Looking for ways to stay cool this summer? Try using these two Chinese Herbs that can be picked up at your local famers market or favorite produce store:
1. Watermelon (Xi Gua)- clears summerheat especially with significant thirst, and generates fluids. Eat in moderation so as not to snuff digestive fire.
2. Mint (Bo He)- clears heat from the upper body, and can be helpful in venting heat rashes. It's a good choice for those who might feel agitated or frustrated in the heat. Add a few fresh leaves to your water.
