A tea to help soothe inflammation in the gut, ease digestion, nourish gut lining, and soothe sore throat
I created this tea for soothing gut support. It can be used for more immediate relief of heartburn or indigestion, or as a preventive tea to lubricate the GI tract, and improve gut terrain and elimination. Marshmallow root is also lovely for sore, hoarse throats and cough.
1.5-2 tsp herb per cup of water. Pour boiling water over the herbs and let steep for 5-10 minutes or longer if desired. Strain and enjoy hot or cold.
**FOR BEST RESULTS pour boiling water over herbs and then allow to cool to room temperature before consuming. This makes the tea more "mucilaginous", which creates a soothing coating for the throat and GI tract.
Drink 1-3 cups daily for gut health maintenance, or 1/2 cup every 30 minutes during acute GI symptoms or sore throat.
