While regular tea is a favoured ‘go-to’ beverage in any situation, herbal tea is a special brew with a number of curative properties. It has also been known to relieve the onset of symptoms associated with colds and flu, so with the threat of these maladies lurking in the winter air, it’s worth looking into the properties prevalent in simple home remedies that involve a steaming cup of fragrant herbal tea.
Make your own blend of Ginger Tea by infusing some grated or ground fresh ginger into hot water. Add a few drops of lemon and a teaspoonful of honey and you have a delicious tea that will soothe a sore throat and help with nausea or digestive problems. A variety of Ginger Teas are available commercially that also have similar anti-microbial and anti-viral effects as the homemade blend.
Enjoy the many benefits of Tulsi Tea by placing a few leaves of fresh Tulsi in a pan. ‘Bruise’ the leaves slightly with the edge of a spoon, before pouring in some hot water. Cover the pan and leave to infuse. Sip this exotic brew to enjoy manifold health advantages, as Tulsi is known to be beneficial for fever, asthma, lung disorders, heart disease, and stress. It supports your adrenal glands and helps your immune system.
Mint Tea is one of the most popular brews. Mint, or Pudina, is a well-known herb and used extensively in Indian cuisine, so it is familiar to the taste buds. Mint has properties that help soothe sore throats and provide relief from respiratory problems. It is also very refreshing and a great pick-me-up during, or after, a cold.
Chamomile Tea is a bedtime brew and is great for a good sleep. Its relaxing properties are well known, as also its ability to calm an upset stomach and help ease nausea or indigestion related to flu.
Stress is one of the major causes of illness. Stress lowers your body’s resistance and leaves you vulnerable to everything from flu to heart disease. It decreases the body’s lymphocytes – the white blood cells that help fight off infection, leaving you open to viruses, including the common cold and cold sores. One way to ease stress is to sip a cup of Lavender Tea. It not only decreases your stress levels but promotes restful sleep, especially if you have a cold or flu.
Sip on herbal teas all through the year, and boost your immune system simply, naturally and flavourfully!
