Herbal Tea

On this cold Autumn-like day there's nothing like being inside cosy warm, sipping on a yummy hot herbal tea. But besides this, herbal tea has many health benefits. 

From soothing tummy pains, to helping insomnia, to improving concentration, herbal teas have all sorts of healing elements.

On a side note herbal tea is infact not actually made of tea at all, rather an infusion of leaves, seeds, roots or bark in which is extracted in hot water.

Choosing the right tea for your health benefit:
(of course this list is quite limited)

Peppermint Tea: relieves the symptoms of abdominal gas and bloating and relieves muscle spasms.

Ginger Tea: great digestive aid, can be used to curb nausea, vomiting or an upset stomach.

Roibos tea: high in Vitamin C and has also been know for its antioxidant properties.

Lemon Balin tea: helpful for lifting the spirits and can help improve concentration.

Rosehip tea: high in Vitamin C, which is important for the immune system, skin & tissue health and adrenal function.
