Rooibos to the Rescue: Allergy Edition

If you’ve ever been to the Tealish Tea Boutique, you know that we LOVE rooibos! It’s caffeine-free, tastes great and – with an ever expanding collection of studies pointing toward its VERY positive health benefits – we feel that drinking rooibos should become a daily ritual for just about anyone.

A recent study on the antioxidant capacity of rooibos proved that this tea is packed full, containing levels that we thought only green tea could offer. So many of our customers ask us about the many healing powers of rooibos that we’ve decided to take a more in-depth look at its health benefits, including its use as a digestive aid, powerful hydrator and so much more…

This is the first installment in a series we call Rooibos To The Rescue.

Drinking rooibos tea can help allergy sufferers.

Drinking rooibos tea can help allergy sufferers.

Rooibos is a must-have for illness prevention in every season and spring time is no exception! With a score of anti-inflammatory properties that have the ability to reduce our body’s histamine release and allergy response, no allergy sufferer should be without rooibos this spring.

Not only does rooibos heal from the inside out, preventing swelling and itching, but it can also be applied to the skin for instant relief. Itchy eyes can be soothed instantly with a cool, moist bag of rooibos. Put a small amount of rooibos in a paper, cotton, or silk tea filter, dip it in water and you’ve got a fool-proof solution to skin and eye irritation.  This is especially helpful for those of us suffering from hay fever!

Spring brings the good and the bad. With fresh flowers and grass popping up everywhere, prepare yourself by drinking a few cups of rooibos each day. And keep a look-out for our next installment on the wonder-tea that is Rooibos!
