Have you ever wished you had a very safe and gentle sedative for babies and infants?
Or wanted something to soothe and remove eye inflammation and infections?
If you have any herbal tea on your shelf, you may already have exactly what you need, and not even know it! Whether you brew tea herbs to drink, to use as a skin or eyewash, or throw the loose herbs into a sock to steep in your bathwater, tea herbs can help you turn the corner away from illness, exhaustion, and discomfort.
Having autism can make pharmaceutical drug use inadvisable. Between invariably-impaired detoxification (and all drugs are toxins), and an often out-of-balance immune system, drugs often do things they shouldn’t, and don’t do what they’re supposed to, in an autistic body.
Herbal teas, while they taste marvellous, are also medicinal. With a higher nutrient density than most of our foods, many of these herbal tea plants grow in places people live, around the world.
Some tea herbs can be easily wild-harvested, even in the midst of cities. However, most of them are very inexpensive to purchase, especially when you can buy them in bulk from a supplier.

Plants are what drugs are primarily developed from. Herbs used too often or at the wrong times can push the body too hard, taking it further off balance. So it’s important to understand herbs much better if you’re going to drink the same tea often, daily, or several times a day.
However, on a first aid, occasional basis, herbal teas are very helpful, handy, simple to use, and low-risk.
