Beauty Brew


Ayurveda promotes Beauty from the Inside. This tisane, or herbal tea, from Tata Harper Skincare, is Pitta-reducing, hormone-balancing, and great for your skin.

Skin-Sational Tisane

2 tbs lemon balm
1 tbs lavender flowers
1 tbs peppermint
1 tbs chamomile flowers
1 tbs rose petals
1 tbs nettle
1 tbs alfalfa
1 tbs rose hips
2 tsp dandelion leaves
2 tsp raspberry leaves
1/2 tsp ginger root

Begin by combining all herbs in a medium-size bowl and stir to blend. You can store the tea in a tightly sealed tin, jar, plastic tub or bag away from light in a cool, dry place. It is best if used within 6 months.

To make a cup of this fabulous tea bring one cup of water to a boil in a small saucepan. Remove from heat and add 1 teaspoon of tea. Cover and allow to steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain before drinking. Add honey, cream, or lemon if desired.

  1. Sounds wonderful! I’ve been experimenting with lots of different teas lately. Lemon Balm is a great one! To feel beautiful, I do a coconut oil massage and then shower and straighten my hair so that it’s flowey! Then I put on mascara and batt my eyelashes! lol I’m such a girly girl! Sending so much love to you!

    1. Yes, Jenna, I share your appreciation for lemon balm, and love your playful approach to beauty! Ha. Today I will bat my eyes in honor of you: You, already a great beauty in all ways. Thank you for being in our lives.
