Last week, we had a customer come in and ask us if there is any tea good for the hair. After some searching, we've found the answer…..it's Rosemary! 🙂Here are some more useful info on this herb from "The Way of Herbs" by Michael Tierra, L.Ac., O.M.D.: Rosemary
PART USED: Leaves ENERGY AND FLAVORS: Spicy, cool SYSTEMS AFFECTED: Liver, stomach, spleen-pancreas PROPERTIES: Antipyretic, antiinflammatory, stomachic, nervine, diaphoretic, astringent, anodyne, antiseptic DOSE: One teaspoon steeped in a cup of boiling water USED FOR: Headaches, indigestion, colds, inflammation of the joints, for scalp and hair NOTES: Rosemary is useful for dyspepsia or digestive upset, headaches, common cold and as a hair strengthener. A simple cup of rosemary tea is as effective as aspirin for headaches and other inflammatory symptoms including the relief of arthritic pains.
That’s so much better! Rosemary tea for headaches, inflammation and relief of arthritic pains. Thank you, we’ll try it.
