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.
