[AlternativeAnswers] Summer Solstice Week: Seasonal Simmers


Good Morning!

Summer Solstice Week: Seasonal Simmers

Simmers are a special mixture of herbs and spices, which are combined
into a blend or potion, created to bring the power of aromatherapy
and intention into your life. They are also designed to capture the
attention of those around you.

Based on folk remedies, grandma's recipes and the ingredients
provided by nature, these simmers are recipes used to make your
kitchen smell delightful. They can be used along with a "special
intention" and later, can even be enjoyed as tea!

Summer, honoring the Solstice, invoking Summer love, as a cooling
iced tea.

-1 lemon, sliced

-sprig of mint
-1 tsp. vanilla
-4-6 tsp. of two of the following herbs: Jasmine flower, Chamomile
flower, Chrysanthemum flower, Rose petals.

-use them at the start of each season to give honor to yourself and
your intentions for that season.
-as it cools, share, drink, these simmers as a tea.

temperature and color.
