DIY Herbal Broth for Balance
Drinking herbal broth on a regular basis is one of the simplest ways to get concentrated herbal healing into your diet every day. Whether you put some in a bottle and drink it at work or you use it as a base for your favorite dishes, you’re benefiting from the medicinal qualities of up to 10 herbs and veggies that you may be missing from your regular old diet.
Think of a broth as a
really strong tea. You can boost digestion, overall feelings of balance, strengthen your immune system and calm your mind in just a few sips.
Here is a soul-nourishing recipe from the Sacred Science.
8-12 Cups of Water
1 Large Onion, Chopped in Half
2 Carrots, Chopped
1 Stalk of Celery Chopped
3 Large strips of any seaweed per 1 Cupe (Kombu, Alaria, or Digitata Kelp Seaweed are some solid options)
1-2 Cups Mushrooms- dried or fresh is fine (Shiitake, Porcini, Reishi, Lions Mane are a few good starters)
1/4 Cup Calendula Flowers
1 Cup Loose Nettle Leaf
3 Tablespoons Fresh Ginger, chopped
4 Cloves Garlic, crushed
1-2 Tablespoons Fresh Turmeric Root or add 1 Tablespoon Powdered
Optional but recommended: 1 Tablespoon each Burdock Root, Dandelion Root & Astragalus
Meat-eater option: add bones to the broth with 1/8 cup of apple cider vinegar and let it cook in a slow cooker for at least 12 hours.
This recipe can be made in a slow cooker or on your stovetop. If using a slow cooker, set it on low for 8 hours or overnight-this is usually how I make my broths!
Combine all ingredients in a large pot and simmer on very low heat/flame for 4-8 hours.
Strain and press as much goodness as possible through a mesh sieve.
Salt to taste
add a squeeze of lemon
Add a tablespoon of Miso if desired (don’t simmer or boil miso as it is alive! Mix it into warm broth.)
PRO-TIP: If using a combination of mushrooms, know that certain mushrooms have a more bitter flavor, like reishi, so add a smaller amount if you are sensitive to bitterness.
