Chamomile and Lavender Tea
The combination of these two delicate and calming herbs will settle your nervous system and relax your digestive system, especially if you’re feeling stressed or tense.

2 teaspoons chamomile buds
500 ml (17 fl oz/2 cups) boiling filtered water
1 tablespoon lemon juice
Put the lavender and chamomile in a teapot. Pour over the water, then add the lemon juice. Infuse for 10 minutes, then pour into mugs or glasses (or strain it if you prefer) and serve.

This sounds appealing even if you’re not out to ‘officially’ heal your gut, Carol!
I am now making this most days Margot – it is good hot or cold…
Well, I have half of this recipe already Carol as I have a bag full of lavender buds from when I made a batch of lavender scones last summer (which were delightful by the way with a big dollop of cream on top – though not very gut healing!) I do like flavoured teas. Real ones. As I have a China Rose Petal tea from Betty’s Tea Rooms, in the UK at home. Beautiful.
This sounds very calming. I do like chamomile tea anyway. Thank you.
And I have lavender growing in the garden – so easy for me too Rebecca. China Rose Petal sounds lovely.
