Goat Weed tea
Horny goat leaf may be prepared as a tea, and is often mixed with Damiana. While both of these herbs are thought of primarily as sexual tonics, they also contain many of the same chemicals found in various "corti-slim" products for weight loss. Using the whole herb as opposed to taking standardized extracts is a holistic way of getting the full range of benefits from the herb, in a safe dosage.
Mix together equal parts of each herb and use 1 tablespoon of dried herb to 2 cups of hot water. Bring to a slow boil and simmer for 20 minutes. Drink on an empty stomach.
