Wildfire Smoke tea
This tea helps to support the Lungs and Liver during exposure to wildfire smoke pollution.
Mint opens the airways and moves the Liver. Lemon supports the Liver and immune system. It promotes the generation of fluid to help flush out toxins. Honey moistens the Lungs to protect against dryness from smoke.
1-2 bunches of mint (washed and stems removed)
1 whole lemon (cut yellow rind from the lemon. Set aside)
raw honey (sourced from bees that pollinate in your local climate)
In a medium sized pot fill with 4 cups of water.
Add 1/2 the mint to the water.
Set the uncovered pot on the stove over high heat and bring to a boil.
Turn stove down to medium low and bring water down to a simmer.
Add lemon peels and remaining mint.
Cover and simmer for 3-5 minutes.
Remove from heat and add juice from 1/2 the lemon.
Add honey to taste.
Strain out mint leaves and lemon peels.
Pour into your favorite mug and enjoy!
Before drinking spend time inhaling the steam from your tea.
