#445 – Earl Grey Tea

auntie stress tea time

I used to brew up a pot of Earl Grey Tea whenever I had a particularly tough day teaching. I have since learned about the medicinal properties of bergamot, the herb that gives Earl Grey Tea that distinctive aroma and flavour.

My body instinctively knew what I needed to help steam off the detritus of the day. Back then I didn't have the stress undressing techniques I now have.

Bergamot is known to help with:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • indigestion
  • infections
  • inflammation
  • insomnia
  • parasites
  • stress

In the world of aromatherapy, it is purported to help release the need to be in total control, allowing you to flow with the rhythm of life. Not a bad thing to do, especially if you live with a chronic illness.

    1. The trick is to get tea that is flavoured naturally. So many products now use artificial flavouring, it’s hard to find the real McCoy, or in this case, the real Earl Grey. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by for a visit.

      Maybe one day we can share a cuppa’.
