Tea time at Balbec: Skin Teas

Delicious and cute: Fresh mint tea at Les p'tites indécises


Go-to teas that I carry with me so I can have tea all day (and sometimes just hot water). I love the taste of these teas, their health benefits and the fact that they are particularly good for the skin. Few places have these teas on their menus, so you might have to keep a few on hand to spike your hot water. 

**Licorice Root Tea

We'll start with the sweetest harmonizer. 

Perfect because it is:  *anti-inflammatory, *immune boosting, *regulates cortisol, *adaptogenic, *possibly helpful for a leaky gut. 

**Dandelion Tea

is a little bitter, but I find it addictive and I don't add a sweetener, although with honey it would be good too.

Helpful because it is:  *detoxifying for the liver, *antioxidant, *helps regulate blood sugar levels (which very important in managing acne breakouts). Saturn's tea.  Masters Time. 

 **Nettle Tea

*detoxifying, *anti-inflammatory ,*rich in vitamins: A, B, C, D & K,  & helpful for hormonal balance, contains silica, & also beneficial for hair  and nails. Eneregetic release of that which no longer serves. 

**Fennel Tea

Fennel, yum.  I love it in every form, from fresh in salads to cold water flavored with its seeds. It is a beautiful digestive and a delicious tea especially after a meal.

It is perfect because it is:  *anti-oxidant, *digestive, *rich in minerals that are important for healthy skin including: selenium, potassium, zinc, and magnesium, **delicious.
