Many of us are looking for ways to improve our health. We spend time reading articles, watching documentaries on TV, and doing research online. But how much TIME do we actually take for ourselves to implement these healthy routines that can be life changing? One thing that most people neglect is their own personal self-care routine. Women in particular. The benefits of a hot tea bath can be tremendous. Not only will it help you relax at the end of the day, but it will also help with your circulation and metabolism so you have more energy throughout the day, all the while improving your quality of sleep and helping to balance your hormones. After just 15 minutes a few days a week, you will start to notice your energy improving, your digestion improving and joint/and muscle pain dissipate.
