I recently bought all the ingredients to damiana tea formula after finding it on Earth Clinic over a year ago!! I was looking for something to mellow me out (I can't seem to relax these days). I work about 60 hours a week so that has something to do with it. This tea is AMAZING! It makes me so relaxed and sleep very well. I drink about 1/2 cup at night a few hours before going to sleep. The first night I drank a full cup very quickly (it tastes bitter) and that was too strong and hit me like a train after 40 minutes. I have gotten used to the taste and sip it now. I recommend this for people like myself, who just can't seem to relax!

I followed JL from Pasadena, California's recipe exactly:

2 handfuls of damiana, 1 handful chrysanthemum flowers, 1 teaspoon of chuchuhuasi and 1 teaspoon of hercampuri.

I steeped added the damiana to cool water and let it boil for a few minutes before turning it off. Then while it cooled I added the rest of the ingredients. I then strained it after abou15 minutes and put the remainder liquid in a glass jar that I keep in the fridge.
