Health benefits...

My mum calls this one “spa tea” because there is something so spoiling and comforting about its fragrance. It is great for relaxation – I often make it in the evening to wind down from the day. Lavender, peppermint and eucalyptus have anti-anxiety, stress reducing qualities. They are cooling and calming on the nervous system, as well as supporting the immune system and detoxifying. Cardamom and fennel contribute to this freshness and both have tridosic balancing qualities. They are excellent for soothing the mind and body, and promoting a greater sense of clarity. A comforting warmth is provided by the cinnamon, ginger, and peppercorns, which support digestive fire and increase circulation.
