A COOLING OLIVE, LEMON & MINT HYDRATING DRINK
Olive leaf extract is traditionally used in Western Herbal medicine to support the immune system and relieve symptoms of coughs, colds & flu. The active ingredient in olive leaf extract is Oleuropein – a phenolic compound which is one of the most powerful antioxidants around. Australian made and ‘fresh-picked’ ensures it is as close to nature as possible by retaining all of the plant’s phenolics that occur naturally in the olive leaf.
Comvita recently asked me to create 3 recipes using their very special Olive Leaf Extract.
This is recipe no:3 – A COOLING OLIVE, LEMON & MINT HYDRATING DRINK.
Ingredients to make 1 litre jug:
15mls of Comvita Fresh-Picked Olive Leaf Extract (Peppermint Flavour)

1 lemon zested and sliced
1 bunch of fresh mint leaves
Add all the ingredients to a 1 litre jug followed by the water and tea.
Stir and chill.
Drink 4 cups throughout the day to cool and hydrate.
