What's in it?
Lemon Verbena leaves
Research has connected lemon verbena to lower oxidative stress levels, evidenced by a decisive increase in white blood cells, our immune system’s first line of defence. This can not only improve cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of developing type-2 diabetes, but also supports skin health.
One of nature’s richest sources of vitamin C, which we know is vital for collagen production and skin cell renewal, Rosehips also contain many important antioxidants – plant chemicals that are naturally anti-inflammatory. It contains loads of Vitamin A which is considered beneficial for the skin by keeping the skin elastic, preventing wrinkles and minimising the flaws of the skin.
Liquorice is less commonly known, but can help with collagen production and skin elasticity, with amino acids that help hydrate and moisturise the skin. Glycyrrhizin, glabridin, and liquiritin, the three active compounds found in liquorice root, all yield strong anti-inflammatory properties that help with everything from eczema to hyper-pigmentation. This is also a great tea to have before or after you’ve been in the sun.
Peppermint tea is not only a great tea for digestion, but the menthol in it helps to slow down oil production in the skin, which is helpful for anyone with oily, acne prone skin. Compounds like vitamin E and D in peppermint tea also increase cell turnover, which helps us to shed the outer layers of dead skin cells, leaving us with that coveted glow.

Whole leaves take longer to infuse but it is definitively worth it!
For best results, drink regularly.
You may get some residue at the bottom of your cup, which is perfectly fine to drink and even recommended but if you don't like it try our of our bio tea bags! This way most of the powder will get strained.
Crush or grind the herbs prior to use.
Make sure that all ingredients are well mixed. Lighter particles and powders tend to sink at the bottom of the packet.
Do not leave herbs to steep in water as this may result in a slightly bitter infusion.
Herbs are powerful on their own but their magic also works synergistically - meaning that combined they can be even more powerful.
