Herbs are a wonderful addition to a healthy diet and lifestyle. They provide additional nourishment and can be delicious as well.
In a day when we just can’t get enough nutrition from our food, adding herbs is another step you can take to support vibrant health. Don’t wait until you are sick to use herbs. The best medicine is prevention. Herbs can support longevity, and I believe they can and should be used every day to enhance wellness.
I make and drink herbal infusions daily and so do my kids. I’m always playing around blending different herbs and when I hit on a good blend, I love to share it with others. I’ve been making one in particular lately that we all really love around here and am here to share that recipe.
- 2 cups nettles
- 1 cup hibiscus flowers
- 1 cup Red Clover flowers
- 2 heaping Tbsp. of green leaf stevia
- Add all dry herbs to a gallon vessel, add hot water, stir, put on the lid and steep overnight, up to 24 hours.
- Strain and add more water to fill. Refrigerate and use up within 3-4 days.
I buy my herbs from Mountain Rose Herbs.

I buy my herbs in bulk every 3 months. When I make up a blend, I store it in an airtight jar to keep handy for use. These are the jars I use to store herbs. We also love our glass mason jar mugs with the handle. One cool thing about these mugs is you can put a lid on for travel or store what you don’t finish in the fridge.
If you love the idea of adding herbs and herbal infusions or other herbal recipes to your life, I highly recommend getting started with Rosemary Gladstar’s book, ‘Herbal Recipes for Vibrant Health‘.
