Four herbal infusions to support the body: women support, immune boosting, stress relieving and beauty boosting. They are mineral-rich, full with vitamins that support our health.



The Herbal Beauty Infusion

2 part nettle leaf
2 part raspberry leaf
1 part goji berries (optional)

The Herbal Immune Boosting Infusion

2 part echinacea purpurea
a few slices fresh ginger
a few drops lemon juice

The Herbal Stress Relief Infusion

2 part oat straw
2 part nettle leaf

Or 1 part hibiscus
with fresh lemon juice to taste

The Herbal Women Support Infusion

2 part raspberry leaf
2 part nettle leaf


For example for The Herbal Beauty Infusion, for about  10-ounce cup (300 ml), add 4 tablespoons of nettle leaf, 4 tablespoons of raspberry leaf, and 2 tablespoons of goji berries.

Simply adjust these measurements for a stronger brew or a larger/smaller serving. For a stronger brew I use the same measurements but then for 8 ounces. Bring water to a boil and pour over the herbs in the jar.

 I always use a French coffee press for this, since this makes the process extremely easy and effective.

Cover the jar with a lid and let steep for a few hours or overnight. Slowly push the lid of the French press down to strain the herbs and serve.

You can safely enjoy 2-3 cups a day.

Drink before the day is over and make a new one for the next morning.

Once you finished the jar you will be left with a French press with herbs on the bottom of the jar. I simply add more boiling water and enjoy a diluted herbal infusion, more like a tea. As such, nothing is wasted and you are sure to get all the nourishment from the herbs.



The infusion will (of course) be cold once it has been steeping for several hours. I don’t mind drinking room temperature tea, but if you prefer a warm drink add a little splash of boiling water to your cup before serving or reheat it on the stove so that your tea is hot.

If you have a celiac or severe gluten intolerance, please take caution with oat straw as there is the possibility of gluten contamination.

If you have a medical condition or if you are pregnant, please check with your physician if you can use any of these herbs.
