The base of this blend is a classic combo of catnip, lemon balm and chamomile. In the summer I love to wander through the garden, pinching off a bit of each and making the tea from fresh herbs. Sadly, I can't do that year round, so I dry a lot and keep this blend on hand as the base of everything I use.
In this case, I've added linden and rose, making this an effective but super gentle blend for all ages. This is our every day tea blend for us and our children, both day and evening. A wonderful bed-time tea.
