Jasmine Flower Tea
Chinese jasmine flower tea pictures. There are two kinds of jasmine tea: black and green. They both convey important health benefits. Organic jasmine tea is the most therapeutic.
Jasmine tea is traditionally produced by adding jasmine flowers to green tea. The jasmine adds fragrance, a bit of sweetness and its own unique medicinal properties to the green tea. Jasmine is also sometimes added to black tea.

If you want to turn your green tea into jasmine tea on your own at home, you may also use the flowers of Jasminum grandiflorum as they have the same medicinal properties.
Do not use other jasmine flowers. Some plants commonly called jasmine are not from the same plant family as these 2. They are called jasmine because of their fragrance but they contain very different compounds some of which are poisonous.
Jasmine Tea Benefits
By drinking Chinese jasmine tea you are taking advantage of all the health benefits of green tea plus the added benefits of jasmine.
The catechins in green tea are powerful antioxidants. Drinking as little as 2 cups per day has been documented to reduce the risk of contracting various cancers. Studies have shown that 4 cups per day reduce the risk of heart disease.
Green tea aids in weight loss and cholesterol reduction. It seems to be the magic elixir of our time and its benefits have been widely studied and publicized.
Jasmine flowers are calming and mildly sedative. Their aroma is relaxing and antidepressant. A water infusion of the flowers can inhibit bacteria in the mouth and digestive tract and stimulate the menses in women of childbearing age. Because of this, jasmine tea should not be regularly ingested by pregnant women.
A single cup will do no harm but 2 or 3 cups might. Also, 1 cup drunk every day for several days might not be safe during pregnancy.

If, like me, you are sensitive to pharmaceuticals and tend to have adverse reactions to over-the-counter or prescription drugs, this comprehensive guide to using herbal alternatives may be just what you need to manage your health naturally.
I was diagnosed with asthma as a teenager. After several years of struggling with asthma medications and not really getting any better, I decided I could not take it anymore.
The drugs made me feel sleepy all the time.
I threw them away, determined to learn to treat my asthma naturally.
Drugs were much cheaper in those days. I was an impulsive teenage girl. I don't think you should throw your meds away until after you speak with your doctor and find a natural remedy that works!
For the last 30some years, I have been managing my asthma naturally.
I sprinkle ground black pepper on my food daily (it cuts mucus) and avoid my triggers. I also use thyme and cloves often in cooking as these 2 herbal anti-spasmodics relieve the bronchial spasms which happen during an asthma attack.
I have not had a full-blown attack in years!
Over the years, I have discovered many other safe, cheap alternatives to pharmaceuticals. They work if you know how to use them correctly.
That is the true value of Herbs the Natural Alternative. It tells you which herb to use to treat your ailment and how to use it.
Best of all, it is written with gardeners in mind. If you need help deciding which herbs to fill your medicinal garden with, download this book.
You won't be disappointed.
