Curing tea might be a little bit of an exaggeration, however, the teas within this article have pretty strong curing traits for when you are experiencing a cold, stomach aches, PMS, and can also help calm and soothe for when you are feeling stressed or anxious. I’d say, that sounds actually perfect for when you go off to college this year. With everything being so hectic this year, it is nice to know there is something out there that might be able to cure us.
Instead of reaching for the medicine when you start to feel off, try a natural curing tea that can be a tasty beverage. And I have only listed ten. There are a lot more herbal teas out there that are supposed to help with a multitude of diseases, mental health, and overall physical health. I also tried to get the ones that will taste good with some added honey.
1. Chamomile Tea
Chamomile tea is a great soothing curing tea. It is suggested to drink this tea whenever you might have an upset stomach. It is also great for nausea, diarrhea, and cramps. And like I said, this is a great soothing tea, so whenever you start to feel flustered or anxious, drink this tea to help.
If you haven’t been to college yet, you will surely experience late nights working on homework, studying for a test, or maybe you just can’t go to sleep. Chamomile tea is the recommended tea to take to help you get to sleep.
2. Orange Peel Tea
Oranges are full of vitamins and nutrients that we need, which is a kind of common knowledge, but who knew the peel was actually good for you too? This curing tea contains pectin which improves the digestive system. The pectin also fights off acidity and heartburn.
If you have trouble with your blood sugar, this curing tea helps with maintaining a healthy blood sugar level due to that pectin. Like I said above, oranges give us a lot of vitamins like vitamin C which is a very important vitamin when it comes to keeping a healthy immune system. With that being said, it will be easier to fight off the cold if you drink a cup of this tea every night before bed.
3. Ginger Tea
Ginger tea is another curing tea that has loads of vitamin C in it. This year is especially crucial for us to keep our immune systems working great. This curing tea is recommended to help with pain relief. It is used to help with inflammation, headaches, menstrual cramps, and sore muscles.
If you start feeling like you might have a cold, just the steam from this tea is said to help with nasal congestion and other respiratory symptoms. Ginger is overall super awesome for your overall health. It is great to have at the end of any stressful day.
4. Peppermint Tea
My dad always told me that chewing peppermint gum would help relieve an upset stomach. It helped only half of the time. But peppermint tea seems to be the real deal. This curing tea works wonders and is usually my go-to. Whenever I start to feel overwhelmingly anxious, I drink peppermint to help. It is also another curing tea that can help you fall asleep at night.
Peppermint tea is also said to be great for when you are looking to lose weight. Drinking this peppermint tea will leave you full for a longer time so that you are not looking to snack throughout the day.
5. Green Tea
Just like the peppermint tea, if you are looking to lose weight, green tea is your curing tea. Green tea has so many benefits, but the one thing I have always seen when it came to green tea was weight loss. I read that after eating dinner, only drink green tea for the rest of the night to boost your digestive system.
This tea is not just for fat burning though. There are so many theories that this tea can cure just about anything. It has said that this curing tea might be able to prevent type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and so much more!
6. Lemon Balm Tea
Herbal teas seem to be the work of magic, but it is just Mother Nature looking after us with these curing teas. Lemon balm tea, like many of the other teas in this article, helps with stress and anxiety. College produces a lot of both of those things so any help we can get during these next couple of months is greatly appreciated.
Lemon balm tea is said to help with cold sores. I had cold sores as a baby when my grandma kissed my cheek as she didn’t realize she had one. I usually get one every two years, but whenever I start to get extremely stressed, one seems to pop up. I haven’t tried lemon balm for them yet, but the next one I get, I am drinking this tea day and night.
7. Cinnamon Tea
Cinnamon, and a few other of the teas on this list, are rich with antioxidants which helps fight oxidation that is caused by molecules called free radicals that harm your cells and contribute to a list of diseases. Cinnamon, which can be ingested in a lot of other ways but most fully in tea, helps in lowering inflammation.
Cinnamon is also great for when you start to PMS helping with cramps and may even help with the your menstrual flow. This is another curing tea that helps with maintaining healthy blood sugar levels.
8. Stinging Nettle Tea
Allergies always hit me hard in the spring. They have gotten worse as I have gotten older. This year has been the first year I have ever had really bad allergy attacks. Stinging nettle tea is a curing tea that helps flush out toxins. This curing tea can help flush out the toxins in your kidneys and bladder to help get rid of a UTI.
If you are interested in this herbal curing tea, I suggest looking up what part of the plant to use when making the tea as both the root and leaves can be used for different issues you might be experiencing.
9. Raspberry Leaf Tea
I am not sure if any of you are looking to have a baby any time soon, but if you are, the raspberry leaf tea is best to drink while you are pregnant as it helps ready you for childbirth. But, if you are not looking for that side of this tea, then let me tell you some of the other benefits.
This curing tea helps improve your digestive system. Raspberry leaf tea has anti-inflammatory properties within it helping with sore stomachs and constipation. Because of those anti-inflammatory properties, this curing tea also helps with headaches and fevers.
10. Lavender Tea
Lavender tea is best known for its soothing components, however, it helps with a lot more than that. Lavender tea is another curing tea that aids in inflammation helping with stomach aches, headaches, nausea, and so on. It is said to be another pain-relieving tea. Lavender tea can also be just a yummy beverage to have on those cold fall nights with some added honey. Mmm, enjoy!
