Anise Seed Tea
Looking up the benefits and healing properties, it fit the bill.
It's not as strong as fennel, and not over-bearing in flavor. I crushed a teaspoon, poured boiling water over, and infused. I have a reusable tea infuser.
Drain and drink. I tell ya'. I'll be making sure I keep anise seed (organic, non-gmo) in my pantry for the reason it worked in two cups (had them within 3-4 hours. If you google it, there is a good list of how it can help heal certain issues.
I was desperate. I wanted a motorcycle ride, in which Hubby specifically (weather was high 70's before we crash to the 30's this weekend) took the day off for, and woke up feeling not so good.
I am also glad to say....
Our 17 year-old passed her driver's test and is now a bonafide driver. Now I have an extra driver. Yay!! She wants to get a job right away, but we really want her to wait until she has graduated. Holding a job and going to high school is very tough, as we found out with our oldest daughter. Oh...this means buying another vehicle. Eventually.
It's raining, windy, dark and dreary today. Sounds like the start of a poem, ha ha! Hubby has already told me the pollen content is too high for me to be outside and we should stay inside. What a jokester he is. He is trying to put off work we have already put off. Several times.
Once the coffee has kicked in, we'll have a lumber jack breakfast and hop to it. Hopefully.
