Special Note about The Benefits of our Tea Blend Ingredients:
Personalities, physical bodies and emotional bodies vary greatly between us humans. Therefore, what works well for one person may, or may not, for someone else. The list below is meant as a starting point in educating oneself on the traditional benefits of certain herbs, flowers, plants and types of tea. As with anything you ingest into your body make sure you do extensive research, including speaking with your medical care provider, to understand what will work best for you.
Catnip Leaf - Catnip tea's biggest health benefit is the calming effect that it can have on the body. Catnip contains nepetalactone, which is similar to the valepotriates found in a commonly used herbal sedative, valerian. This can improve relaxation , which may boost mood and reduce anxiety, restlessness, and nervousness.
Rose Petals - Rose contains high amounts of Vitamin C, an antioxidant vital to our body's healing process and its ability to fight off infection. One study found that rose tea may also ease flu-like symptoms like coughing and congestion. The scent can relieve stress, fight anxiety, and relax your body.
Chrysanthemum Flowers - The vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants in chrysanthemum tea can provide important health benefits. For example, potassium helps the heart, kidneys, and other organs function properly. Adequate levels of potassium in the body reduce the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, cancer, digestive disorders, and infertility.
Spearmint - A delicious, minty herb that is high in antioxidants and other beneficial plant compounds that may help balance hormones, lower blood sugar and improve digestion. It may even reduce stress and improve memory.
Lemon Balm - Lemon balm contains chemicals that can have a sedative and calming effect. It might also reduce the growth of some viruses and bacteria. It is often used for cold sores, anxiety, stress, insomnia and indigestion.
Passionflower - Boosts GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) levels in the brain, which can promote relaxation and help you sleep better. Used historically in treating anxiety, insomnia and seizures.
Lavender Buds - Drinking tea with lavender in it is a great way to induce relaxation and unwind after a tough day. It's packed with healthy compounds that can boost your immune system and alleviate pain by reducing inflammation.
Fennel Seed - According to herbalists, fennel seed is an effective aid to digestion. It can help the smooth muscles of the gastrointestinal system relax and reduce gas, bloating, and stomach cramps.
Skullcap Leaf - It has been used for more than 200 years as a mild relaxant and as a therapy for anxiety, nervous tension, and convulsions.
Cardamom Seed - An amazingly healthy seed! It may lower blood pressure, improve breathing and aid weight loss. What's more, test-tube studies show that cardamom may help fight tumors, improve anxiety, fight bacteria and protect your liver, though the evidence in these cases is less strong.
Valerian Root - Valerian root has mild sedative properties and people can use it as a sleep aid and to treat anxiety.
