In today’s blog post about natural stress
relief, we’re going to discuss the
benefits of herbal tea.
Herbal teas have been consumed by humans
for thousands of years. While there are
numerous benefits for your physical health,
there are also many for your mental health as well.
It all depends on what kind you drink.
For example, you're probably aware of the
fact that green tea is incredibly healthy
for you. In addition to preventing cancer,
this herbal tea also helps with your

of green tea a day can help improve your

For the optimal effect, it's recommended that
you consume about 28 grams of green tea per day.
Another herbal tea that can reduce your
stress levels is jasmine tea.
Jasmine tea is derived from Jasmine flowers.
These flowers are highly nutritious, and
packed with antioxidants that specifically
help with your brain's functionality.
The antioxidants found in jasmine tea specifically
protect the cells in our brain that are associated
with age-related damage.
As we get older, these cells can weaken and cause
us to react differently to stress. We're not able
to handle it as well as we did when we were younger.
But consuming a few cups of jasmine tea per
day can actually prevent this from happening,
meaning you can naturally reduce your stress.
There are other types of herbal teas on the market
that can naturally help your stress, so try a few
different ones and see if you have a favorite. Or
drink different ones throughout the day.
You may also find that you only want to consume
herbal tea when you're stressed out.
As always, check your labels and know the
ingredients. Look for non-bleached tea bags
if using bags and organic leaf teas.

As we discuss recharging our bodies, I have to tell you that using these two essential oils have been a lifesaver for my adrenals!! I find nutmeg to irritate my skin on it's own, so I use a bit of coconut oil. Apply 1-2 drops of NUTMEG over adrenals (found on mid back just about an inch on either side of your spine) first thing in the morning. I then apply a drop of ENDOFLEX over my thyroid and a drop or two over my adrenals as well! Check out the picture below. The adrenal glands are the yellow on top of the kidneys.
