Chamomile with Lavender Blueberry Smoothie

ingredients for recipe on table

As we transition into the warmer months, a chilled dose of relaxing herbs like chamomile and lavender can be just what the herbalist ordered. That’s why we’ve dreamt up this cool and calming herbal smoothie to enjoy any time you’re feeling stressed, frazzled, or fried.

Our herbal smoothie features chamomile and lavender, both of which soothe digestion and calm nerves.* These aromatic medicines contain active essential oils that contain compounds like azulene and terpenes, which aid in their therapeutic benefits and contribute to their uplifting scent. In order to contain these essential oils, we suggest steeping your herbs with a saucer or Tea Buddy on top. This process helps you to achieve the perfect cup of herbal tea to make your smoothie.

In addition to featuring nervous system-supporting herbs, our recipe includes magnesium powder to support healthy mineral levels. Many people have low levels of magnesium, which makes it difficult for the body to carry out simple everyday functions.

Our Chamomile with Lavender Blueberry Smoothie is the perfect summer soother, naturally sweet and supercharged with plant power. Try our recipe and share your creations with us on Instagram, @TradMedicinals.
