The medicinal flowers and leaves of hawthorn (Crataegus spp.) offer so many gifts, especially for nourishing our hearts. In this episode, I share the benefits of hawthorn flowers and leaves, along with a few cautions to know about. I also share a proven way to make hawthorn tea so you can enjoy the best health benefits. 

After listening, you’ll know:

► Why hawthorn is such a powerful herb to support heart health

► Who should NOT work with hawthorn

► The most effective way to brew potent tea with hawthorn leaves and flowers

Show snippet: 

“While we can classify hawthorn with a handful of medicinal herbal actions, such as astringent, antispasmodic, cardiotonic, diuretic, hypotensive, but… a better understanding is simply that hawthorn nourishes and protects the heart.” (Timestamp: 03:28)
