After a long day sitting down with a nice cup of tea can be relaxing. Drinking a tea that is designed to help you relax is even better.

How to make relaxation tea

My husband loves to drink tea so I started making our own tea blends for us to enjoy. Every tea I make serves a purpose. Since he works in retail and I’m just all around a stressed out person, we both needed a tea that was enjoyable and relaxing. Stress can seriously affect the body and sometimes we just need a little help.

He prefers hot tea and I prefer cold. This tea does well both hot and cold but it should be brewed hot. If you’re not a huge fan of chamomile I would decrease the amount of chamomile and increase the lavender. It has such a wonderful floral scent and a beautiful golden color.

You just need four easy and common ingredients to make this tea yourself.

RELAXATION TEA INGRED

German Chamomile- Mild sedative, anti-inflammatory, and muscle relaxant.

Lavender- Has natural sedative properties and is a relaxant.

Catnip- Has a calming and stress reducing effect. Helps calm the stomach as well.

Rose Hips- High in vitamin C. Helps boost your immune system, heals and improves the body.
