Silk Road Tea-9

Feeling a bit more tired now that the days are gradually getting shorter and the hours of sun are disappearing into clouds and showers? We are too, and recently turned to Silk Road Tea for health-minded ways to greet fall and winter.

Their shops (in Vancouver and Victoria) are stocked with lots of great black, green, white and herbal teas, skin care, bath salts, soaps as well as tea accessories.

Doing whatever they can to lessen their load on the environment, Silk Road’s teas and fresh, organic skincare and body care products support small farms, biodiversity, eco-friendly growing methods, protect the food chain and have a low carbon footprint.

Being in a forest can actually reduce stress, boost the immune system, benefit the respiratory system and increase mental clarity. We’re lucky to be living so close to natural rainforests here on the West coast, and Silk Road has brought that experience right into their Westcoast Wilderness product line.

Place a few drops of their Westcoast Wilderness essential oil into your diffuser (or hot bath!) and smell a forest come to life in your space, with local, sustainably-harvested silver fir, pine needle and juniper.

There are also physical benefits to using all-natural ingredients: topical application or bathing in them simulates the circulation, tones muscles, softens the skin, dissolves physical tension and soothes away aches and pains, including muscle and joint stiffness!

Allergy and Hay Fever Defense is another ideal essential oil for this time of year, to help both purify your space and combat airborne allergies (dust, pollen, pet hair). Taking a whiff out of its bottle, I discover an invigorating mix of eucalyptus, peppermint, lavender and rosemary.

Silk Road is unique in that its owner, Daniela Cubelic, also happens to be a tea master, experienced in finding the purest teas in the world to bring to the brand.

Drinking fresh tea makes a huge difference. Drinking old tea not only equates to diminished flavour, but also to reduced health benefits.

Silk Road teas and products are produced without soy, gluten, dairy, nuts, sugars or additives.

Nutrient-dense teas help support digestion, boost metabolism, elevate mood and are great to cook with. You can even make refrigerated power shakes and glacial melts (hot tea over scoops of vanilla ice cream) with tea.

If you’re looking to reduce caffeine consumption, Silk Road has a great selection of herbal teas. Rooibos is an unprocessed tea and is naturally caffeine-free while rich in antioxidants.
