my colitis tea

25g tormentil root
15g sheperd's purse leaf
10g caraway seed
15g fennel seed
25g chamomile blossom
10g rose blossom

I watched the pharmacist mixing this tea, explaining the various medicinal uses of the different ingredients. When she added the rose blossoms, she smiled and said, for beauty.


  1. Your pharmacist has a wise and whimsical spirit, Sabine. How lucky for you that she added the rose blossoms!

    Traveling through the Rhine Valley is one of my fondest memories of living in Germany in the late 80s and early 90s. Thank you for piquing it for me. What a beautiful part of the world you live in!

  2. 10 grams of beauty! Very good!
