Soothing Linseed Tea

Linseeds (or flaxseeds) are rich in mucilage that coats, soothes and hydrates your digestive tract which in turn, supports the hydration of your entire body.  Drinking 2-3 mugs of linseed tea per day inbetween meals can be very helpful for digestive problems, stiff achey joints or as part of a gentle detox plan…

In a pan, add 2 tablespoons of golden linseeds to 1.5 litres of water and bring to the boil.  Switch off the heat and leave the mixture to stand for 12 hours or overnight.

Reheat and simmer for an hour with the lid on the pan.

Strain the seeds off and keep the remaining thick liquid in the fridge.

To make a tea with it, dilute a 50/50 mixture of linseed tea and fresh hot water.
