Four Healing Teas

Hello Sweet People,

I am back to full-time university, and part-time work so I’m sorry if my twice-weekly posts come out a little randomly as it gets busier, today I wanted to share with you four teas that help me with different problems, ailments and just when I need a pick me up.

They also taste lovely and give you a kick when you need to get going or are feeling low energy.  Before trying any check they don’t interact with any medications or tablets as some herbs do this. * Images my own or via Pinterest.

A lot of the teas are similar because these are the ingredients I keep in my kitchen and I know they work.  All are vegan unless you use honey as a sweetener. Keep in mind I am no chef or nutritionist just a foodie and creator in the kitchen. ♡

Period Cramp Tea

Sorry guys, this is a tea for the girls, I think most girls, myself included hate cramps and periods and this tea is soothing and I also find it de bloats. I’d also recommend Epsom salt baths for cramps.

2 teaspoons fresh or dried mint leaves

1 cinnamon stick

1 teaspoon dried raspberry leaf

Sweetener if wanted

Hot water

Steep 2 cups of hot water with all the ingredients for five minutes till fragrant, strain and serve in a cute mug with a teaspoon or two of sweetener.

Sore Throat Tea 

Sore throats drive me mad especially when I had tonsils, this little guy really helps and it also tastes pretty good for a healing brew.

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1 to 2 teaspoons sweetener ( I like agave)

1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger

2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar

Hot water

Mix together all ingredients along with one and a half cups of hot water and serve in a cosy mug.

Energy Tea

I’m not sure why but I find ginger so invigorating when tired, this is simple and lovely. This is also a skin loving brew.

1 green tea bag

2 teaspoons ginger

2 teaspoons lemon juice

Sweetener

Hot water

Steep the green tea bag for four minutes with a cup of hot water, then add in the ginger, lemon juice, sweetener and enjoy preferably with a dog on your lap.

Cinnamon Tea 

This tea is wonderful for when you are trying to banish sweet cravings, it’s also good for bloating and digestion, an all-rounder really. The cayenne pepper provides a little zing but it doesn’t taste spicy or weird.

1 green tea bag

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

Pinch of Cayenne pepper

Hot water

Brew the green tea bag for 4 minutes with a cup of hot water before adding in the cinnamon, lemon juice and cayenne pepper. Add in sweetener of choice.
