Polari-TeaHave I mentioned so far that besides being an herbalist, I am also a Board Certified Polarity Therapy Practitioner? Well, that’s another Holistic Health Practice that came into my life a few years back, and I have since then combined that and Herbs in a very successful and satisfying way.


Polarity Therapy is an Energetic Practice, and we have already discussed the fact that Herbs are Energetic beings, their healing energy being transmitted to us via herbal teas, tinctures, herbal essences, and many other ways.  So one can see how connected Herbs and Polarity are at the very core of their nature.


Polarity Therapy is a combination of Energetic Touch, Energetic Theory, & other Energetic practices such as specific Energetic exercises, Energetic Foods and more –created and developed by Dr. Randolph Stone many years ago.

One of the very first things I learned when I began studying and practicing Polarity was making a special tea which combined herbs in such a way as to energize our system.

The Herbs in this tea are some of my very favorites, and were already before I read Dr. Stone’s recipe:


Briefly, their benefits are:


Licorice Root: 

Aside from bringing sweetness to my tea, it also produces different Steroids which help lungs and assist with Adrenals. Licorice also helps with colds/bronchitis, and decreases skeletal spasms, among many other functions.


Fennel:  Is a sweet herb that helps suppress appetite, promotes function of internal organs, relieves stomach acidity and abdominal cramps.



Helps with asthma and lung disorders, as well as acts as as a bulk laxative, reduces fever, lowers Cholesterol, and is good for the eyes, lubricates intestines, helps with asthma and sinus issues.



Helps with colon issues, inflammation, tumors, but also strengthens nails, bones, teeth, and skin.



Helps with fever, nausea, diarrhea. However, too much of Pepperming tea can irritate the GI tract and mucous membranes.


The taste of the above herbs combined is truly delicious, and I make sure I take it at least 3-4 times a week.

I would definitely take it every day, but I have lots of other tea combinations I love, so I try taking a different tea in the morning, another before going to bed in the evening, and as much as I can I also drink Dr. Stone’s tea.

Actually, it’s a lot of fun to try different herbal mixes throughout the day, provided I have already pre-mixed them and ready to go. I usually make my herbal teas mixtures once a month, 3 or 4 of them at a time, so they are ready to go whenever I want a particular combination!

Making teas is LOTS of fun, and drinking different teas throughout the day or week, etc. brings the benefits of many herbs, rather than drinking one particular tea (e.g. Peppermint) day in and day out.


So try a few different herbal teas, see what you like best–and/or least, make different mixes—and enjoy your herbal experiences!!!

Also, do let me know which tea mixtures you love doing best, what you learned from this blog, what you think of Dr. Stone’s Tea, etc. I would love to hear from you all!


In good Herbal Health!
