Herbal Teas That Heal

Don’t you just love that first cup of tea in the morning, or sipping on tea at the end of a long day? No matter what time of the day people all across the world love tea, and with over 1500 types of tea there is something for everyone.

But, did you know that certain teas can help in other ways besides relaxation? From digestive problems to liver assistance, insomnia, and bloating – there are teas that can help ease an array of health problems.

Let’s take a look at some of these teas and what they can help with:

This strong tea is very high in antioxidants, which are mainly responsible for protecting your cells and compounds from pollutants and damages.

Chamomile tea is most commonly known for aiding in sleep, but it is also fantastic for simply calming your mind and body when you’re feeling stressed out. It’s also great for soothing an upset stomach and easing cramps. Last but not least, chamomile boosts the immune system.

A cup of ginger tea is the ideal remedy for nausea; great for easing morning sickness and motion sickness. It can improve digestion and circulation; plus this warming herb is loaded with vitamin C, to keep your immune system strong.

It’s helpful for relieving nausea and vomiting, and also helps break down fat in your digestive system by stimulating bile production in your gallbladder.

Nettle tea prevents water retention and combats bladder infections; supports the health of the lymphatic and endocrine systems; eases asthma and allergies, and helps to keep coughs and colds at bay. Not only that, but it also makes a great skin toner and strengthening hair rinse.

A widely-used natural remedy for digestive issues like bloating and cramping, fennel also helps your body detox thanks to its super diuretic quality.

A South African favourite, Rooibos tea is excellent for giving your immune system a boost. The health-giving “red bush” has a high antioxidant content, making it a wonderful age-defying remedy for those who drink it regularly. It also promotes a healthy heart, good circulation, lower blood pressure levels and a happy digestive system.

This tea is a great liver and kidney tonic; it has a mild diuretic effect that helps to cleanse the system. Dandelion has great antioxidant abilities; it also helps to ease inflammation and relieve digestive issues.

    After a long day from the farm, the first thing i do is switch on the kettle for my most favorite chamomile tea! For a farm girl herbal teas work magic. I need all the benefits & freshness they bless me with.
