelia ( 3 tsp.)
- Mutamba Powder (1/2 tsp.)
- Anise Seeds (small handful)
Add all dry ingredients to a pot of purified water (about 3 cups of water) and simmer on stove for 20 minutes at medium low heat.
Let it seep for another 30 minutes with no heat.
Refrigerate or drink warm.
You can add some pure honey, agave or what ever natural sweetener you prefer – we prefer it unsweetened as many of the herbs used have a natural ‘sweetness’ to them already.
For poorly controlled asthma, like my husband’s, I’d suggest drinking this daily for about a week and then as needed there after.
We will have this tea bagged and blended for sale in our online shop soon.

Love and light!

I must suggest that before starting any new program to help control your asthma, you seek proper medical advise. This tea is also not a replacement for your rescue inhaler – Please continue using the asthma medication prescribed by your doctor.
The purpose of this tea is to supplement what your doctor has already given you – not to replace it.
