I heard about this healing tea from my mom a while ago. Later I started looking to buy the plants to make it and now I have it and I am trying to drink it as often as I remember.
You probably wonder why is it healing. Each of the plants contained in this blend has their own benefits and together they can mainly help with skin inflammations and small wounds, water retention by helping the kidney to function better, urinary and vaginal infections, it can even help slowing down the ageing process.
As all the natural treatments, it has effect if it is used for a longer period. Usually 3-4 tea mugs per day are recommended. It can sound like a lot of effort but remember that is a natural source and plants are not pills. I prefer to have natural treatments instead of pills whenever I know that plants can help. Sometimes I use them in parallel with what the doctor recommends but I make sure that they don’t interfere.
And it is always good if something that you enjoy drinking, like tea, can also bring you health benefits and can heal you as well.
Healing Tea ingredients:
- English Marigold (Calendula)
- Field Horsetail
The taste of this tea can be a bit bitter because of the yarrow. The marigold and the horsetail actually have a mild taste, a tiny bit sweet.
When I was a kid and my mom was giving me some medicinal tea, I always knew that they don’t taste good. It was usually true but I knew that they would help me so I didn’t complain. So yes, some of the plant-based teas can have a less pleasant taste, but for sure not all of them.
Each of the plants can be used on their own as well. I will mention some of their most known benefits below. You can choose which one you want to try. You can exclude the yarrow and you will have a nice-tasting herbal tea and you can enjoy its benefits.
Main benefits of each ingredient:
- Wound healing
- Vitamin C
- Vaginal infections
You can find here even more great benefits for this bright yellow flower.

This tea can be used in many ways: you can drink it, you can bathe in it, or apply it directly on the skin, depending on what you need it for. Applying a cold compress on your face can improve your skin, help healing the acne and prevent wrinkles.
Note: Do not replace doctor’s advice with this tea! Consult your doctor before trying it.
Enjoy a lovely cup of healing tea whenever you need it!
