Peppermint (Mentha × piperita) is an aromatic herb in the mint family. Native to Europe and Asia, it has been used for thousands of years for its pleasant, minty taste and health benefits.
Peppermint leaves contain several essential oils including menthol, menthone and limonene and it is the menthol that gives peppermint its cooling properties and recognizably minty scent. In addition to its pleasant smell, peppermint has antibacterial properties that help kill the germs that cause dental plaque and so may improve your breath.
Peppermint appears to act as a muscle relaxant and pain reliever, so may diminish certain types of headaches. This apparent ability could be attributed to the menthol too which potentially increases blood flow, provides a cooling sensation and eases pain. But peppermint oil has also been shown to relax muscles in your digestive system and improve various digestive symptoms. Therefore, peppermint tea may provide similar benefits.
Peppermint has antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. Because of this, it is possible that peppermint tea may fight clogged sinuses due to infections, the common cold and allergies.
Peppermint tea may also improve energy levels and reduce daytime fatigue. While there are no studies on peppermint tea specifically, research demonstrates that natural compounds in peppermint may have beneficial effects on energy.
Finally, because peppermint acts as a muscle relaxant, it may also relieve period pain.
Rose hips are the round, seed-filled bulbs found underneath rose petals. Unlike rose blossoms, which bloom in the spring and summer months, rose hips generally grow after the petals have bloomed and started falling off, which is usually in early to mid-Autumn. In fact, they’re considered sweeter when picked after the first frost of the season.
Rose hips get their red-orange colour from carotenoid pigments known as lycopene and beta carotene. These pigments are thought to promote skin and eye health.
They’re also rich in disease-fighting antioxidants, such as vitamin C, catechins, quercetin, and ellagic acid. A diet rich in these compounds can help lower inflammation and oxidative stress in your body.
Furthermore, vitamin C plays a key role in collagen synthesis and supporting the immune system.
Lavender is widely used as an aromatherapy agent and supplement to help with anxiety, depression, and fatigue.
Studies suggest that compounds in lavender may stimulate activity in certain areas of the brain and influence the transmission of impulses between brain cells in ways that boost mood and produce a calming effect, which is also thought to boost sleep. It is widely believed that enjoying a cup of lavender tea to unwind before bed could help you have better sleep. Research suggests that the calming fragrance of lavender extract may also promote better sleep.
Finally, it is believed that drinking lavender tea and appreciating its scent may help lessen the discomforts of period pain.
Hibiscus flowers come in many colours. They can be red, yellow, white, or peach-coloured, and can be as big as 6 inches wide.
Hibiscus tea is made from a mixture of dried hibiscus flowers, leaves, and dark red calyces (the cup-shaped centres of the flowers). After the flower finishes blooming, the petals fall off and the calyces turn into pods. These hold the plant’s seeds. Calyces are often the main ingredients in herbal drinks containing hibiscus.
Hibiscus has been used by different cultures as a remedy for several conditions: the Egyptians used hibiscus tea to lower body temperature, treat heart and nerve diseases, and as a diuretic to increase urine production. In Africa, tea was used to treat constipation, cancer, liver disease, and cold symptoms. Pulp made from the leaves was applied to the skin to heal wounds.
Today we know Hibiscus tea is rich in powerful antioxidants and may therefore help prevent damage and disease caused by the build-up of free radicals which harm your cells and can lead to serious illness such as cancers, so perhaps our ancestors were right.
It is commonly thought that hibiscus tea can also help lower blood pressure; several studies have found that hibiscus tea may lower both systolic and diastolic blood pressure, potentially lowering the risk of heart disease.
In addition, there is some evidence that hibiscus tea might be able to support a healthy liver function, helping it to work effectively and also promote weight loss, while Hibiscus is high in polyphenols, which are compounds that have been shown to possess powerful anti-cancer properties.
