Using Anise and Lavender Tea as a Remedy for Heartburn
Here is a tea that you can make to help relieve the symptoms of heartburn, since it reduces the amount of acid you have in your stomach. Note that some variants of this remedy suggest adding peppermint, but this is NOT recommended since peppermint is known to relax the LES (described earlier), which is exactly what you don’t want to do.
•Mix together equal amounts of aniseed and lavender.
•Boil 2 1/2 cups of distilled water.
•Pour the boiling water over a teaspoon of the herbal mixture.
•Let this tea sit for 3 to 5 minutes.
•Strain the tea and add a little bit of honey as a natural sweetener.
•Drink up to 8 oz of this tea in the morning and 8 oz in the evening to get relief from acid reflux or heartburn.
