My son woke up sick again today. He’s been fighting a low-grade fever for 3 days. While no one else is sick, he’s been missing school, choir practice, music lessons, and other fun things, while he fights this bug. Send the sickies away with this Fresh Blackberry Leaf Tea!
Low-grade fevers are often accompanied by fatigue and low appetite. Your normal ‘eat us out of house and home’ eater may not finish his plate. My husband is starting to worry as this is his third day of missed school. I shrug my shoulders, “I am a registered nurse, after all.” Sometimes kids get bugs and they just have the run their course. Help them boost their immune system with this tea!

Fresh Blackberry Leaf Tea
This amazing tea is super easy to make. Pour boiling water over 3 fresh blackberry leaves. Cover with a saucer for 10 minutes. Be sure to put your feet up and close your eyes to enjoy! It’s a very mild tea, though can be sweetened with the sweetener of your choice.
There are no side effects to blackberry leaves, except in excessive use. This may cause liver damage. But honestly, so many herbs have a lot the same benefits, so just switch to a different one!
My Final Thoughts…
Did you know that the skin is the largest organ in your body? During the course of a lifetime, there is plenty of opportunity for wounds. As a home health nurse, I see a lot of wounds, including chronic wounds. One of our biggest goals is to get that wound closed as fast as possible. This incredible tea helps do just that!
Antibiotics are extremely overused. People want them for everything. And then some of them become resistant to them. Why not boost that immune system naturally? Remember to send those sickies away with Fresh Blackberry Leaf Tea! You guessed it! I dosed my kid with some!
