Here is what we used: peppermint, lemon balm, lemon thyme, red raspberry leaves, echinacea leaves, and this morning I added borage flowers because they "gladden the heart" (according to a book I once read, and I just love that phrase).
Last night I left the leaves whole, this morning I crushed them up (pictured above). It is super tasty, and we feel great. I might make up a batch and put it in tea bags so the boys can have one whenever they need it.
Do you have a blend you love? Do you use it for medicinal purposes or just for a nice warm drink on a cold fall or winter day?
