Tummy got you howlin’? This DIY natural digestion tea is completely safe for everyone. You’ll be glad to have it in your emergency kit if you have a tummy ache.
Maybe it’s because I’m not a mother but I have never heard of Gripe Water until I saw this post. I do know what colic is and it’s not fun for anyone involved. This Gripe Water recipe from JoyBilee Farm is simple to make with only four ingredients and even better. This DIY natural digestion tea is completely safe for everyone.
If your thinking ‘I don’t have an infant’, it’s not just for cry babies. “This tea also calms gas, hiccups, and bloating in older children and adults. It is calming and relaxing to the digestive system. Since gripe water is food there is no unsafe dose. It can be offered as often as needed. For adults and older children use 1 cup of water per tea bag. The relaxing experience of drinking tea is part of the therapeutic value of this natural remedy.”
You can store this tea mixture in a variety of ways from your own press and seal bag to a canning jar with the lid tightly closed. The tea remains potent as long as you can still smell it. Personally, having an unsettled stomach on almost a daily basis, I see this as an essential item to include in my emergency kit. I’d hate to be caught with my drawers down in an emergency when I could have drunk this simple tea.
