Making calendula tea

This simple floral tea is great as a drink, it is particularly good for treating the first stages of UTIs.

You can also make it stronger and then decant it into a spray bottle and use it to calm sunburn, nettle stings and insect bites.

You need:

4 or 5 dried calendula flowers

Just boiled water

Teapot or jug and strainer


Pour just boiled water over the flower heads in a mug or jug and leave to steep - 10 minutes for a drink, 20-30 for the spray.

Strain the liquid and drink or decant into your spray bottle. You can also apply with a cotton swab. Keep in fridge and discard after 48 hours.
