Description

Peace Tea Leafology

Peace Tea is a light, clearing herbal infusion, for gentle moments and hope.

Love conquers all.

Spearmint leaves are a cooling and clearing base, the perfect refreshment after a meal, or soothing before sleep. Spearmint tea has been found to have a positive effect on skin problems, promoting a clear complexion and calming acne.

Peace Tea LeafologyYarrow has been used medicinally since ancient times. The genus of its latin name (Achillea millefolium) is a reference to Achilles (of the heel fame), a warrior who according to Greek mythology, used the anti-inflammatory properties of the yarrow plant to help heal soldiers wounds. Yarrow is also thought to help alleviate digestive issues, boost mood and help to lessen anxiety.

Chamomile flowers (which have a rounded, ‘apple’ scent) and lavender buds are famous for their gentle, relaxing natural scents and can be helpfully associated with ‘winding down’.

Peace Tea LeafologyMarshmallow root (latin name ‘Althaea officinalis’) has long been used as a folk remedy for respiratory illnesses such as coughs and colds due to its high mucilage content. It’s also believed to help with digestion as well as soothing skin conditions. (Click here to discover more Leafology skincare products containing marshmallow!)

Beetroot (considered a ‘superfood’ by some) gets its rich red colour from its betaine component, and is an amazing source of iron (and therefore can be helpful for women during menstruation). Good for the circulation of blood in general, it’s also believed to be a good detoxifier, boosting liver function.

Peace Tea LeafologyLemon balm comes from the mint family and is thought to be a bit of a mood booster as well as a relaxing sedative, alleviating anxiety and stress while promoting feelings of peace and calm.

Raspberry leaves have anecdotally been found to help relieve menstrual cramps and are a popular herbal remedy for women seeking such relief. The tea is also thought to be a good source of magnesium, potassium and antioxidants, with some metabolism-boosting effects too.

Peace Tea LeafologyHibiscus flowers, beautiful crimson and packed with vitamin C, have a somewhat ‘tart’ sweetness to them. Studies have found that hibiscus tea can have a slightly lowering effect on blood pressure as well as cholesterol, and be a weight management aid.

Dandelion leaves can act as a diuretic and help reduce bloating and other digestive issues. They are also full of vitamins and minerals.

Rose petals are scattered among the blend, providing delightful colour as well as gentle, floral flavour. The antioxidants (polyphenols) in rose petal tea are thought to rival those in green tea! A beautiful, feminine touch, rose tea is also used traditionally for help with menstrual pain.

Please be aware that the ingestion of certain herbs is not recommended during pregnancy.

To indulge:
Add one teaspoon of tea per person (plus one for the pot; golden rule!) to a pot of water just below boiling point. Allow to steep for around 5+ minutes before pouring. No milk required.

Enjoy hot or allow to cool for a refreshing and health-boosting alternative to water.
