The Lab: The 5 Fresh Herbs We’re Drinking on the Commune (and Why)

Apr 12, 2020
While it’s not true that drinking warm liquids will prevent coronavirus, we’ve nonetheless fallen into a routine of herbal teas here in Commune Topanga — mint in the morning, lavender at night, rosemary, sage, and thyme (yes, they make great tea!) in between. These herbs are simply bursting out of the hillsides right now, and their vibrant aliveness has suddenly made our cabinet of tea bags seem dry and dusty in comparison. 

Plus, all fives of these common plants have a host of medicinal qualities. Here, our resident nurse and herb-nerd Julia explains some of their benefits. 

What herbs are you harvesting and steeping right now? Let us know in the comments.
