How to Make Burdock Root Tea

burdock root tea

I’ve recently gotten into a lot of different 100% natural herbal teas. Reason being, is because they have several awesome benefits to your health. I used to have lots of trouble falling asleep. Now since I drink herbal tea at night before bed, I’ve been able to fall asleep much easier because herbal tea calms my mind body and spirit. Natural herbal teas also help to get your mind focused on the task at hand, such as, while you’re doing your homework or anything else you need to focus on.

Dr. Sebi (herbalist) has spoken of Burdock Root tea in his lectures. It’s natural and also has healing power.

It's a bit hard to read but Dr. Sebi placed Burdock in the category of Alkaline and Natural.
