We are all quite accustomed to Eucalyptus oil. This aromatic oil is used to relieve congestion caused by colds or allergies.

I was amazed when I discovered it could also be utilized in the form of a tea to calm inflammation. This trick was borrowed from the aboriginal people of Australia. They have been using Eucalyptus tea to treat inflammatory diseases like arthritis, for thousands of years.

Spices That Help Inflammation

Fennel is a plant that is primarily used to add flavour to our foods but is also quite beneficial to our health. Additionally, Fennel helps us to relax since it contains analgesic compounds.

Another spice that can boost the power of tea is cinnamon. Cinnamon not only adds a delicious flavor to tea, but it can also be used to manage prolonged inflammation

No matter which tea you decide to make use of, here are a few simple rules to follow:

  • Use healthy sweeteners like honey and spices instead of white sugar which feeds inflammation.
  • These teas are generally safe for most people, but you may want to consult a medical practitioner if you are pregnant or taking medication for a pre-existing health condition.
