Skullcap Tea to mend the pieces of your broken heart

08/29/2012

So, while we’re on the subject of tea…

Did you know that tea can cure a broken heart? Bernard-Paul Heroux, a philosopher from the 1900′s, but more famously known for his quotes about tea, once said: “There is no trouble so great or grave that cannot be much diminished by a nice cup of tea.”  Lofty concept indeed, but tea made from the herb, skullcap can take the edge off stressful situations, and is particularly helpful in dealing with grief.

Skullcap stops the cycle of circular thoughts and unshakable emotional tension. Take this plant as a tincture or a tea when you just can’t stop thinking about the breakup and your former love. You will feel the haze of obsession melt away and clarity return, allowing you to focus on work, school, or hobbies that bring you pleasure or much needed catharsis. Skullcap also eases debilitating sadness by softening nervous edginess and relaxing tight muscles. It’s great for headaches that accompany a long cry. The bitter flavor helps encourage hunger and stimulates digestion, which can become sluggish during times of stress. Plus, Skullcap is nutritive to the nervous system and can be taken daily to restore and strengthen your response to stress in the future.
