Prunus persica

I'm sweet, juicy, cooling, and moist,

Relaxing nerves and tissue.

I help you when you're not content

In fact, I like to kiss you!


I allay severe nausea --

This is one of my great gifts,

Especially in pregnancy --

Use my flowers, leaves, or pits.


I am such a beautiful tree,

And I support your liver.

My fuzzy fruit's round and luscious;

Your life flows like a river.

Peach Pit Infusion

Put 8 - 12 whole, dried peach pits into a quart jar.

Cover with boiling water.

Let sit for 2-4 hours.

This refreshing herbal infusion can be drunk hot or cold.

It is delightful and strengthens your liver! Kids love it, too.
