Sip your way to health this winter with some specific tea for your specifc ailment. Each tea is not only delicious in its own right, but also has specific ailments attached to it. Use them when:  

  1. You have bad breath = Black Tea 

  2. You have the jitters = Passion Flower Tea 

  3. You have allergy sniffles = Nettle Tea 

  4. You have 3pm cravings = Green Tea

  5. You have a headache = Ginger Tea

  6. You’re feeling unintelligent = Ginkgo Tea 

  7. You want to get to sleep = Valerian Tea 

  8. You have a sweet tooth = Licorice Tea 

  9. You have belly woes = Peppermint Tea 

  10. You want faster calorie burn = Oolong Tea


To ensure your leftover garden seeds thrive next year, safeguard them with a simple yet effective method.

Place the seeds in an airtight container, like a mason jar or a sealed plastic bag. Enhance their longevity by tossing in a couple of silica packets, commonly found in shoeboxes.

These desiccants absorb moisture, preventing your seeds from succumbing to unfavourable conditions. Stored in a cool, dry place, your seeds will patiently await their moment to flourish in the next gardening season.


Never underestimate the power of a banana. These yellow wonders aren't just a tasty snack; they're also your ticket to a happier mind.

Bananas boast tryptophan, an amino acid that transforms into serotonin—the famed "happy hormone." Embrace the joy by indulging in this natural mood booster.

A single banana can work wonders, alleviating irritability, taming anger, and lending a helping hand in the battle against depression.

So, next time you need a pick-me-up, reach for this cheerful fruit and let the serotonin surge begin!
