Winter has certainly hit the Mother City as we feel the icy cold of the wind and rain. It is time to take out those hot water bottles, put on warm clothing, wrap our hands up in mittens and sip on a cup of Lavender Tea.
In aromatherapy, Lavender is well known for its calming and soothing effect; less known is its health-giving properties as a culinary herb. Because of its ability to slow down the nervous system, drinking lavender tea helps with various problems and anxiety disorders. The Lavender in Lavender Hill company has infused Lavender with Rooibos and Honeybush to make a proudly South African lavender tea. These Lavender Rooibos and Lavender Honeybush teas do not only have a great taste but they are filled with wonderful healing benefits:

Lavender in tea induces relaxation and sleep because of its soothing aroma. Inhaling the scent of lavender and internalising the tea may slow nervous system activity which can help with anxiety, insomnia, stress and depression. Many people with anxiety problems report that lavender tea has a very strong calming effect.
