I am a lover of all things natural and that includes tea! I just love the ritual of drinking tea and the comfort it gives me. My absolute favorite tea is Peppermint tea, my mother put me on to it so it always reminds me of her :o)
So I was browsing vitacost.com for some teas and other things and I came across burdock root, horsetail, lemongrass and nettle teas and was like “heeeeeyyyy I know that stuff! I seen it on the labels in some of my favorite hair products!!” lol so I had an epiphany lol why don’t I try the teas and hope they do something for my hair and skin!!
*****DISCLAIMER!! I am no scientist or doctor and can’t make any health claims for anything I try so PLEASE do your own research before trying anything on yourself! ESPECIALLY if you are pregnant or nursing! Some herbal remedies are NOT meant for everyone so RESEARCH, RESEARCH, RESEARCH!
Now that that’s said…..here are the teas that I purchased from Vitacost. I am sure you can get them other places but I think Vitacost has the prices beat. I always drink tea with a spoonful of raw honey :o)
- Nettle Leaf — Alright tasting; its tolerable lol I can drink it alone with honey
- Horsetail Grass — Not the best tasting; I usually steep with peppermint to blend the flavor
- Burdock Root — see above lol
- Lemongrass (not pictured) — My fav of the bunch, tastes tart, lemony; really good with honey and lemon
Not sure how much of a difference these will make and I have to drink like 3-4 cups a day, so if there are any results, I probably won’t see them for awhile BUT I will keep drinking them. Tea in general has so many health benefits so if it’s not my hair and skin, hopefully something else in my body is benefiting :o)
I also noticed on vitacost that these herbs are also sold in pill supplement forms and extracts so perhaps I may try those after I drink up all my tea. If decide to not drink up all the tea, I can use them to make herbal rinses or mix with my ayurveda treatments so I’ll make use of these bad boys some how!
Hey, it’s just an experiment so I thought I would share :o)
