7 Juicy Herbs for Winter Hydration

During winter, maintaining hydration is crucial, not just through water intake but also by incorporating hydrating herbs that can help support the body's moisture levels. We put together a list of 7 herbs for extra hydration during cold winter months.

7 Juicy Herbs for Winter Hydration
We put together a little list of our favorite hydrating plants for you during cold winter months. All of these plants are calming, taking your hydration to the next level in a way that water alone just can’t. There’s nothing wrong with water - we love it - but medicinal herbs kick it up a notch. Many of these herbs are demulcent, which is a fancy, herbalist way of saying they have slimy-gooey plant properties that coat and soothe soft tissues in the body. This nourishing plant goo delivers deep hydration.

The best way to activate these powerfully hydrating plant properties is with a cold infusion. Steep the plant material in tepid water and leave overnight in the fridge. In the morning, plunge (or strain) and pour. Don’t forget to compost the plant material! You can sweeten your cooling brew with maple or simple syrup. Or keep it simple and sip over ice without the sweet.

And for the food herbs, our favorite way to eat them is right off the tree.
