Herbal teas, a must have
To adopt a healthy lifestyle and to treat the body gently, herbal teas are great allies. They are: natural, versatile and therapeutic. Each plant has its own properties that are beneficial to the body. If you are not yet a fan of herbal teas, stay with me. Today I'm going to give you 10 good reasons to have them at home :
#1. To keep you warm
In winter, drinking herbal teas can be very useful if your owner controls the temperature in your home, if you watch your electricity bill or if you live near a lake or river.
#2. To replace your coffee
Herbal teas are caffeine-free drinks that you can consume throughout the day hot or cold. You will therefore no longer have to deprive yourself of drinking it at a certain time so as not to interfere with your sleep.
Not all plants are created equal! As an alternative to coffee, opt for infusions that provide energy and vitality.
