Nutritive winter or spring rosehip tonic

Post By 1 Comment(s)

Here is a lovely end of winter! start of spring tonic! : ) is really easy to make and tastes great, it is a recipe courtesy of Dr Nicky Bailie through phytomed.

.500ml of nettle in fusion ( one large handful of nettle tea per 500ml around 2 cups of boiling water)

. 2-3 tbsp of  dried rosehips

. Blackcurrant concentrate 4-8 tbsp

Put into a 1 litre jar of jug with the required amount blackcurrant juice and add rosehips, fill with 2/3 boiling water then let sit for 2-4 hours, then strain and add the strained nettle tea infusion to it and keep in the fridge, 1-2 cups daily. It can be taken as a general tonic it makes a nice soothing drink to have on hand at this time of year with so many bugs about at the moment! You could change it into a water and honey mixture instead of the black currant or dilute the concentrate with half water if concerned with the amount of sugar in the concentrate, also you could use a base of  berry syrup which I will post on the next blog article! I will be popping up a post with some all important immune support herbs & tips to follow very soon! Keep warm & well. : )

warmly sharlene,

    Nice post Shars, is this just good as a change of season drink? Like does it help with spring bugs, coughs and sniffles or is is more specific? Thanks 🙂
