Lovely Lavender

Lovely Lavender

Lavender has to be one of the most touted herbal remedies for stress. It's soothing aroma and healing properties make it a valuable addition to your natural remedy routine. At Fangboner Farms, we've added lavender to many of our products, including our lemon balm/mint/lavender tea blend and, one of our more recent additions, our butterfly pea flower/lemongrass/lavender blend

Along with its stress reducing qualities, lavender is also anti-inflammatory and anti-fungal. It's even a deterrent for hair loss, a source of Vitamins A, C, and K, plus calcium and iron. 

"With all the current issues surrounding us today - from the pandemic and social issues to politics and personal relationships - lavender tea is a great way to relieve anxiety, depression, stress, and other mood disorders," says Dr. Kristal. "It can also improve sleep, menstrual cramps, and your immune system."

 

Reasons to Choose Raspberry

Reasons to Choose Raspberry

One of our very favorite fruits to add to our tea blends is the small-but-mighty raspberry, and we use their leaves to add any extra healthy punch. Dr. Kristal says that raspberry leaves are a wonderful choice to maintain a healthy lifestyle, and what better way to enjoy it than with a cup of herbal tea?

"Raspberry leaves are perfect for all things concerning women," she adds. "It tones and strengthens the uterus while tightening the pelvic wall. Research supports the use of raspberry tea to support PMS symptoms and decrease the nausea and vomiting associated with pregnancy."

As always, if you are pregnant, consult your practitioner about the use of herbal supplements and teas. 

You'll find raspberry in two of our tea blends: raspberry/spearmint/strawberry and raspberry/lemongrass/chamomile/lime.  Order yours today or stop by our General Store for a sample! Health benefits aside, you might also indulge in a slice of Grandma's Lemon Loaf with one of these teas. It's a wonderful pairing, especially if you are trying to treat your family to something special during the holidays.

A Cup of Chamomile= A Cup of Calm

A Cup of Chamomile= A Cup of Calm

If you’re like us, you think of fall as a time to unwind. What better way to do that than to enjoy a cup of chamomile tea? Chamomile, our herb of the week, is so much more than a relaxation agent (it contains apigenin, an antioxidant that helps promote sleep). Its benefits are far reaching for your digestive system, your liver, and so much more.

“A human research study demonstrated that chamomile tea may reduce postpartum depression and improve insomnia and boredom,” says Dr. Kristal, adding that the herb also has antidiabetic effects, can stop diarrhea, and can inhibit harmful bacteria from growing in the stomach. 

Another pro tip from the doctor: “Several studies suggest consuming a cup of chamomile with meals to help lower blood sugar levels. Chamomile tea may be beneficial in preventing spikes in blood sugar while also preventing damage to pancreatic cells when blood sugar levels are chronically elevated.”

So enjoy your next meal with a cup of our healthy and relaxing chamomile/mint, chamomile/lemongrass/pear, or raspberry/lemongrass/chamomile/lime. So many flavors. So many health benefits.
