Herbal Teas, What Are The Benefits?
Hello Ethnic Beauties! I've been trying to minimize my coffee intake by substituting herbal teas. Here's the thing though, I only drink coffee when I travel. How often do I travel? Twice, sometimes three times a month. To my friends that are real coffee drinkers, they think I'm nuts. My stomach wasn't liking the coffee anymore. I personally think it was the brew.
So I decided to give tea a try. I figured since I was going to experiment with teas, they should be real herbal teas and teas that would be beneficial to my skin. My colleagues in London tell me that teas bring out the best in people and say that you should never buy teas prepackaged in a tea bag.
Your teas should be well-crafted. They are a community of herbs that are blended together to achieve a desired goal. I was looking for a way to stay alert. Someone else might need adrenal support, or help sleeping or an uplifting experience.
It's interesting how teas can be categorized as herbs. I think the more natural, from the plant - into the pot, the teas maintain their natural ability to provide the properties and benefits you desire.
When we look for teas that help us achieve beautiful skin, we're really looking for teas that will help in detoxing the body. Dandelion and burdock are two such teas. They help with nourishing your liver and kidneys. Burdock is considered a "mover" that supports the removal of toxins from your body. It can be eaten in stews and soups as well as used to brew as a tea. Dandelion, can aid in treating high blood pressure and abnormal blood sugar levels. It is extremely beneficial in treating your liver and the bitterness in its taste help encourage bile production.
What do these herbal teas have to do with your skin? Well, beauty begins in your colon. When your colon is backed up and has sludge buildup, your skin will only show toxins trying to remove themselves. You'll see breakouts, skin discoloration as well as dry or oily skin.
1. You have to always make sure your hands are clean as well as your equipment. Then you’ve got to make sure your hands and equipment are dry. The smallest amount of moisture can actually cause your herbal teas to spoil.
2. Once you've got your recipe in place, weigh your herbs out one at a time into a small mixing bowl and then pour them into a larger mixing bowl for blending. Make sure your bowl is stainless steel.
3. Mix your herbs slowly. Remember, you're mixing your energy into your blend. The more at peace and tranquil you are the better your herbal tea blend will become part of your essence. You’re actually infusing your energy into your herbs. You get to experience the aroma and texture.
Small batches are best when starting out. Remember you're working with real herbs and spices depending on your tea blend and they can kick up dust as you’re working with your hands.
4. Store them in a cool dry place, inside a stainless steel tin.
