Good morning, tea friends! While I do hope that you all are having a beautiful and easy start to your week, I recognize that stresses and anxieties are real and present in all of our lives. Whether you are involved in a large project at work, planning a wedding, moving, dealing with little ones home from school for the summer, or anything in between, we all have stressors that cause us angst or uneasiness. While we certainly can't take away these things for you, we want to help you to navigate them and ease them.
Sourced directly from the rich banks alongside the Nile River in Egypt, these chamomile flowers are pure gold in color and dried in the desert heat. This herbal tea's only ingredient is these stunning and delicate flowers, providing you with the most of all of their benefits. After sipping this tea, you will notice feelings of serenity and peacefulness start to set in as you unwind from your day. Inhale the floral scents that accompany this and rest easy in knowing that you have done all that you can today and tomorrow's challenges are still at bay.
Our C of Tranquility tea is one that we blend here and created to invoke just what the title suggests - tranquility. It is a calming blend comprised of chamomile flowers, hibiscus, lemongrass, and rosehips. We included our chamomile flowers for their ability to help you ease into the evening and relax. Both hibiscus and rosehips we included mainly for their delightful flavors, but they are also packed with antioxidants to help stave off sickness. Lemongrass is known to help with alleviating heightened blood pressure - a common symptom of stress. If you are feeling overwhelmed, try taking a dip in the C of Tranquility to relax and let us know how you feel!
When stressed, a common issue is having trouble getting to sleep or staying asleep. We have a few blends to help with this, as well. First off is our Gentle Slumber herbal blend. Our Gentle Slumber is a calming blend comprised of chamomile flowers, peppermint, and rooibos. The well known benefits of chamomile are mentioned above. Peppermint, and spearmint, are both known for their properties of helping to regulate hormonal health, especially in women. Hormone levels play an immense role in your stress and anxiety management, so working to keep your hormones in check will help you to manage both. Lastly rooibos provides you with a whole host of antioxidants which will help you to keep sickness or viruses away in a time when you are already under stressors. Sometimes a quick chat with the sandman is all you need to relieve a bit of your anxieties, and our Gentle Slumber tea is a great way to summon him! Next up, our Sleep Better tea!
Our Sleep Better tea has become increasingly popular and when you get the chance to try it, you will have no question as to why. It is an organic blend made up of valerian root, lemon myrtle, verbena, spearmint, chamomile, and lavender. Valerian root is an ingredient similar to chamomile, in that it has been used for throughout history as a natural sedative and anxiety reducer. Numerous studies have been done to support these findings and thus we highly recommend this tea to any customer that comes to us expressing struggles with stress or anxiety. Both lemon myrtle and verbena, similarly, are natural sedatives, but also add a nice, light citrus taste to this blend. We have touched previously upon the spearmint and chamomile components of this tea, but lastly, the lavender helps to promote restfulness and prolong your periods of REM sleep. Try slowly sipping a cup of this after a stressful day and let us know if it stays true to its namesake and helps your to Sleep Better!
