Just as alfalfa restores poor soils, it can help restore poor souls. It's a nutritive tonic that gently helps cleanse and cool body systems. Alfalfa is also used in cases of poor appetite. In a tea, alfalfa has a soft, delicate, hay-like flavor. It melds very nicely with stronger herbs and especially complements the flavors of mint and lemon. The powder is added as a dietary supplement to vegetable juices or added to blended beverages such as breakfast, protein or other drinks. It's often an ingredient in green super food blends where it's combined with herbs like spirulina, wheat grass, barley grass, chlorella and spinach powder. Alfalfa leaf powder can also be encapsulated or combined with other herb powders in herbal formulas.

To make alfalfa tea, pour 1 cup of boiling water over 1 teaspoon of herb. Cover and let steep 3 to 5 minutes. Add 1 teaspoon of alfalfa leaf powder as a dietary supplement in blended drinks.
