Parsley Tea is one of those amazing secrets that our ancestors used for health and healing, but somehow got lost in the shuffle.  Or maybe we thought we knew better.   Oh, we still use parsley — as decoration.  And its no wonder we are all sick and struggling with our health. Oh, not everyone, but the vast majority.  Its so easy, and so useful, I recommend we go back to it.

Let’s Make Some Tea!

First, wash the parsley leaves you plan to brew.  My plant is young, consequently its leaves are close to the ground.  And you know, got some dirt on them when I watered.  Second, you want to mince about a teaspoon of fresh parsley leaves.  I just used my kitchen scissors.  Mincing it will also release the oils and make the tea stronger.

Boil your water and then toss your minced leaves into the water.

Some Precautions

Avoid in pregnancy.  If you are taking prescription medications, please check with your doctor first.
