Predominantly used for menopausal symptoms, I would imagine this would help boost your mood for any reason!

Bring one tablespoon of dried rosemary to a boil in two cups of water, and let it simmer for five minutes. Turn off the heat, and let it steep for 10 minutes. Then strain out the herb and drink the tea— one cup between breakfast and lunch...another cup between lunch and dinner. Do this every day whenever you feel the need for an emotional boost

Rosemary, an herb that was among the Mayans' most important spiritual healing plants, acts as an antidepressant for many menopausal women. It is rich in vitamins A and C as well as the minerals phosphorus, iron, magnesium and zinc. It is a wonderful tonic for the nervous system.

Thanks :)
Well I have been adding some links to the group in the appropriate pages to start with...
One of my current favorite tea blends I conjured up just a few days ago is chocolate chai mate - now, I don't really measure stuff too well...I'm a notorious, a bit of this and such - but this one I can give you the measurements on for two of the ingredients:

1/2 tsp Mate
1/2 tsp Cocao Nibs
some cloves, cardamom, cinnamon chips (and black pepper corns, or star anise or ginger if you like)
I prefer to sweeten this with my Vanilla sugar which is just raw sugar that I keep in a jar with cut up Vanilla beans to flavor it.

1 teaspoon dried sage
4 whole cloves

Place in a cup of just boiled water and steep for 5 minutes or more. Drink at least one cup daily.

Centuries of herbalists have used sage to help memory loss, but modern-day scientists have discovered that sage inhibits the enzyme that breaks down the chemical messenger acetylcholine, which plays a role in maintaining focus and recall. Clove oil has also been shown to help with learning deficits

And by the way—put your keys on the same hook near your door or in your kitchen every day when you get home. Simplify the small things, and that leaves more room in your brain for the big things.

3 parts raspberry leaf
1 part chaste tree berries (vitex)
2 parts nettle leaf
1 part astragalus root
1 part oatstraw
1 part blessed thistle
2 parts peppermint

Note: Naturally the results will be different for everyone. This is by no means a cure-all. I’m just happy to share with you my experience with these plants. Please use conventional wisdom and consult with your medical professional prior to taking this or any other herbal supplement. And as we know all to well the FDA doesn’t like any type of claim…this information is purely educational in its purpose.

Not suitable for pregnant or nursing mothers.

Another Note: Unless you are allergic to oats. Gluten sensitivity will not be activated by use of oatstraw. And allow me to further clarify on the use of vitex (chaste tree berry). Historically (and this information sourced from Mountain Rose Herbs) — as in two thousand years ago, or at least since the time of the Greek physician Dioscorides, vitex was recommended and given primarily to men in battle and to monks to suppress sexual desire. Men should NOT take chaste berries in any form.

On the other hand, The German Commission E has approved the use of chaste berries to support a healthy and regular menstrual cycle. Studies have shown efficacy in reducing the unpleasant symptoms of the menstrual cycle. When combined with other herbal ingredients (such as those in this tea blend), vitex has been shown to support menopausal health.

Measure the parts of each of the herbs listed and mix in a large bowl until well combined.

Grab your tea accessories, tea infusers, and/or tea pots…and brew a cup! (Note: I get all of my loose leaf tea-making supplies online from Mountain Rose Herbs.)

This herbal tea blend will keep stored in a cool, dark place for approximately 6 months. (Note: I like to store all of my teas in glass jars with tight-fitting lids.)

To prepare: Add 1 teaspoon of loose leaf tea per cup of hot water and steep for 3-5 minutes. You may find that it benefits from the addition of a bit of milk (your choice) and/or raw honey to smooth out the flavor.

To use: I like to take 1 cup first thing in the morning and one around noon. I recommend daily consumption. You could also use this herbal blend to make a tincture for a stronger — more convenient – medicine.

2 parts dandelion root
1 part ginger
1 part peppermint
1 part rosemary
1 part rose hips

Mix together the dry herbs and store in a glass container away from light and heat. Make the tea by using one to two teaspoons of the dry herb, steeped for 10 minutes in very hot (not boiling) water. Strain, sweeten with honey to taste, and drink.

A good tasting tea eleven without sweetener. I found that I like to use a little more and let it steep a bit longer. It isn't very strong tasting.

Got these ingredients off a box of tea I had purchased and my kid says it really helps. Exact amounts were not provided of course but ingredients are listed in decreasing order...the first ingredient has the largest quantity, the last has the least quantity. That's the best I can describe! Sounds tasty too!

stinging nettle
natural menthol flavor
tilia flowers.

Not really a "blend" but sounded good anyway!

Weight Loss Tea

Steep 1teaspoon of loose fennel seeds in one cup of just boiled water for about 10 minutes. Strain and drink about a half hour before meals and one cup at bedtime. It has a refreshing licorice taste.

What’s going to happen? Well, the Greek name for fennel is marathron, from mariano, which means “to grow thin.” Fennel is known to metabolize and throw off fatty substances through the urine. It’s also rich in vitamin A (which means it’s wonderful for the eyes) and helps aid digestion. Note: This tea is not a “magic bullet” that melts the fat away. Please use in conjunction with a sensible eating and exercise plan to slim down for better health. And please check with your doctor before using any herbs or supplements for weight loss.

1 cup dried lavender flowers
2 cups roughly cut dried peppermint
1 cup dried summer savory
1 cup dried sweet marjoram
1 cup dried whole calendula flowers

Blend from The Winter's Tal, act 4 I believe. How fun is that!

I know peppermint can help with tummy issues like heartburn, but what other healing properties are in there? Anybody?

Note that the black pepper added in this blend is black PEPPERCORNS. an entire tablespoon of pepper or a sounds like a lot but what do I know! Sounds yummy!
