How to make CCF Tea or Ayurvedic Spice Tea and save your body?
Typically Nicknamed CCF tea, or Cumin, Coriander and Fennel Tea is one of the simplest and most famous formulas for burning up that excess of spring moisture and detox. The revitalizing yet mild blend gets right to the point, helping to warm up your circulation and clear out water retention. Its flushing action simultaneously cleanses the urinary tract and reduces water weight. The CCF tea stokes metabolism and the digestive fire, restoring vitality where winter sluggishness abounds. Its mild bitterness revs up the spring detoxification process and purifies the blood. The CCF Tea restores tone and tightness to swollen spring tissues. It is a soothing formula that reduces agitation and inflammation. It also restores a calm clarity and spaciousness to a tense mind.
1/4 tsp Coriander Seed
1/4 tsp Cumin
1/4 tsp Fennel Seeds
Cumin (Cuminum cyminum): The Sanskrit name for cumin (Jiraka) literally translates as ‘promoting digestion’. It is rich in essential oils and has an anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, and gentle diuretic effect on the body. Cumin is indicated for sluggish or slow digestion, indigestion, nausea, flatulence, and bloating.
Coriander (Coriandrum sativum): The Sanskrit name for coriander (Dhanyaka) also means ‘rich’. Coriander is a gentle appetite stimulant and anti-spasmodic herb that is particularly suited for the hyper, acidic, or otherwise ‘burning’ qualities of digestion. It is soothing and anti-inflammatory to the tissues, and it’s diuretic action removes excess heat and toxins from the body.
Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare): The Sanskrit name for fennel (Madhurika) translates as “the sweet one”. Fennel is particularly useful as an anti-spasmodic, relieving painful flatulence, cramps, bloating, indigestion, and colic in children. It is rich in sweet tasting volatile oils, and assists digestive flow in it’s natural downward motion. It is also slightly diuretic and has the added benefit of increasing milk production in nursing mothers (don’t worry – if you aren’t nursing, you won’t start producing milk by drinking fennel tea).
