This month’s post at The Survival Mom talks about using herbal teas for extra nutrition. Herbs like violet, nettles, and oatstraw offer a natural boost of vitamins and minerals.  Here’s an excerpt, but be sure to head over to her website to get the full article!

Many preppers make sure to have a bottle of vitamins in their emergency supplies. Vitamin pills can be a quick way to make sure you are getting your recommended daily allowance of vitamins, minerals, and trace minerals during an evacuation or short term scenario, when you may not be eating as well as usual.

But what if you were in a situation where your vitamin supplements had run out? In a long-term, shelter-in-place scenario, herbs could be invaluable as an extra source of nutrients. After all, the raw ingredients can be grown in a garden or vacant lot.

Plus, herbal teas are also a great way to add a boost of extra nutrition if you are currently looking to be less reliant on bottled supplements. The herbs we will talk about here are a great source of minerals such as calcium, magnesium, iron, and potassium; and some are also high in vitamin C.

With a little creativity and effort, herbal teas can be nutritious and taste great, too!
