There are so many benefits to drinking just traditional earl grey tea, but when you add lavender to the mix to create lavender earl grey tea, you get a few added benefits that take the tea to the next level. Here at Pyramid Tea Co, we’re huge fans of lavender in anything, so we adore our lavender cream earl grey tea. On top of the long list of health benefits earl grey has to offer, here are a few benefits of the added lavender.
1. HELPS YOU SLEEP BETTER
Lavender is renowned for its sleepy qualities, with many people using lavender oils, incense, and candles to help them get a better night’s sleep. Lavender earl grey tea is the perfect antidote for insomniacs; just curl up with a lavender earl grey tea bag in your cup, a book in hand, and the lights dimmed. You’ll be asleep in no time.
2. REMOVES STRESS
If you suffer from anxiety, depression, chronic stress, or fatigue, lavender will help to relax your mind and body and wind down. Studies suggest the scent of lavender stimulates activity in some regions of the brain and influences transmission of impulses between brain cells to create a calming effect. Just the smell of your lavender earl grey tea alone will boost your mood and calm your mind; then you can reap all the benefits associated with drinking a hot cup of earl grey.
3. IMPROVES YOUR SKIN
Lavender oil has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, making it terrific for helping to fight eczema, psoriasis, open wounds, and acne. Not only could your lavender earl grey tea promotes skin healing and health, but it also encourages collagen formation.
