Summer and colds should not go together. But unfortunately, colds just don’t come in the winter. Right now I am going through a series of different wellness regimens to get through a bad cold. This cold has been going through our family one by one and since we have such a big family, it has the potential to circle back around to the first person. Fortunately, my littlest blessing has been spared (nursing pays off!!!). My sweet friend at Figuring It Out Mommy asked me for my wellness tea recipe, so I thought I would share it with you. This is one of my favorite tea blends for giving my wellness a boost.
I discovered Rooibus tea over 10 years ago when my husband and I attended a wedding in S. Africa. It was before Rooibus tea hit the shelves in the U.S.A. I packed my suitcase with boxes of them and shared them with those close to me who were ill. When I read up on all the health benefits of Rooibus tea, I made sure I had some in stock in my cabinets at all times.
Rooibus tea is grown in S. Africa. It is caffeine free, high in antioxidants, helps relieve stress, contains calcium, fluoride and manganese for bone health, promotes cardiovascular health, helps with diabetes, promotes healthy skin and so much more (Learn more here and here).
Thieves Vitality Essential Oil
Thieves essential oil is a popular blend known for supporting a healthy immune system. It contains a blend of oils including clove and cinnamon. Additionally, this blend includes Eucalyptus Radiata which may also help support a healthy respiratory system.
Lemon Vitality Essential Oil
Lemons are packed with health benefits including Vitamin C which is a good immune booster. Lemons also help to relieve respiratory and breathing problems and much more. I like to use Lemon essential oil in my wellness blend because Young Living makes a PURE, powerful, flavorful lemon essential oil that I absolutely LOVE. It takes 75 lemons to make one 15ml bottle of Young Living essential oil! WOW!
So when I need an immune boost, I get pumped with my wellness tea blend combining the health benefits of Rooibus tea, Thieves vitality essential oil blend and Lemon vitality essential oil. After all, mommy doesn’t have time to be sick!
This blend is also good to have daily to help maintain a healthy immune system. So if you happen to get sick, this may help your body’s natural ability to fight it off quicker! enJOY!
