Tea to the Rescue!
Feeling a little like you're coming down with something?
I find when I feel that way, I have found that drinking Rose Hip tea and Hibiscus tea is a great way to support your body.
Rose Hips and Hibiscus petals can be bought either in your local Health Food store or on the internet.
I suggest you buy organic.
Hibiscus tea is known for Vitamin C and antioxidants. There are many benefits to drinking an occasional cup of Hibiscus tea-lowering blood pressure, lowers cholesterol, helps with Diabetes, etc. . If you're on medications, check for side effects or talk to your medical doctor first.
Rose Hip tea is a great tea to drink due to it's natural complexes of Vitamin C. Rose Hip tea has some of the highest amounts of natural Vitamin C out of all fruits & veggies.
Rose Hip tea tends to support your immune system, fights pain and inflammation, etc.
I measure out 1 teaspoon of Rose Hips. At times, I will add also 1 teaspoon of Hibiscus tea. Steep this in a cup of hot water for 10 minutes.
If you have a congested cough, try making yourself Thyme tea. Thyme tea works better as an expectorant than medicines in the store! (I've had both in the past.)
Thyme tea has:
-Expectorant ability-brings up mucus.
Take 1 teaspoon of dried Thyme and steep it in hot water for 10 minutes. Drink as often as needed. (maybe every few hours.)
