Tea Time: Chill Out

*In Tea Time, Owl's Brew provides information about various teas & botanicals, and how you can incorporate these into your wellness routine**

It's been over a month for many of us (and many of you!) in Quarantine, and we don't know about you, but we're all starting to feel a little anxious. Not to mention the stress and heartache surrounding the pandemic and the unknown.


So, for this Tea Time, we asked Jennie to give us some teas & botanicals to help us chill out, relax a bit and maybe catch some zzzs.

As before, all of the teas and tisanes listed here should be easily found at your local grocery store or online (we'll link to some as well).

Peppermint

Peppermint has been used for centuries for a variety of ailments, and for general wellness.


Peppermint may help to relieve stress headaches and ease upset stomachs as well. The menthol is a natural muscle relaxant, which can be very helpful during a stressful time! Not to mention, it smells delicious. It's also caffeine free, so perfect to snuggle up with before bed.


How to Enjoy

Brew yourself up a cup. It's delicious hot or cold. There are lots of options available at the grocery store or on online. Try this one. We'd also suggest a drop of honey or a squeeze of lemon!



Lavender Flowers

Lavender is probably one of the most widely used botanicals. It's beautiful purple flowers are used in everything from skin care to soap, and it's famous for it's calming properties.
