From the Publisher
Since ancient times herbs have been prized for their
health-enhancing properties, and the therapeutic benefits of herbs,
from kavakava to ginseng and ginko biloba have been embraced by
Americans in growing numbers.
At the zenlike oasis of Elixir, West Hollywood's hottest watering
hole, licensed herbalists dispense a tempting array of refreshing
smoothies, energizing tonics, and soothing teas that deliver all
the benefits of tonic herbs in a most delicious way. In
Elixir's Tonics and Teas, they share their recipes
so that everyone can benefit from signature blends like Greet the
Day Tea and Yin from the Cold Tonic.
Elixir's philosophy is to create a comfortable blend of Eastern and
Western practices and tastes. Each efficacious blend of herbs is
combined with juice and other flavorful ingredients so these
smoothies, sodas, and teas, and even cocktails are delightful
quaffs that can be enjoyed anytime. Boost your system before a
workout with a glass of Energy Today Tonic, or rebalance the body
after an illness with Taming the Dragon; prepare your mind to focus
with a cup of Brainy Day Chai, or calm yourself after a difficult
week with a Steady in Spirit.
Helpful guidelines from Elixir's trained staff make choosing the
right tonic for nourishing mind, body, or spirit simple, and a
comprehensive glossary of herbal products takes the guesswork out
of using these beneficial plants.
Elixir's Tonics and Teas is an irresistible
introduction to the power of herbal infusions and a toast to
general well being.
