    A basic recipe for homemade vanilla extract, with a variation using sweetener, to make it taste more like store bought vanilla. Corn syrup or sugar helps extract and develop the flavor from the vanilla pods (corn syrup dissolves more easily). Using a variety of vanilla pods (Madagascar, Indonesia, Tahitian, Mexican) will produce a vanilla extract with a much more complex flavor and aroma. Try using Madagascar pods as a base, adding Tahitian and Mexican pods for additional flavor/fragrance notes. Vodka is used most often(you can also use rum or brandy) because it usually has the hightest alcohol content. You can double or triple this recipe.

    This is a curative formula traditionally used in Chinese households as a specific remedy for curing colds, flu, and other bronchial ailments of the "cold" type.(This phrase denotes those bronchial ailments accompanied by chills rather than fever. Since the tea is a warming yang formula, it should not be used for colds accompanied by fever.) It is also an effective therapy for "stomach colds" accompanied by diarrhea, for nausea and motion sickness, and for chronically cold hands and feet.

    Recipe #125670

    From Stop and Eat the Flowers by Rachel Sanfordlyn Shreckengast, this is a nice tea to relax with. The common name, Bee Balm, comes from the folk use of the flowers, pounded into a poultice, to ease the pain of bee stings. Bee balm is a member of the mint family, and is also called Bergamot. Bee balm's alternate name "Oswego Tea" was bestowed upon it by pioneer botanist John Bartram (1699-1777) who observed Oswego Indians using it for tea. As a tea, the odor & flavor is a mix of citrus & mint, well worth harvesting from one's garden for this purpose. He sent the seeds to England, where it is cultivated commercially. Bee balm grows in many areas of the United States, including New England, Mid Atlantic, Mid West, Southwest, and the West. Also England.

    Recipe #127541

    This description is from Back to Eden, a book written early this century. I do not mean to offend anybody, just quoting what the book says. "It has been said American people would do well if they would use sage instead of tea and coffee. The Chinese make fun of the American people because they buy the expensive tea for their drink and pay a big price for it, while the Chinese buy sage from America for a small price and drink that for their tea, which is a most wonderful remedy. The Chinese know that the sage tea will keep them well, while the tea that we buy from the Chinese makes us sick, is a cause of great nervousness and one of the causes of insanity. Sage tea is very soothing to the nerves, good for stomach troubles, gas, makes an excellent gargle for the throat, will expel worms, stop bleeding of wounds, good for liver and kidney troubles, a good wash for wounds, good hair tonic, fever reducer, and good for circulation. This tea should not be boiled, just steeped." Information came from Back To Eden by Jethro Kloss.
