Ingredients

  • Hot water
  • Dried wild lilac leaves

Directions

You'll want to pick your own leaves and dry them as you can't buy it in any store that I know of.
Steep about a tsp. of the dry leaves in a cup of hot water to your own taste.
Note: It helps a bad back, good for the kidney's also, there may be some other medicinal properties attributed to it.

Webmasters Note: The desert chaparral bush has the Latin name Larrea tridentata or Larrea diver-icata and is also known as the greasewood or creosote bush.
