Moon Tea for PMS Relief

If you suffer from Pre-Menstrual Syndrome or Tension, you'll know that this challenging time of the month is often accompanied by stomach cramps, headaches, feelings of anxiety, boating and food cravings. In fact, many people will experience some signs of PMS at some point, which can range from mild in nature to fairly debilitating.

There are various approaches to try to ease PMS symptoms, ranging from hot water bottles for localised stomach ache relief to medication for more serious conditions. But it's well worth looking for natural approaches which are often surprisingly effective - without chemicals, additives or pharmaceuticals. Many of these PMS support and relief products have been around for hundreds of years and are based upon natural ingredients that gently support the body and ease feelings of unbalance or discomfort.

One of these most effective remedies is called moon tea and it's a traditional form of PMS relief that is gaining widespread interest in the West. Let's take a closer look at Moon tea and discover its PMS relief benefits.

What is Moon Tea?

Moon tea is an ancient herbal remedy that combines medicinal herbs with the warmth and comfort of a non-caffeine tea for soothing and comfort. Moon tea combines ginger, hibiscus, red raspberry leaf, ginkgo and other optional ingredients such as calming chamomile and other botanicals. Every moon tea blend will be made to a particular recipe and the resulting blend is very soothing and tasty, without any caffeine. This means that it can be enjoyed at any time of day without disturbing sleep patterns.

How To Enjoy Moon Tea

You can make your own moon blend using dried or natural herbs to create an infusion. However, most people will prefer to buy their moon tea blends, which will come blended and presented in a tea bag or pyramid bag. Alternatively, the spices and herbs may be bought in a pre-blended pack, ready for loose-leaf tea infusion in a pot. Whatever your preferred mode of preparation, you will need to infuse the tea in near-boiling water (or according to the instructions) for several minutes, so that the botanicals and herbs can release their beneficial oils.

Once your tea has been blended to the desired strength, you can either drink it hot and as it is, or add a little natural sweetener, such as honey. The tea can be enjoyed hot or cooled, perhaps with a slice of lemon. It is likely to provide additional comfort against stomach cramps if it is enjoyed warm or hot. Sip it slowly, relax with a hot water bottle and wait for the discomfort to pass.
