Herbal Teas for Baby
Herbal teas are one of my favorite ways to use herbs with little children for a few different reasons.
- The first reason is that herbal teas are very diluted which means there’s less risk of giving your little one too much of an herb.
- Another reason is that they can be made to taste good and/or they can be used in various ways to get kids to take them.
- And lastly, like many herbal preparations, teas can be made in different strengths (teas andinfusions) depending upon how much of it the child needs to take, how it will taste (which will vary based on the herb used), and how you plan on using it.”
