Fenugreek Seeds Tea
Fenugreek is used to soften and expel mucous. It has antiseptic properties and will kill infections in the lungs. Used with lemon and honey, it will help reduce a fever as well as soothe and nourish the body during illness. The Chinese use it to treat sweating and depression in menopause. It has been used to relax the uterus, and for this reason should not be taken by pregnant women.
Add loose tea (1 to 2 teaspoons per cup, 250ml) to a teapot, or infuser basket. Pour very hot water (not boiling) over the tea and let it infuse for up to 10 to 15 minutes. Strain leaves from the teapot before pouring. Add honey or a slice of lemon to taste. Enjoy!
Seek professional health advice if lactating, suffering from a medical condition or taking medication before supplementing. Avoid use during pregnancy.
