Known as a “magical grass.” It has a wide range of health-promoting benefits. Considered to be invigorating but not a stimulant, calming, anti-aging, supportive of the body’s natural immune system, helps support a healthy respiratory system, and a digestive aid.
Flavor: Pleasantly sweet with a bit of bite and cozy vegetal notes remindful of fresh spring greenery
Directions: Add the amount of botanicals per a recipe, as desired, or as directed by a health practitioner. The proper way of extracting botanicals depends on parts used. Flowers, fruits and leaves can usually be steeped or decocted (boiling over fire) while stems, barks and roots typically require decocting.
In a Desktop Botanical Garden™ Glass Tea & Elixir Maker, add 1 part botanical(s) and 5-8 parts water, steep or decoct for 5-20 minutes. You can boil water directly in the Elixir Maker. Repeat this process for 2nd or 3rd extraction until all active constituents have been extracted.
Ingredients: Dried Gynostemma Leaves
