 "Bites from the Appel"

Mum's Are More Than Just Decoration!

It’s mum’s season in gardens! Most people don’t realize that Chrysanthemum flowers can be used medicinally. Most commonly it is used as a tea, with the white and yellow varieties used most. Chrysanthemum can help alleviate high blood pressure, headaches, insomnia, dizziness and help with symptoms of a cold. In traditional Chinese medicine it is considered to be slightly cooling and has a combination of pungent, bitter and sweet properites. It will clear heat, help to detoxify, disperses wind, pacifies the liver and enhances vision.

Steep 6-8 dried flowers per cup for 2-3 minutes (and the flowers can be re-steeped 3 or 4 more times)

Yours In Health,
