Ingredients & Benefits:
Organic Frankincense Tears / Boswellia
Frankincense tears are the resin from the Boswellia tree. We put this ingredient first in this tea because of its anti-inflammatory effects. The pain from swollen joints, or swollen parts of your intestines can be alleviated by frankincense tears.
Organic Red Rooibos
Oxidized leaves from a South African shrub make up red rooibos tea. Because this red tea is caffeine-free, you can enjoy it any time of day. Rooibos tea is earthy and sweet, and the red coloring makes the tea a full sensory experience. Antioxidants from polyphenols called aspalathin make red rooibos a great way to support a healthy cardiovascular system as well as healthy blood sugar levels. Rooibos is a natural “anti-spasomatic,” which is said to be good for colic and is often used in cosmetics due to its calming properties.
Organic Orange Peel
With their bright, fresh, citrus flavor, orange peels are a lovely addition to your morning brew. Not only are they flavorful, but orange peels are high in vitamin C and plant compounds called polyphenols. Both are great for maintaining a healthy immune system, as well as nourishing the body.
Organic White Willow Bark
Willow tree (yes, the kind in your backyard) bark is “nature’s aspirin.” It’s been used as a pain-reliever for centuries and can be used as an alternative to the pills in your medicine cabinet.
With ancient Indian roots, turmeric has been used as a spice and medicinal herb for thousands of years. In our immunity tea blend, turmeric plays an important role in providing damage control for your cells, and has anti-inflammatory effects. Turmeric is an adaptogen, and is also great for maintaining a healthy immune system. You’ll taste the spicy notes of turmeric and the end of your sip—which will just entice you to take more.
Lavender flowers from the lavender plant are a wonderful addition to this tea. Not only because it smells so nice, but because lavender is known to calm nerves and improve sleep. Lavender may also soothe menstrual cramping and may also improve skin health.
Cardamom is a spice originally grown in India. It’s popularity, however, has since grown to include the entire world. Its intense, sweet flavor has been used as a flavoring additive in cooking, but its medicinal properties are what make it special. Cardamom is antioxidant-rich, which is great for supporting healthy blood-pressure levels and overall wellness. It’s also long been used as a diuretic, which can release any buildup of toxins in your urinary tract. Cardamom is also good for gut health, and may alleviate bad breath.
Organic Compliant Citrus Flavor
This tea has a lot of flavorful ingredients that work well together. The resinous, spicy taste of the frankincense is balanced well with other spices like turmeric and cardamom. You’ll also get hints of citrus and lavender.
