People have been drinking herbal teas for their healing properties for as long as we have known how to heat water. Considering the anatomy and physiology of our body, herbal teas make perfect sense as the drink of choice, not only for their diverse therapeutic benefits but also for helping to improve our daily water consumption. The human body is composed of more that 60% water. Blood is approximately 92% water, the brain and muscles are approximately 75% water and bones approximately 22% water. Rather important that we drink an adequate amount of water each day don’t you think!
After finally kicking my daily coffee habit I have become rather addicted to herbal teas. Naturally I am biased toward my own range of Be Genk Herbal Teas that are a complex blend of herbs and flowers to help target specific feelings, and complement the Be Genki range of bath and body care products, however any good quality herbal tea is a far superior choice to coffee, soft drinks, cordial, bottled juices and vitamin waters that are full of sugar and artificial additives.
Be Genki herbal teas help to promote a glowing complexion as well as helping to improve an emotional aspect, whether that be helping to: improve energy levels, calm in times of stress, promote a peaceful night’s sleep or as a gentle aphrodisiac to help nurture the loving relationship we have with ourselves and others.
Be Genki Herbal Teas contain no artificial colours, preservatives, caffeine, gluten, sugars or lactose.
Be Genki Vitality Herbal Tea is a great alternative to your early morning or mid afternoon cup of coffee. The energising blend of rosemary, yarrow, gingko, peppermint and schisandra are reputed to aid poor circulation, and enhance concentration, reflexes and mental activity.
When I’ve had a challenging or stressful day I head home, add a few drops of Serenity Oil Blend to the oil burner and brew a pot of Be Genki Serentiy Herbal Tea. The soothing blend of chamomile, st john’s wort, licorice, lavender and lime flowers are reputed to ease nervousness and calm jittery tummies. St. John’s Wort is also widely recognized for the treatment of mild depression and anxiety.
The Be Genki Sensuality Herbal Tea has become a favourite to sip on once a week when I create a spa experience in the comfort of my own home with the Sensuality Oil Blend burning in the oil burner and relaxing in a bath filled with warm water and Sensuality Bath and Shower Oil. The blend of hibiscus, passion, jasmine and rose flowers is sweet and aromatic, whilst also having subtle aphrodisiac qualities.
For those nights when I’m aware that it may be a challenge to fall asleep, about an hour before I head in to the bedroom I add a few drops of Tranquility Oil Blend to the oil burner in the bedroom, moisturize my body with Tranquility Body Oil and relax on the couch with a cup of Be Genki Tranquility Herbal Tea. The calming blend of chamomile, fennel, passion flower, lime flower and vervain are renowned for preparing the body for a restful sleep.
Best wishes for a more holistically happy and healthy, herbal-tea-drinking you.
