• DIY Flower Garden Tea

    November 7, 2018 • DIY RECIPES, EAT, LIFE

    Christmas is just around the corner, and when it comes to conscious gift giving what’s better than making a gift yourself! So our latest DIY recipe is a beautiful batch of beneficial herbal tea. This recipe makes quite a bit (4 1/2 cups) so you can fill up multiple pretty jars and gift to family, friends, work colleagues or teachers.

    Our flower garden tea combines beautiful rose petals, lavender, chamomile and calendula, and works to relax, calm, boost immunity and improve digestion.  Drink it before sleeping or when you are looking to take some time and settle you mind.

    DIY Flower Garden Tea | Biome Eco Stores

    Make your own DIY flower garden tea


    To serve:

    • 1 thin slice of lemon, halved
    • Honey to taste (optional)

    You will also need sealed glass jars of your choice to store. The one pictured is from Vinnies. We have a range here >


    1. Gently combine flowers in a large glass bowl.
    2. Grab your jars and pop equal amounts in each. Seal and label.

    How to Use

    Steep 1 teaspoon of tea per person in a teapot or tea infuser for 3-5 minutes before removing. Sweeten with honey and add a slice of lemon for extra zing.

    Tip: Get creative and combine flowers, herbs and spices of your choice. Slices of dried apple, ginger root, lemon or orange peel are a nice addition in this blend.

    Note: Keep tea in an airtight jar out of direct sunlight (in the pantry is ideal) to reserve its colour, flavour and therapeutic benefits.

    This DIY tea blend was inspired and adapted from Infuse: Herbal Teas to Cleanse, Nourish and Heal by Paula Grainger & Karen Sullivan. You can find this book here >


    Some teas should be avoided during pregnancy, breast feeding and when taking certain medication. Please seek medical advice before drinking tea if unsure.

    As with all our DIY recipes, you can experiment to suit your preferences. Many factors can change the end result, including temperature, humidity, light, ingredient quality. Some DIYs can be amended by remelting or adding ingredients, but some cannot. Please read the whole recipe before beginning and remember to have fun!

    Biome cannot issue a refund if the DIY skin care product, DIY hair care product or DIY body care product you make using our raw DIY ingredients do not perform as you’d hoped. We will, however, offer a refund if the raw DIY ingredient packaging is broken or leaking, or the ingredient itself appears to be ‘off’.

    Before using any raw DIY ingredient for the first time, please first research that ingredient’s potential benefits as well as safety precautions and possible side effects. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.

    If you have severe acne, very sensitive skin, or another skin concern or health condition, we recommend seeking medical advice before using any new product on your skin, whether that be a raw ingredient, a DIY product you’ve made yourself, or commercially formulated product.

    Please exercise caution when using essential oils. If you are pregnant or have any kind of health or skin condition, we recommend you speak to your doctor before use. Essential oils are highly concentrated liquids, so use in moderation. Pure essential oils should never be used directly on the skin and should never be ingested. When using an essential oil for the first time, do a skin patch test. Each essential oil is unique and may not be suited to everyone. Please research potential benefits as well as safety precautions before using any essential oil. Some essential oils may interfere with medication. Check with your medical professional if you have any concerns.
