I am of the generation who believes children should be seen and heard, much unlike that of my mother. However, I try to maintain a balance of sanity in my busy household. I am a mother of three children, two of whom are rambunctious boys. So I am no stranger to using herbal methods to keep them cool. Many mothers have requested from me "something" to keep their children calm. I am sharing with you my "Kool Kids" tea that I have used with my boys and will keep using as long as they live here!
Kool Kids is a blend of Catnip, how I love this herb. I am doing an entire post dedicated to Catnip soon. Anyway, Catnip, Chamomile, Lemon Balm, Oatstraw and a bit of Licorice root to move the blend and provide some sweetness. If they want it sweeter, I sweeten it with either a pinch of Stevia or some honey.
This tea is also great for reliving stress in our young ones. Kids and stress? Yes, they live in this world and they feel as we do, stressed by all that they see and hear. Not to mention what the have to deal with in school! Check out my new article on Ezine on How to Recognize Stress in our Children-Can you tell when your children are Stressed?
Of course, you can buy Kool Kids at my Etsy store sacredvibes.etsy.com.
