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.
Douglas Fir - Can help with respiratory tract pain and swelling (inflammation), colds, cough, bronchitis, fever, and sore mouth and throat. Douglas Fir needles are high in vitamin C, vitamin A, and antioxidants. Inhaling the steam and drinking the tea can help loosen mucus from the respiratory system. It is also taken for muscle and nerve pain.
Elderberries - Rich in Vitamin C and Antioxidants. Potential benefits include boosted immune function, heart and blood vessel health, and anti-inflammatory effects. Black elderberry extracts and flower infusions have been shown to help reduce the severity and length of influenza.
Linden Flowers & Leaves - Linden is a gentle and hydrating tea. Benefits may include promoting relaxation, helping you sleep, and soothing your digestive tract. Quercetin, an antioxidant found in Linden tea, has been proven to be effective against inflammation, especially in the cardiovascular system. Linden can also alleviate pain, particularly that related to skin irritations and muscle and joint spasms.
Marshmallow Root - Best known for its use in treating coughs and sore throats but can also fight infections and is commonly used for stomach ulcers, diarrhea and constipation.
Ginger - Certain chemical compounds in fresh ginger help your body ward off germs. They’re especially good at halting growth of bacteria and may also keep viruses at bay. Active compounds in ginger called gingerols keep oral bacteria from growing as well. Ginger is an anti-inflammatory that may be especially helpful for treating symptoms of both rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. A daily dose of ginger may help you battle your “bad” or LDL cholesterol levels and it is loaded with antioxidants, compounds that prevent stress and damage to your body’s DNA.
Lemon Peel - It has a wide range of vitamins and minerals that can boost your immune system. The peel's limonene, an antioxidant found in fruit peels, may lower your risk of cancer, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and other chronic diseases.
Yarrow - Used for thousands of years for its potential health benefits. In fact, its genus name, Achillea, refers to the warrior Achilles in Greek mythology, as he used yarrow to treat his soldiers’ wounds. Yarrow has been used to enhance wound healing, alleviate digestive issues, help reduce symptoms of depression and anxiety, aid brain health and fight inflammation.
Rooibos - Free from Caffeine and packed with antioxidants. Rooibos promotes healthy digestion in the body and a study in 2013 at the Oxidative Stress Research Centre, Cape Peninsula University of Technology, has proven the ability of rooibos to improve liver function and protect the liver against oxidative damage.
Wild Cherry Bark - Has been used traditionally by herbalists to treat coughs and other lung problems as well as to treat diarrhea and to relieve pain. Wild cherry bark contains cyanogenic glycosides, particularly prunasin. These glycosides, once broken apart in the body, act to relieve choughs.
Rose Hips - Due to its high levels of antioxidants, rosehip tea may boost your immune system, aid weight loss, reduce joint pain, support healthy-looking skin, and protect against heart disease.
