It's fun and easy to make your own herbal mixtures. Many of the ingredients can be found in the kitchen, and essential oils are often found at your local natural food or supply store. If you can't find the ingredients locally there are numerous Internet stores that supply herbal oils and loose herbs.
How to make tea
Using loose herbs to make tea is easier than it sounds. You usually use about 1 to 2 teaspoons of herbs per cup of water. Take the loose herbs and add them to a cup of hot water. Let steep for 10 minutes, and then remove the herbs. There are also special tea balls that can be used. Just put the herbs into the tea ball and immerse in hot water.
