Pine Needle Tea for Vitamin C and overall wellness.

I love herbal tea and tea in general.  

Mornings I have a lovely cup of strong organic coffee with honey and later in the day I will have a cup of tea.

If we are in area where it is a bit cold- I always have hot tea with lemon first thing and then a morning coffee.  Just helps my throat and

feels like a cleansing for my body.

Rose, fennel, star anise, green tea, Earl Gray, Jasmine, Burdock Root and Dandelion are some of my favorite mixes.  Mother Earth has beautiful ways to help us heal and be in balance. 

When we were young we would make whole made Pine Needle tea, as we have tons of Pine Trees here in the South.

My mother was quite the naturalist and would make her own teas, body products and healthy tinctures from our garden.

These days with all of the ways to stay extra healthy and keep your immune system Very strong and protected- I thought to add these photos I took this morning while making my tea.

  1. I just cut a few branches from a nearby tree.
  2. Soaked and cleaned the needles really well after cutting them off the branch,
  3. Cut the needles into little pieces to prepare to be boiled.
  4. Put a nice inch thick or more in a wide pot filled with about three inches of water. (I just liked this wider pot but any type is fine).
  5. Let the water come to a boil and then infuse for about 20 minutes but not too long, to keep all of the nourishment.
  6. Pour it through a sifter and let it shine in your tea pot.
  7. Add raw unheated honey to taste and some honey if you like.  Also, you can get creative and add with other teas.
Star Anise is a great source of Shikimic Acid, and in fact is one of the main ingredients of the anti-viral drug Tamiflu.  An Star Anise contains a higher content of Shikimic Acid than Pine Needles.  When consumed with Quercetin such as with the Black Tea in my Harmonic Chai Tea, it has an even greater effect on immunity & modulation of clotthing.  If you ate some green-leafys or berries for breakfast (all high in Quercetin) followed by my Harmonic Chai this would help to reduce the severity of viral infections too.
Fennel Seed is also a source of Shikimic Acid.  Fennel Seeds improve immune function, stimulates the thinning of your blood and decreases blood viscosity, which in turn decreases platelet aggregation.
Dandelion (Taraxacum officinale) has been shown to modulate inflammation and block the interaction of Spike Protein to adhere to the cell surface receptor.   Dandelion is a gentle detox agent, great for strengthening digestion & immunity, and energetically keeps you to stay grounded / rooted in your grander life purpose.
If you are pregnant – the dandelion tea may be better choice.  


I have studied Herbal Medicine for much of my life because I enjoy healing naturally.

Enjoy healing and bringing more Light into your cells, while helping to balance your body system from the shot spike proteins. 

An added bonus with the Pine Needles is it contains shikimic, an extract that helps protect body with certain

viruses, bacteria and parasites.  

I also came across this article when searching for information on Suramin.  Very interesting and helpful for wellness.

The Antidote to the Contagion
This antidote to the contagion, that has been known for almost 100 years, is called Suramin, an isolated compound originally derived from an extract of pine needle oil. 
Anyone can now take advantage of this solution by tapping its root origin, pine needle tea, an antidote that is freely available today in evergreen forests and in many people’s backyards. 

***  Do not use Japanese Yew Tree.  

Happy Healthy Week.

Much Love,
