1. Chamomile

A blend containing chamomile can reduce menstrual pain and help with insomnia, relaxing the body and mind. It can also boost immunity and help the body fight illness. Chamomile is also an excellent skincare ingredient as its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties can control acne breakouts.

2. Peppermint

Peppermint tea is a remedy for cramping, digestive discomfort and nausea. Its antioxidant, anticancer, antibacterial, and antiviral properties have been proven to help with digestive tract problems.

3. Ginger

Ginger tea blends are most well known for fighting nausea and vomiting, especially in pregnant women. What is not commonly known is that the antioxidant properties of ginger can also prevent stomach ulcers and relieve constipation.

4. Hibiscus

This pink-hued blend is just as appealing to the eye as it is to the body. It exhibits antioxidant properties, helping to prevent cell damage caused by free radicals, and studies have shown it to be a strong deterrent against bird flu.

5. Cornflower

Cornflower tea is popularly known as “colour-changing tea” – when mixed with lime, it turns an indigo blue tea into pink. The flowers are used as decorations on cakes but also exhibit medicinal properties, helping to alleviate menstrual disorders, fevers, chest congestion, and inflammation.

6. Rose

Most commonly known for its soothing properties, rose tea is excellent for helping reduce stress and anxiety. Its petals are full of antioxidants and vitamin C. This tea also exhibits antimicrobial properties and may help with digestive issues and fighting off infection.
