Homemade Herbal drink.

This simple homemade herbal drink was passed on by a relative of ours.

The medicinal value for this herbal plant "Wandering Jew" is quite wide ranging-this recipe helps in the cleansing of our kidney and bladder.


The name of the herbal plant is "Wandering Jew"

Pluck the leaves with their stem.
Rinse it thoroughly with water.
Boil them with dried Honey dates until they turned light purplish (like Ribena).
Cool it and drink as much as you like.

A refreshing and healthy drink-the honey dates lends some sweetness to it.
