What can “medicinal tea” REALLY do for you out in the wild? Well, for starters – they're FAR more essential than we originally gave them credit. They can help aid: Constipation, help with urinary tract infections, ease a sore throat, help with dysentery, can be used as treatment for rashes and open wounds, serve as an immune system booster… the list goes on and on.
But if you've ever been out in the woods and you need some medical relief and you're without the essential medications, it's worth looking around. Many of these teas are made from wild plants, herbs, fruit and berries and they can drastically improve a dire situation.
Safety first though – you want to be sure you know which plants, leaves, berries and/or fruit is edible before you get started. We have a list of toxic plants to avoid (they look like berries, they look safe to eat – but they're not). You can read about them in more detail here.
Head over to page 2 and we'll show you exactly what you need to make medicinal teas that will help treat your ailment and get you on the mend.
