Spring is happening in Wisconsin! How pretty is this Red Clover blossom infusion? An infusion releases the amazing minerals and phytoestrogens contained in these precious flowers. Hot flashes? I am right there with you! Red clover blossom infusion may help lessen the severity. It is also rich in iron, chromium and vitamin B.*
I take a weighed ounce of dried red clover blossom and put it inside a quart jar. Fill with boiling water, cover and leave out over night. The next morning, strain through a mesh sieve into a new container. Keep refrigerated. Try to drink at full strength throughout the day. If you find this too strong, dilute with water or try honey or agave syrup as a sweetener. I drink herbal infusions like tea, either cold with ice and a lemon slice or warm with sweetener. See what works for you! (Herbal infusions should not be kept longer than 24-48 hours.)
