Organic Dandelion Root Tea
with Hibiscus and Cinnamon
I received some Organic Dandelion Root Tea from KissMe Organics to try out. I had never heard of drinking the things that we all call weeds. Come to find out, they are actually considered an herb and though not scientific evidence, there are many who swear by what it can do. I’ve heard that it can help with inflammation of the tonsils, preventing urinary tract infections (UTIs), help with loss of appetite, upset stomach, constipation, arthritis-like pain and many other conditions.
Since I’m on a prescription for Epilepsy and have issues with many different herbs that don’t work well with my medicine, I did some research before trying this and found that there isn’t any evidence of it interfering with that. You might be different, if you are one who deals with this issue, so be sure to contact your doctor to verify it is safe for you to use.
I didn’t really know what it would taste like and went in with an attitude of “just try it.” It really didn’t have much of a taste at first, I think in the future, I might add some honey or Agave to it, for a bit of sweetness. I figure anything that is helping my body and not making me have to hold my nose to drink it (like some other products on the market), it gets a thumbs up from me. I will continue to drink some and see if it actually does help with a detox and digestion. I’m in the process of trying to be healthier and lose weight, so I’m hoping this misunderstood little flower’s roots can help me get to my goal!
