Iced Tea for Adrenal Support

Craft Your Own Iced Tea For Adrenal Support

By | Adrenal Fatigue, Blog, Drinks, Recipes | No Comments

Iced tea became wildly popular at the 1904 worlds fair in St Louis. It was so hot, the fair-goers wanted nothing to do with hot drinks and went in search of cold drinks. It’s still a popular way to cool down and enjoy yourself when the temperature makes you melt! Stress is common in the summer months; there’s so much going on and adrenal support needs to be a part of your self care at this time.

Summer Hibiscus Punch

By | Blog, Elixirs | One Comment

This elixir recipe is one of my summer time staples. Hibiscus flowers are an incredibly nourishing herb for women’s hormonal and blood health.

We can use the doctrine of colour signatures to determine that the blood red colour of hibiscus tea indicates that it’s incredibly beneficial and nourishing for the blood, heart and circulatory system.

Here’s why:

Hibiscus tea is Blood Building & amp;High in Vitamin C -The high vitamin c content of hibiscus helps to build iron levels in the blood and can contribute to naturally increasing progesterone
Hibiscus tea Lowers Blood Pressure & supports Heart Health – one of the reasons it’s good for the heart is because it prevents cholesterol deposits in the blood.

I recommend women drink hibiscus tea during and after their moontime (period) which is a great time to harness the blood building properties of this herb. Women who have symptoms of anemia, low progesterone, immune issues or high blood pressure can also benefit from drinking the tea daily. However this drink can be enjoyed by anyone who wants a healthy summertime tonic that the whole family can enjoy.

How to make hibiscus tea

**you don’t need to heat the water to make hibiscus tea! Cold water will do!
