If you are looking for a little rest and relaxation then there’s nothing like a nice cup of tea to help you unwind. Chamomile will have you in the land of nod in no time! Chamomile has a calming effect to help your body rest, relax and heal. Chamomile’s soothing floral and honey aroma is a great way to unwind before bedtime... A good night's sleep will do you the world of good. Top Tip: Add a little honey, lemon and ginger to help soothe a cough.
Next we are looking at a cup of Green tea - this one is packed with antioxidants and vitamin C, Green Tea Lemon is a well loved flavour combo, a classic tea to ward off any callous cold and help boost your natural defences. For an added antibacterial boost (and a little sweetness) why not add a spoonful of honey, another great way to soothe a sore throat.
