Internet Recovery Tea Recipe – Ayurveda
From Amodea Morningstar, this is one of my “go-to” teas! And especially now that so much of the world has gone digital during this pandemic and work from home phase, (even the kiddos), I recommend having a batch of this in the fridge for the whole family.
It’s pretty much 24/7 in the digital space these days, to the detriment of our nervous system and basic sanity. Consider turning the web of and having a cup of this tea to reset your inner peace and internal balance.
Back when I was in nursing school and studying, working, and burning the candle at both ends, my doctor put me on Valium, to deal with the Banyan Botanicals to my nervous system. It worked in the short term, but I knew it wasn’t a good long term solution that would promote balance and healing.
Now, I just make this tea and my entire body, mind and spirit feels like I’ve been dipped in valium, but without all the side effects. And the difference is this tea actually supports your body, corrects the imbalances, and nourishes you deep within.
If you can get yourself out in nature as you drink it, all the better. Enjoy!

This is an infusion. If you like your tea stronger, let it sit until it is the flavor you enjoy. Watch out though! It can get bitter the longer it rests.
Drink up to 2 cups per day, as needed.
Sweeten with honey if you like.
If you know your Ayurvedic constitution: calms Vata, Pitta, and Kapha beautifully.
reset your inner peace is a good source for shankhapushpi and bacopa. While neither of these has any contraindications, caution would be advised with anti-epileptic, anti-depressant, or sedative medications, as these are their traditional uses (Pole, 150, 269).
