Lavender Peppermint Elixir
Floral drinks are balancing to pitta and promote surrender and relaxation. Peppermint and fennel both have a cooling effect and support healthy digestion. Brown rice syrup is an ideal sweetener for pitta, but others can be used instead.
- 1 tsp of dried peppermint leaves
- 1 tsp of dried lavender
- 24-48 oz of boiling water
- Brown rice syrup, to taste (optional)
Place peppermint, lavender, and fennel seeds in a tea strainer or tea bag and set in a mug or jar.
Pour boiling water over top and let steep 5 minutes.
Remove tea bag or strainer and stir in sweetener, if using and refrigerate.
Serve chilled with a sprig of lavender.
