Borage Herbal Tea for Stress
A standard infusion aka herbal tea of borage leaves is a restorative tonic for the adrenal glands, which helps the body to cope with stress.
In addition, borage flowers and leaves in wine have a reputation for bolstering courage because it causes a significant rise in blood adrenaline levels and relieves one of nervous tension and stress.
Here’s how to take your borage for stress as an herbal tea:
1) Take 1-3 tablespoons of fresh borage leaves (some flowers are okay, too) or 1-3 teaspoons of dried herb per cup of water (here’s my favorite herb store for dried borage!)
2) Boil the water, pour over the herbs.
3) Let it steep for up to 20 minutes. Strain, sweeten with stevia and/or honey, and sip slowly until finished. Drink 1-3 cups per day. Enjoy!
