Herbal Iced Tea

When the weathers warmer, it’s a perfect time to enjoy your herbal tea chilled!
How to make herbal iced tea:
  • Make a strong tea by using more herbs than you normally would for brewing a cup—about 1 tablespoon per cup of water—since you’ll later be diluting the brewed tea with ice.
  • Steep a little longer than you normally would for a cup or pot of hot tea, about 15 to 20 minutes.
  • Pour the strong brew over a lot of ice and serve. Or combine it with an equal amount of cold, filtered water and refrigerate until chilled.

Detox body oil

Are you ready to emerge from under the woolly jumpers of winter? You can make your own herbal detox body oil by adding a few drops of cleansing essential oils to a base oil to help get skin in great shape. Dry body-brushing is a great way to get skin looking fresher. Before your shower use long, gentle strokes working from your feet, up your legs and trunk and along your arms – always brushing towards the heart. This simple step will help slough off dead skin cells and encourage circulation, leaving skin smoother

Tea in a capsule

Tea in a capsule is a great range by an experienced local naturopath. Putting together formulations using combinations of herbs and plant extracts in a dried, powder form; then filled into capsules. The same benefits of a liquid extract without the awful taste. The capsule quickly dissolves once in the stomach, allowing the herbs / plant extracts to start to work.

There are no animal products used, or extenders, like magnesium stearate or cheap vitamins or any mineral ingredient, which are often used in other commercial health supplement pills and capsules. Each “tea in a capsule“capsule only contains the pure and natural parts of plants.

To maintain the absolute highest standards of product purity and quality, herbs and plant extracts, empty gelatin capsules and bottles are sourced from only the best suppliers and capsules are filled for each separate blend in the clinic, in Melbourne Australia.

The range includes formulas to address such issues as arthritis,anxiety, psoriasis, high blood pressure and many more.  Come into Mountain Health, see the range and get some advice on a formula that would suit your needs.
