“A simple herbal tea that's good for upset stomachs.Fennel has been used for centuries all over the world to sooth and relax the digestive system and freshen breath after a heavy meal.Fennel tea is gentle enough to give to colicky children,just omit the honey if they are very young and give a small spoonfull at the time.Fennel is also supposed to help milk production in nursing mothers and to help with other female problems,as it does have a slight hormonal affect on the female system.It's also just a nice hot drink to relax with before bed.”
