chamomile & lavender tea for some winter weekend relax

I’ve totally fallen in love with this simple infusion combining two ancient medicinal herbs. It’s the perfect relaxing beverage for the winter season. In addition to their soothing and relaxing effects, Chamomile can help alleviate fever and allergies and boost digestion, whereas Lavender stimulates circulation, acts as a tonic for the nervous system and has antibacterial and antiseptic qualities. And did I mention that this infusion tastes just heavenly? Just mix the two herbs in 50-50 ratio, infuse for 5min and enjoy. Please note that while some of the medical properties of these plants have been established and commonly accepted, the writer of this blog is not a medical professional; just someone who loves nutrition and learning about natural healing 🙂

a little garden

I’ve been dreaming of a little garden of my own for a long time, but this summer went so fast and I was occupied by moving house and job and travelling that I didn’t get a chance to sow anything. So today I decided to do something about it, even if only on a very small scale. I took an old wooden box with a gap in the bottom, some old cloth and a layer of pebbles then some soil As the summer is already turning to autumn, I got some bio herbs from the supermarket, so easy! Basil and Thyme went in first Followed by Mint, Chives and Rosemary Next year, I’ll be on time, with tomatoes and all and be a real urban gardener.
