A Tiny Seed With Big Uses

God gave us herbs and plants for food and medicine. I would like to share a little about one of those herbs.
A lot of people know you can boil some water and sugar then add fennel seeds. Then you give one teaspoon to your baby up to six times during the day. This helps colic and gassy tummies.
But bigger humans can benefit from this amazing little seed as well. It really does help a gassy tummy. (even us big people have that problem!) And it can make a pleasant tea to sip on at work or home. Let me share one of my recipes:
Slightly grind 1 or 2 tablespoons in seed or coffee grinder. Cut a piece of thread and a piece of cheese cloth. Put your ground fennel seed in the cheese cloth and tie it up. Take a tea bag ( I use ginsing tea) and another tea that is naturally sweet like Sweet Spice Good Earth tea or licorice root tea. Put all 3 bags in your thermos cup and fill with hot water. You can sip this delicious tea all morning.
