Recipe – “Lemon Balm Anxiety Reducer”

It has been a while since I last blogged, now it is essentially winter and very cold today -26  (wind chill of -40), in Calgary.   By the way, once in while I get a earful that we live in Igloo’s, not in Calgary, sorry to say.   But if you are one in many that decide to go jogging is this freezing weather, you might just want to build one of those Igloo’s in the piles of snow along the way.    Enjoy this recipe and brew a nice cup of tea, stay warm.
