I recently tried Bigelow herbal tea, mint tea medley with peppermint/spearmint tea. it was delicious, soothing and calming. Not only does this tea make me feel good, but it is also good for me. Peppermint tea is relaxing, and it is believed if you drink it before bedtime, you will get a good night’s sleep.
Peppermint tea is recommended for stress and sleep deprivation. This is good news foe menopausal women who find it hard to get to sleep and stay asleep at night. Herbal tea has been shown to release tension, this will also help you relax and sleep better.
Spearmint goes back to the days of Native Americans. It has been used to help babies with colic, gastrointestinal issues, reduce nausea and gas. In 2013 scientists did a study where they gave chemotherapy patients either a placebo or spearmint oil, for nausea. Those who were given the spearmint oil, experienced sickness less thatn those who were given the placebo.
I remember peppermint leaves growing in an area where I grew up. The smell was heavenly. The leaves grew on each side of a path leading to a house my family later moved into. My friends would pick them and chew on them, because they tastes good. My grandmother said the mint helped with bad breath. We did not know they were healthy as well.
After we moved to the house, the path was walked on a lot and our dogs, and cats chewed on the , that the leaves, until they disappeared. I guess the animals knew what we humans did not. We had no idea of the true worth of this natural remedy.
In today’s hectic world we all need relaxation whenever we can get it. I have had times I have prayed, meditated on the bible and listened to soothing worship music. I am calm and serene. As soon as I exit my front door, I am assaulted by loud booming music, and people talking loudly on cell phones, and it bbreaks my concentration.
I find that when I drink relaxing soothing herbal teas, I am able to handle these situations just a little bit better. If you are having serious anxiety and stress related issues, you should see a health care provider. Herbal tea is not a substitute for therapy and or medication for those who need it, but it sure can help.
