Herbal Tea Recipe

When using herbs for calcium, be sure to use dried. Dried herbs have roughly seven times the amount of calcium as fresh. This is because the fresh herbs contain a great deal of water. You can make up a large batch of this recipe and store it in a jar with a tight fitting lid.

  • 2 parts dried parsley
  • 1 part oat straw
  • 1 part dried dandelion leaf
  • 1 part dried peppermint

To Make the Tea

Boil two heaping Tablespoons of herb per two cups of water for 40 minutes, then strain. You can make two days worth at a time by doubling this amount and storing the second day’s tea in the refrigerator. You can drink it cold or reheat it on the stovetop.

Alternatively, place four heaping Tablespoons in a quart-sized jar and fill to the top with hot water. Cover the jar tightly and let infuse for at least 4 hours up to 8 hours (overnight). Strain, and store half in the refrigerator for the following day.

    Thank you for this recipe, Elizabeth. Indeed a good reminder to get enough calcium. Could I make this tea with fresh ingredients?

    • Elizabeth Heck

      Hi Tessa,
      You can use fresh herbs but since they contain so much water, you will not get as much calcium from them.
