There’s no question that supporting a healthy immune system is an essential element of maintaining optimal health. Our immune system is greatly impacted and in essence, powered by the functions of every other system in our bodies, from our lungs, heart and stomach to muscle and bone. Considering this fact, it can be daunting to decide where to begin in supporting a healthy and responsive immune system. The good news is, because of this interconnectedness, any one choice you make for your health will have a positive impact on the strength of your immune system, from healthy diet and exercise to taking vitamins and herbal supplements.
So, with all of the innumerable options available, why choose tea? When it comes to supporting overall health and the immune system in particular, herbal teas are a wonderful choice. Similar to healthy foods, they work on a level that encompasses so much more of our sensory experience than a capsule or tablet can, appealing to our entire being in a more holistic way. Think of holding a warm cup in your hands, inhaling the fragrant steam, and delighting in a flavor. All of these positive responses give an immediate boost to your overall well-being, which combined with any specific functions of the herbs you’re drinking, can function as a double dose of strength for your immune system to fight off disease and infection.
Here at Merz Apothecary and Smallflower.com, we have formulated two unique herbal blends for immune system support with these holistic benefits in mind. Our Immunity Support Red is a delicious floral-berry-citrus blend packed with the antioxidant power of hibiscus, rosehip, lemongrass and orange peel, and enhanced with known cold and flu fighting elderflower, elderberry and warming ginger. Rose petals round-out the blend with their delicate and soothing aroma, promoting a spiritual and emotional sense of calm and well-being. It’s the perfect, uplifting daily tonic for the colder months and beyond, chasing away the chills and doldrums with some sunshine in a cup!
Our Immunity Support Green is a vibrant, verdant and herbaceous blend. Minty and aromatic with peppermint, rosemary and thyme, the Green blend targets clear and easy breathing, permeating the senses from head to toe with a tingling feeling of radiant health. It’s fortified by an Echinacea base with Astragalus root, helping to keep the entire immune system humming and happy.
These two Smallflower exclusive tea blends are now available in a bundle. This immune boosting pair will make a great addition to your daily routine, whether you’re an experienced tea collector or just starting out in the world of healthful herbs. The Immunity Support Tea Bundle includes one 4 oz canister of Immunity Support Red Blend, one 4 oz canister of Immunity Support Green Blend and a box of 100 Paper Tea Filters from Finum.
We highly recommend incorporating these two immune boosting teas into your daily wellness routine - one in the morning, and the other at night - to enjoy the peace of mind and warm feelings of overall well-being that herbal teas can bring!
