Medicinal Recipe: Borage Infused Tea for Stress

A standard infusion of borage leaves is a restorative tonic for the adrenal glands, which help the body to cope with stress.

In addition, borage flowers and leaves in wine have a reputation for bolstering courage because it causes a significant rise in blood adrenaline levels and relieves one of nervous tension and stress.

A standard infusion:
*1-3 tablespoons of fresh herb or 1-3 teaspoons of dried herb per cup of water
*Boil the water, pour over the herbs. Let it steep for up to 20 minutes. Strain, sweeten with stevia and/or honey, and sip slowly until finished. Drink 1-3 cups per day.
