Growing up in the swamp, I learned from the Woman. She helped me to understand the benefits of different herbal teas.
Info about Allie: The Woman never leaves her home without covering herself. She does not want anyone in the local area to know about her youthful appearance. She is teaching me all of her secrets. I guess learning this stuff is better than going to a regular school.

Buchu helps bloating and excess water weight and promotes perspiration.
*Useful for urinary tract infections.
*Has a stimulating effect on the body.
How to make a tea:
To make an infusion, or tea, pour a cup of boiling water over one or two teaspoons of the dried leaves, either loose or placed in an infuser. Let this stand for 10 minutes. Strain and drink.
