Ten teas for better peace of mind and stronger mental health
As summer comes to a close and we head into the cooler seasons, we may start to experience some seasonal blues. We here at Catalyst Tea Company believe that mental well-being is just as important as physical health. So, this week we'll be taking a look at the top ten teas that may help ease your mind.
The calming attributes of lavender are what the herb is best known for. Lavender can naturally calm down the nervous system by lowering your blood pressure. It's also a great anxiety deterrent, a natural sedative, and may even help to stave off depression.
Lemon Balm & Chamomile
When combined with other herbs with calming attributes such as chamomile, lemon balm can help to settle the nervous system to help you sleep. It is also a great stress releaser and anxiety reducer.
Green Tea & Tumeric
If you're looking for a little boost to your mood, you may consider green tea or turmeric. While green tea can help raise your energy levels and improve memory function, turmeric nudges the brain to release dopamine and serotonin.
Saffron & Peppermint
If you're looking for the same effect as turmeric, but don't necessarily care for the taste, try using some saffron in a brew. The herb also urges the brain to release serotonin, which helps to bring on feelings of happiness. The menthol found in peppermint also works as a natural stress reliever.
Ginger is a great disease fighter that helps to fight against a myriad of ailments. It's especially handy for women during that time of the month, as it can greatly reduce cramping pain, and improve blood sugar levels.
Passion Flower Tea & Hibiscus Tea
Not as commonly known as lavender, but just as effective when it comes to relieving stress and improving sleep, passion flower is a major asset to those who suffer from anxiety.
Hibiscus, on the other hand, can help to reduce stress by lowering high blood pressure and decreasing oxidative stress.
