Handy herbal teas for winter colds and flu

While there is still no cure for the coughs, the sniffles, sore throats and aches and pains of a cold or flu, tea has long been known to ease the symptoms in a gentle, pleasing and natural way. Herbal tea particularly has numerous beneficial ingredients to both soothe and abate the symptoms of cold and flu as well as delivering health benefits in general.

The soothing qualities of camomile

Always handy for its calming influences, camomile also contains an active ingredient – Chamazulene – that is an effective antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agent. Besides being a very pretty plant belonging to the daisy family, Camomile tea has long been used, as a natural remedy, for a wide range of health issues. Nowadays, researchers are increasingly exploring and supporting camomile’s effectiveness in managing stress levels, illnesses; including cancer and diabetes.

The refreshing natural remedy, Peppermint

Of all the healthy herbal infusions in the world, peppermint tea is one of the most respected beverages for its associated health benefits. A delicious and soothing brew, peppermint tea is commonly recommended as a treatment or general health tonic with diverse benefits for the body and mind. While the minty flavour of peppermint revives the senses, peppermint’s antibacterial and antiviral properties are handy for fighting off winter colds and flu. It can also soothe muscle aches, alleviate coughs (being antispasmodic) and opens nasal passageways.
