During the dead of winter what can you still find, all radiant and bright green, shinning brightly through the darkness? Spruce & Pine branches. Without fail.
Could there be a reason? Could they be telling us something?
We believe the answer is yes because Pine needle tea has been prized for thousands of years for its many health benefits.
It is rich in vitamin C (5 times the concentration of vitamin C found in lemons) and can bring relief to conditions such as heart disease, varicose veins, skin complaints and fatigue
Vitamin C is also an immune system booster which means that pine needle tea can help to fight illness and infections.
Pine needle tea also contains high levels of Vitamin A, which is good for your eyesight, improves hair and skin regeneration and improves red blood cell production.
It can be used as an expectorant for coughs and to help relieve chest congestion; it is also good for sore throats.
It even brings you clarity and mental clearness.
It can help with depression, obesity, allergies and high blood pressure.
Pine needles contain antioxidants. These reduce free radicals, which are harmful to humans and can cause disease.
Taoist priests drank pine needle tea as they believed it made them live longer. There is even researched evidence that pine needle tea can help to slow the aging process.
With all that said, friends, we have made a small batch of spruce tea & Honey for you!
