Marigold (Calendula officinalis) ~has been harnessed for thousands of years for its impressive health benefits. It is one of the earliest cultivated flowers with origins reaching as far back as ancient Egypt. Calendula continued to be an important medicine in ancient Greece and Rome. Early on it was most commonly used as a skin treatment; for minor wounds, insect bites, eczema, itches, and burns. While this ancient medicine might seem old school, it’s still widely used today for both its holistic properties and also its effective applications. Because of its high concentration of flavonoids such as carotene Marigold is praised for its general skin care benefits. The nutrient rich flower boosts topical healing while soothing irritated skin which extends from your skin to your eyes and even works to soothe a sore throat!
Chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla) ~ is a softly scented flower that brings an extra layer of calm to your tea drinking experience.

Chamomile is known for its relaxing, soothing qualities and, in combination with classic mountain tea,is the perfect accompaniment to your pre-bedtime relaxation. There’s a reason your mum brewed you a cup of chamomile when you didn’t feel well, this soothing tea calms your nervous system, eases common issues such as allergies and eczema and can help promote a healthy sleep cycle.
Lavender (Lavandula Officinale) ~ The therapist of tea blends, lavender’s function is to quiet the mind and relax the body. Its fragrance alone activates a sense of calm in the nervous system. Lavender has been used for centuries as a natural source of mental anxiety relief and easing symptoms of depression. Similar to calendula, lavender can also aid in healing external cuts and sores
Prepare your tea
Tea is served at its best using a teapot. This allows you to use a greater amount of water which will bring out the entire flavour profile of your tea (it’s also better for our planet to heat your water only once!)
For a 1L teapot use 2-3 grams of your tea blend
For 1 cup of 300 ml use 1-2 grams of your tea blend
Pour freshly boiled water (95ºC) over the tea and leave to infuse for 5 minutes
You don't need to remove the tea, it will sink to the bottom of the cup
Tea can be used up to three times in a 12-hour period
Enjoy it cold during hot summer days, refrigerate it or use ice cubes
