Adding some beneficial herbal teas too your everyday routine is a no-brainer when it comes to health and beauty benefits. One of those “super-teas” is the multi-tasking Rose Tea.
A Whole Host of Health
Rose tea helps to ease menstrual pains, boost the immune system, help speed up healing, improve digestion, detoxify the body, relieve respiratory infections, stimulate a positive mood AND regulate your sleep cycle!
Boost Your Beauty
In other terms, improved digestion means no weight gain, a detoxifying tonic means clear, radiant skin, a great night’s sleep means waking refreshed and energized and a positive mood means everyone gets to see more of your beautiful, beaming smile! What’s not to love! Oh yes, and a lot less crankiness when menstruating – winner! Rose tea can help to regulate hormones and ease uterine congestion, but also eliminate cramping and mood swings that are often associated with menstruation.
The Amazing Rose Plant
Receiving a bunch of roses is delightful, but actually using the plant for tea is even better! Rose tea is made from whole rose blossoms or the rose petals themselves (after being dried). The many benefits of rose tea are a result of the high concentrations of vitamin C, polyphenols, vitamin A, various minerals, and other antioxidants. If, at first, the taste is strange to you, try adding a teaspoon of honey.
And, in winter, it’s important to pay attention to feelings of being a bit down. You can try and prevent this by drinking a cup or two of rose tea every day for its naturally uplifting qualities – great for stress relief too! The effect that this type of tea can have on hormone levels is well-known, which is closely related to how the neurotransmitters in our brain are regulated.
Rosy Sleep Patterns
The natural sedative property of rose tea makes it a wonderful beverage to finish your day with. It will reduce inflammation, erase stress and regulate hormones related to Circadian rhythm and sleep patterns. If you suffer from insomnia, or regularly have disturbed or interrupted sleep, trying rose tea before going to bed might be a great option.
Keeping a high level of immunity can also be harder in winter, which is another reason to grab yourself some Rose Tea. As with many different plants and flowers used to make herbal teas, rose tea is high in vitamin C, one of the most important vitamins in our body. It is an essential part of our immune system, as it stimulates the production of white blood cells and functions as an antioxidant, effectively lowering oxidative stress.
What an amazing plant! The rose smells amazing, looks beautiful, and imparts a host of health and beauty benefits! Don’t miss out!
