Simple Digestive Tea from One of Our Customers

We have a lot of conversations like this in the Bulk Herb Department.... A customer was telling me their favorite digestive tea recipe and someone nearby said, What was that you were saying?  I would like a digestive tea too!" And that is how we find some of our best recipes.  There were no quantities, she just said she made a tea of some fennel seeds, coriander seeds and cardamom.

Naturally fresh breath
Conventional mouthwashes often contain 25 percent alcohol and plenty of artificial sweeteners and preservatives. Look for herbal rinses with ingredients like tea tree oil, white oak bark, or horsetail. A few drops of chlorophyll or aloe vera in water are also effective rinses. Be sure to follow rinsing with flossing—if you don’t, one third of your tooth surface isn’t being cleaned!
