Herbal Teas

May 15, 2015

Warning:
Never use any plant as a tea unless you are 100% sure of its identification. you are strongly advised to consult a Doctor before treating yourself or your family with home remedies.

Nothing delights more than a nice cuppa tea. it provides a brief pause in time to calm or stimulate; a moment to stop, relax, and think of the next step; a pause during which we can “be” and not “do”.

And this pleasant pause has its own ritual – choosing just the right teas to quench and satisfy the thirst, boiling the water, choosing the right pot and cup, and enjoying the aroma even before we savour our tea. ordinary tea has a stimulatory and anti oxidant effect and is usually drunk with mil and something sugar.

Below are some herbal and botanical’s found in tisanes.

Allspice- is said to help soothe the common cold and relieve upset stomachs.

Borage – is related to Comfey, but without the surrounding controversy. it lifts mild depression.

Chamomile – is known for its sedative attributes and research points to a host of anti inflammatory and anti spasmodic properties.

Hawthrone – has been used to strengthen the heart and increase blood flow to the extremities warming up cold feet and hands.

Lemon Balm –  also known as Mellissa was said by Clupeper in the 17th Century to re new youth, strengthen the brain and prevent baldness.

Lemongrass – used in teas for its calming properties

Parsely – has a diuretic effect and is purported to help reduce uric acid levels.

Peppermint – stress relieving attributes and helps with stomach and digestive issues.

Rooibos – caffeine free and is low in tannin. great tea for pregnant woman and nursing mothers.

Rosehips – combined with hibiscus leaves making red coloured tea rich in vitamin C

Rosemary – Herb tea is mood elevating and energizing sending blood to the brain aiding memory and healing liverish headaches.

Sage –  great in relieving heavy perspiration of night sweats.

Sarsaparilla is said to promote energy and healthy skin.
