GINGER | TÈ TEA

Dylan Demarchi

ZINGIBER OFFICINALE

Ginger is a herbaceous perennial indigenous to the tropical rainforests of Southern Asia. The tuberous rhizome is a common spice in the kitchen both fresh and in dried form.

In Traditional Chinese medicine fresh ginger is used to treat chills, fevers, coughs and the common cold, whereas the dried form is preferred for the treatment of stomach pain (of digestive or menstrual origin), nausea, diarrhea and rheumatism aggravated by damp wether.

In Aromatherapy, the essential oil of Zingiber officinale is used to dispel the discomfort of indigestion, travel nausea and morning sickness.

The warming and drying properties of the essential oil also help to dispel internal mucous and aid relief to symptoms of catarrh. Ginger is a comforting and effective remedy for conditions of cold and chills particularly affecting the lungs and respiratory system. Applied as a compress or used in low dilutions in massage oil blends, ginger brings warmth and relief to rheumatic and muscular pain and sports injuries.

The oil of ginger can be used as a gargle to relieve sore throats by adding 2 drops of oil to 5mls of vodka and diluting in warm water. To alleviate gum inflammation equal parts of ginger, calendula and rosemary can be blended in alcohol and water to also be used as a mouthwash.

Ginger, when consumed as a fresh plant extract or rhizome infusion improves circulation and is especially useful in the treatment of inflammation. Abnormal tissue inflammation occurs when an excess of prostaglandins, cytokines and CO2 enzymes are released from tissue cells. Ginger is a potent inhibitor in the release of these molecules.

Ginger is a very a useful remedy for a variety of gastro intestinal conditions, from flatulence to colic, and has recently been investigated in the treatment of helicobacter pylori, a bacteria which once established causes a range of problems including indigestion, oesophagitis, gastritis, stomach and duodenal ulcers and stomach cancer.

PLEASE NOTE; Ginger is not recommended for individuals suffering peptic ulcers or while using blood thinning medication.

Keep warm and enjoy this versatile aromatic spice in our Mirto, and Chai TE` blends.

                                       CYCLOPIA

                                     CYCLOPIA



Botanical name :Cyclopia spp.

Honeybush is indigenous to South Africa, taking its name from the bright yellow flowers with a distinctive honey scent. The tea is naturally sweet, low in tannins and free from caffeine.

Honeybush has been consumed for centuries both as a refreshing beverage and as a folk remedy for treating coughs and infections of the upper respiratory tract.

Recent scientific analysis supports the traditional use of Honeybush as a health beverage. Substantial amounts of (+)- Pinitol found in Honeybush leaves make it an excellent expectorant useful in the treatment of coughs.

Studies on Pinitol have also demonstrated that it has a blood sugar lowering effect.

 The antioxidant content of Honeybush helps to lower blood lipid levels.

Phytoestrogens such as isoflavones and coumestones are useful in the treatment of menopause and the prevention of related symptoms such as osteoporosis and heart disease.

A natural source of major phenolic compounds in Honeybush tea help to prevent infection and chronic ill health by down regulating the body’s inflammatory response and protecting the immune system from oxidative stress that could lead to cell damage. Phenolic compounds exhibit antiviral, antimicrobial, antifungal and antiallergenic properties that help modulate the immune system and strengthen the body’s defenses against infections.

A rich source of essential mineral salts in the tea leaves help to control the body’s chemical balance and maintain an ideal state of physical equilibrium and wellbeing.

These include Sodium and potassium for fluid and acid balance and to aid healthy digestive function, Calcium for strong teeth and bones. Manganese to aid bone development, along with Magnesium and Phosphorus for a healthy nervous and glandular system. The leaves also contain Iron and Copper essential for the transport of oxygen to tissues through the bloodstream.

                    LAVANDULA AUGUSTIFOLIA

LAVENDER is best known for its fragrance and was initially grown solely for the extraction of the essential oil to be employed in perfumery. Lavender had long been recognised as an antiseptic and for its mild sedative properties, with its genus name coming from the Latin lavare, to wash, and has been used as a bath additive and as an antiseptic in sick rooms since ancient times.

In the First World War lavender was used as an antiseptic for the swabbing of wounds.

Lavender essential oil is steam distilled from the flowers. It consists mainly of linalyl acetate and linalool, phenolic compounds and flavanoids.

In 16th century England, the spicy smelling flowers were quilted into hats to relieve head pain.

Herbalists prescribe the essential oil of lavender flowers to ease tension, prevent vertigo and fainting, for gastric disturbances characterised by flatulence, and in tonic embrocation’s to counteract rheumatic pain.

Many horticultural varieties of lavender were developed in the 18th and 19th centuries. Lavandula augustifolia is used in Western herbal medicine for it’s therapeutic properties.

Recent pharmacological studies linking the effect of aromatherapy with the emotion indicate that Inhaling lavender oil evokes “happiness”, relaxed feelings and relieves depression.

Lavender flowers are traditionally used in infusions and liquid extracts to treat insomnia, nervous tension, and abdominal complaints such as nervous stomach irritations, flatulence, colic and dyspepsia.

Lavender oil can be used topically to relieve neuralgic pain, as an astringent for minor burns, cuts and bruises, to counteract the allergic reaction of insect bites, and (heated) to rub on strained muscles.

In Chinese herbal medicine, the properties of lavender (Xun Yi Cao) are described as pungent and cool. It is used to clear heat and remove toxicity, expel wind and relieve itching. 

Lavender is also used in Ayurvedic massage to balance the Doshas. 

In Ayurveda the Doshas refer to the dynamic forces in nature that are constantly changing.

They express the unique blend of physical, emotional and mental characteristics that make up each individual. Ayurvedic medicine defines good health by the state of harmony and the maintenance of balance of our Doshas.
