Lavender Tea? Tranquillity in a cup
From its floral aroma to the lovely colour of its leaves, lavender is one of the most soothing herbs we can think of.
Did you know drinking lavender tea is not only delicious and relaxing but can help your body with everything from tight muscles to anxiety and insomnia?
Read on to learn more about the amazing benefits of our organic lavender tea:
One of lavender’s best-known benefits is its calming effect on feelings of anxiety and restlessness. Lavender calms your brain and nervous system, lessening feelings of anxiety or restlessness. Lavender also has the potential to calm high blood pressure.
Experiencing insomnia? An evening cup of lavender tea not only imparts the calming benefits named above, but it also contains potassium, magnesium, and zinc.
They have shown these nutrients, particularly zinc to improve the quality of your sleep.
Feeling a little queasy? Lavender tea can help improve digestion and ease an upset stomach. A cup of lavender tea can quickly ease discomfort from nausea, vomiting, bloating, gas, and indigestion. Lavender stimulates bile production, which helps your body break down food. And lavender’s naturally calming effects can soothe a cramping stomach and even calm the part of the brain responsible for nausea.
Studies suggest that lavender tea is a strong anti-inflammatory. A study involving bronchial asthma in mice suggested that lavender can calm the symptoms of this and other inflammation-related ailments.
Polysaccharides are compounds found in lavender that are also very effective against inflammation and might ease symptoms of conditions like arthritis and rheumatism.
Lavender’s calming and anti-inflammatory properties also make it a helpful aid in relieving pain. Sore muscles after a heavy workout? Recovering from an injury? Through the labour pains of childbirth? A cup of lavender tea may reduce the intensity of any pain you are experiencing (unless your doctor or care provider advises otherwise!).
They have also shown lavender to be a potent anti-fungal. lavender tea may be very helpful in controlling the overgrowth of candida in the body. Candida is a naturally occurring yeast we all have in our digestive tract. An overgrowth of candida can cause a myriad of unpleasant symptoms, from bloating and fatigue to the aggravation of autoimmune diseases.
Lavender tea also contains antioxidants. Antioxidants are chemical compounds that destroy free radicals in the body. Free radicals are byproducts of oxygen metabolising in the body that cause a lot of damage to your cells and tissues. This damage can include everything from wrinkles to cancer!
