LAVENDER HERBAL TEA 2oz
The Lavender Caffeine Free Herbal Tea blend from English Tea Store is French lavender from Provence with an agreeable floral flavor. It can be mixed with other teas to add a distinctive aroma and taste. It also has many other uses.
Herbalists recommend lavender to treat migraines, ease digestive spasms, and for certain respiratory problems. Lavender is also used for soothing the nervous system, used as a local anesthetic, and can be applied as a compress directly on a cut, bruise or sprain. To make a lavender concoction boil 3 tablespoons of flowers in 1 liter(or quart) for 10 minutes. For bee stings, soak a teaspoon of petals in a sachet in very hot water and then apply to the sting to help ease the pain and swelling.
Lavender is often used to make a bath a pure aromatic delight. The practice of using it in bathes dates to ancient Rome where lavender was so prized that few of the aristocracy considered bathing without it. Proof of this can be found in the root of lavenders names: In Latin, lavare means "to wash". To make a nice vinegar-bases cleansing lotion to sweeten up bathwater and use as a hair rinse after shampooing, soak 1/2 cup of lavender in 1 quart of cider vinegar and allow to "brew" for 1 week.
Lavender has also been used as a natural pesticide. Rubbing the wood of cabinets and cupboards with the essential oil keeps mites and flies away. The dried flowers can also be placed in a cloth sachet and hung in wardrobes and linen closets to keep insects and mites at bay.
Lavender is very light, and so 2 ounces fills the same size bag as 4 ounces of tea.
