Have cold and clamy hands all the time? Have disgusting sweat marks on your shirts and sweaters all the time? Embarrassed to shake someone’s hand with your wet and slimy hands? Want to stop excessive sweating? Let’s look at a few solutions for sweaty palms and feet (Hyperhidrosis).
In China, the most commonly enjoyed tea is definitely green tea. Greens are easy to process, easy to store, and easy to brew – and they have the added benefits of tasting good and improving your health. Also, green tea is a good base for blends with flowers like jasmine, chrysanthemum and osmanthus.
Chamomile and lavender are two unique flowers, both valued for their calming and relaxing effects on the human body and mind. Lavender tends to reach the mind/body channel through the olfactories, while chamomile is less pungent and is typically ingested or used topically. However, both flowers are used in a variety of different ways: tisanes, creams, oils, perfumes, and in cooking.
White tea is a very special tea because it is very labor intensive in the beginning, when each fuzzy white baby leaf is plucked by hand from the plant. The highest quality white tea is comprised of uniform white leaves only. The descending grades are basically larger or older white leaves and/or white leaves mixed with darker green leaves and stems.
Summer is the season of sensual delights—long days, warm breezes, and that brilliant energy of foliage in full bloom. Jasmine tea blends fit right in with that relaxing and invigorating pace of life and are an excellent choice to quench your thirst or compliment summer’s many delightful and fresh meals.

Kombucha is a fermented tea made from a combination of a scoby, sugar and green or black tea. People erroneously call the scoby a mushroom, when in reality it’s a byproduct of the bacteria and yeasts in the kombucha brew – scoby is an acronym that stands for “symbiotic collection of bacteria and yeast”.
It’s estimated that about 16% of us experience a migraine headache at some point in our lives. These massive, incapacitating headaches strike at what seems like random intervals – or do they? Is there something we can do to avoid them? And once they strike, is our only option to take a strong dose of medicine and lie down in the dark until the symptoms subside?
Many women will suffer or have, at one point or another, already suffered from urinary tract infections. They are irritating at best; if left untreated for even a couple of days, they can become excruciating. Most doctors prescribe a course of antibiotics to treat UTIs – but what to do if you’re not the type who runs to antibiotics to fix any problem?
Aphthous ulcers are better known as canker sores, but those of us that get them and feel their effects wish we didn’t know them at all. They’re painful, they keep us from enjoying our favorite foods, and they always seem to get worse just when you don’t think they could.
