To me there's nothing more relaxing than the calming aroma of Earl Grey tea, but did you know that this delicious tea actually makes an amazing skin care and cleaning ingredient too? In this next blog I've put together a guide to the benefits of organic Earl Grey tea.
There are few things more calming than sipping on a hot cup of tea when you need a bit of a mid-afternoon break, but did you know that your Earl Grey can actually be of real benefit to your skin too? One of my all-time favourite organic tea flavours, Earl Grey combines the strong herbal flavour of Black Tea with the fresh citrus aroma of Bergamot Orange to create its unique and iconic scent, but this fragrant blend does so much more than just taste great.
Earl Grey tea health benefits
As a tea, I love Earl Grey because it's packed with antioxidants such as Polyphenol as well as the calming aroma of Bergamot, Earl Grey is also very soothing, helping to relax and restore balance to the mind and body. Its benefits go beyond that though, when applied topically, it really can work wonders for the skin. Those amazing antioxidants help keep your skin healthy and hydrated while fighting against free radical damage, plus it's packed with Vitamins B1, B2, E and H to help keep your skin feeling soft, plump and smooth.
