As your Wingwomen, we're committed to not only looking after your period, but your well-being and sanity, too. Here’s a list of our favourite teas and their benefits:
SLOW METABOLISM? → GREEN TEA
The Green tea is your friend, Moxette! Green tea has been shown to inhibit fat absorption and burn calories. Sign us up!
STRESSED? → CINNAMON & CLOVES
An oldie but a goodie, this remedy dates all the way back to the Middle Ages. It can work wonders for period pain and cramps, too. Double happiness!
NAUSEOUS? → GINGER TEA
Ginger promotes the secretion of digestive enzymes that neutralise stomach acid and also helps move toxins through your system quicker. Make ginger your nausea ninja.
BLOATED? → PEPPERMINT TEA
Peppermint tea contains menthol, which helps to relax your stomach muscles and allows you to release any pent up gas. You may want to have the room to yourself for this one, Moxette… #GirlsGetGasToo
COLD & FLU SYMPTOMS? → SUPERFRUITS TEA
Packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, tea made from super-fruits like blueberry and pomegranate give you an uplifting boost to your day. Make super-fruits tea your best bud this Winter (second best friend, after me of course).
RESTLESS SLEEPER? → CHAMOMILE TEA
Chamomile is the ultimate soother. Just don’t drink TOO much of it before bed – whilst chamomile is caffeine free and won’t keep you awake, a full bladder might.
Time to get your brew on, Moxette.
