Soothing Honeysuckle Tea. My mom has a honeysuckle plant by her front door. The aroma is a sweet and a very pleasant smell, which reminds of honey. I love the smell. This plan blooms in the summertime. There are various colors for the flower from white, yellow, to pink. This plant is quite big because it has a lot of vines with lots of flowers.

Honeysuckle tea has been used for a long time. This tea is good for the body especially to help with anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial problems. Sweet tea is good for cold, flu, or anyone with asthma. If anyone has issues with digestion, this tea will help with that. Another thing, this tea can be used as a mouth wash. Make two cups of hot water with half a cup of the honeysuckle flower. Let it cool. Strain. Take the water and rinse or gargle with the water. Besides the above benefits, honeysuckle tea helps with diabetes, arthritis, auto-immune disorders, and skin infections.
