No free lunch: There's no such thing as a free lunch. In other words, there're always some potential risks or side effects.

Someone bought me tea made w/ lavender flowers, lemon balm, & feverfew. Advertised as headache relief tea. Is it safe to use & if so how often?

Someone bought me tea made w/ lavender flowers, lemon balm, & feverfew. Advertised as headache relief tea. Is it safe to use & if so how often?

Safe but: Whether it works or not is another question. As for the dose, there is no scientific study on this especially given that the potency of the active ingredient(s) among different batches of the plants are not known and have not been standardized. Having said that, most people should be able to tolerate up to 4 cups of herbal tea daily as a rule of thumb- again just my personal opinion. ...Read more
