Very Simple Rosemary Tea

Post  johndoe1225 on Sun Feb 07, 2016 5:58 am

Hey all

I've been making rosemary tea on and off for awhile now but am trying to remember to do it daily now.

It's extremely simple; I just boil some filtered water, dump a whole bunch of dried rosemary leaves in (you know, the ones that come in those containers), let it sit for either 5 minutes or for a few hours if I intend to drink it later.

I can say with 100% certainty that it has helped my digestion/bathroom habits, which were slightly compromised due to stress.  It's pretty amazing.

It doesn't taste good, but it's perfectly tolerable.  I put in about 1.5-2 cups of water, and...A whole lot of leaves, I don't even measure it, but the whole surface of the water in my pot is covered.

I assume this can also very easily double as a hair spray.

Any thoughts on its benefits?  

Very Happy

EDIT: Oh, also it's totally caffeine free. I think.

Wow, that sounds like some pretty serious stuff, I never even found those articles

I wonder, is there a limit to how much you should drink a day? Like I said, I make (brew?) it really strong, I've seen recommendations to put like one teaspoon of the leaves into a cup of boiling water, I actually just dump a ton of them into the pot until it makes a big pile, then mix it around with a spoon and let it sit.

EDIT: Also, I must add that the Rosemary tea hair spray smells freaking amazing. I brewed it pretty strong though, about as strong as the tea I drink. I use filtered water like the drinking version.

Also I was wondering, it says that Rosemary essential oil is for external use only, but like I mentioned, I brew my Rosemary tea very strong, is this still safe to drink?  Or should I brew it for a maximum of 10 minutes?  I usually let it sit for hours with a ton of leaves.

And when I brew really strong Rosemary tea, I spray it on my hair and scalp a lot, would this eventually get absorbed into my skin and act like it would if I had drunk it, potentially being dangerous as mentioned above?
