Essential oils are a great way to enhance your yoga practice. As you likely already know, yoga isn't just simple stretching but rather a disciplined practice that focuses on the health, balance, and well-being of your entire body, spirit, and mind. Just like yoga, essential oils and aromatherapy works to support the entire well-being of your body, spirit, and mind. You can achieve these positive effects aromatherapy, like positive emotional states and mental clarity, through applying and diffusion of the pure essential oils themselves. When you combine essential oils with your yoga practice, you powerfully enhance your journey.
Two ways in which you can use essential oils with your yoga practice are:

If you drink tea before or after a yoga class, you can reap some serious benefits and surprising results. Whether you're practicing restorative or hot yoga, we've got some perfect tea pairings for your yoga practice.
- If you practice restorative yoga, look into sipping some calm, rejuvenating, and soothing lavender or a mood-boosting chamomile.
- More of a hot yoga fan? We suggest pairing your hot yoga practice with menthol-abundant peppermint that activates your cells' cold-sensitive receptors. This tea will create a mild cooling effect / sensation for up to an hour! We love a good Lemon Lavender Mint combination for the ultra calming and caffeine-free benefits.
- Do you meditate on a regular basis? If so, trying pairing your meditation sessions with the polyphenols found in green tea to increase your cognitive functions. This is a go-to tea to drink before any meditation session! We love a good Jasmine Green Tea to help you wind down and feel centered.
- More of an active, vinyasa flow yogi? Plenty of research points to the caffeine in black tea and how it benefits your circulation. Plus, it will help you from getting lightheaded after a power flow vinyasa class! Consider a lemon ginger tea iced with touch of honey. It's invigoratingly spicy, yet the ginger helps your stomach settled during active classes.

Green Tea Has Weight Loss Benefits
We are back with another installment on the Savvy Teas and Herbs blog. Welcome back to our blog that discusses organic teas, yogurt starter culture, and bulk herbs. Our teas, herbs, and yogurt starters will revive you and keep you feeling your absolute best. Last time, we discussed how teas are rich in antioxidants and can fight the onset of cardiovascular disease, heart disease, and cancer. We even had a chance to discuss organic teas because their leaves are not treated with pesticides or tampered with in any way. As you know, we love to do on our blog is answer questions posed to us in our teas and herbs advice column. We will continue that effort today with a question about the weight loss benefits of teas. Here is our most recent letter.
Dear Organic Tea and Bulk Herbs Expert,
I have heard a lot about the weight loss benefits of teas and wonder if there is any real merit to any of it. I could really stand to lose a few pounds that seem to be stuck on me. I enjoy many of the flavors of green teas, but I do not drink it very much because I usually rely on the caffeine from coffee in the mornings to get me through the morning. Then I usually have a soda in the afternoon for a little lift after lunch. I’m a little afraid of giving up my coffee because I need the energy to do my work and stay awake at my desk job. Can you help me with my quote - unquote drinking habits, oh wise and knowledgeable Organic Tea Sage?
Thank you for answering my question,
Caffeinated in Queens
We have several tips for you to drink healthier and keep your energy up while you modify your quote - unquote drinking problem.
Here are just a few of ways to help yourself out:
Stop drinking that soda. Even a little bit of soda is harmful to your system and does cause you to accumulate and hang on to those extra pounds.
Drink a couple of cups of green tea throughout the day. The caffeine that is in there will be enough to give you a boost and studies suggest that it can help increase your metabolism. However, it also helps you burn calories through a process called thermogenesis, which is basically the rate at which calories are burned.
“Even when the word tea is just uttered, our attention turns immediately in the direction in which the word came and our senses tell us to say yes for a cup of tea. Here at Savvy Teas & Herbs, we love organic tea and herbs and we love the beneficial effects on our mind and body. Organic lemon tea is one of our favorite teas out there right now and for just reasons!”
Thank you for sending in your excellent question for our advice column. We hope this has been helpful for you and answered your question.

Organic Tea Is Great For Your Heart
Thank you for checking in on the Savvy Teas and Herbs blog. Welcome back to our discussion on organic teas, yogurt starter culture, and bulk herbs. Our teas, herbs, and yogurt starters keep people revived and feeling their absolute best. Teas are rich in antioxidants, so they fight the onset of cardiovascular disease, heart disease, and cancer. More specifically, organic teas are teas whose leaves have not been treated with pesticides or tampered with in any way. One of the things we love to do on our blog is answer questions posed to us in our teas and herbs advice column.
Dear Organic Tea Experts,
I have just recently got diagnosed with high blood pressure. I have not been a diligent tea drinker, but I do like an occasional cup of hot tea. I do like the fact that there are organic teas so I do not have to worry about pesticides and all of those chemicals. I can not imagine that pesticides would be good for my heart at all.
A friend of mine mentioned that tea is good for your heart and cardiovascular system, in general. I am very concerned now about my heart health and am hoping that organic teas can help reduce my hypertension. Can you tell me if these assertions are true and if so, how much tea is recommended for optimal heart health.
Thank you for answering my question,
We are sorry to hear that you are experiencing hypertension but relieved that you caught it in time to do something about it. We believe you will find our news about tea’s effects on the heart encouraging. Drinking tea may reduce the risk of heart disease b expanding your heart’s arteries and improving overall blood flow. It is like widening the highway to handle increased traffic. It also reduces the buildup of harmful plaque by reducing cholesterol. Organic tea does this by improving the ratio of your HDL and LDL cholesterol. More specifically, HDL, your good cholesterol, eliminates LDL, your bad cholesterol, from the body. The more HDL you have, the more it can effectively deal with the bad cholesterol in your body and keep it from forming on the inner walls of your arteries. When cholesterol builds up in your arteries, not only does it clog them up and create the potential for pieces of plaque to break away, it also hardens your arteries and makes them less pliable.
You also asked about the amount of tea you should drink. Studies show that just two cups of organic tea per day reduces your risk for a heart attack by preventing your arteries from clogging. Other studies have demonstrated that drinking 3-4 cups per day can reduce your risks for heart disease by up to 46%.
We hope this answers your questions and has helped you become a lifelong tea drinker.
