Teas for reducing stress and anxiety

One of my “things” that I do to help my body reduce stress and anxiety is that I drink teas, I also drink teas to help reduce inflammation, help with sleep, and with pain. Teas as I have talked about before are an amazing way to boost your health and promote healing. But that is not all they can do 😉 No, teas are a wonderful addition for any herbalist and for practices with divination, healing, and centering. The possibilities are endless with a good tea. I do make some teas that we offer to people, but only by request these days. However, I thought that I might take a moment and share some recipes with you, that you can add into your own practice or just your kitchen.

This glass tea pot is amazing by the way! I have one that I use when I want to make more than one cup at a time. It is perfect for cold days, or days when everyone else wants a cup of what ever I am making that morning.

I can not recommend this tea pot enough. I love it for blooming teas and loose leaf brewing.

Keep in mind for teas like this you are working with loose leaf ingredients for the most part so you might need a pot like the one above or you might want to invest in getting some infusers, if you do not already have some. There are a ton on Amazon, I actually have my eye on a few now. I can never have enough infusers.

These infusers are so darn cute, I actually have them on my wish list for yule.

For those who are really into teas you can also look into getting tea pets, to help with that first initial brew pour. I will be making another post here soon about how to brew that perfect cup of tea. It can be more complicated than one might think, and for those who are not tea enthusiasts, this may actually change your mind on how you view teas.

The cutest grumpy tea pet ever!!
