3 Medicinal Tea Recipes To Keep You Young

3 Medicinal Teas To Keep You YoungToday we’re going to take a look at three time-tested tea recipes that have been used for centuries to support the largest organ in your body – your skin – and keep it youthful and vibrant.

BUT FIRST, let’s examine this concept of “age” a little deeper.

The older I get, the more apparent it is that our Western culture is transfixed on the notion of youth and will go to just about any length to mask the laugh lines and gray hairs that come with living on this planet for awhile.

Psychologist Erik Erickson explains that the fear of aging keeps people from living full, abundant lives. He says,

“Lacking a culturally viable ideal of old age, our civilization does not really harbor a concept of the whole of life.”

Insecurity often accompanies the physical changes that our body experiences along its natural journey through time. But why not love these marks of maturity along with everything else?

Some cultures actually celebrate aging, seeing the passing of years as a sign of wisdom, evolution, and enhanced capacity for grace. People with true eyes for beauty can see beyond the flesh, engaging more with one’s soul and state of being.

How much joy and compassion can a person hold?  How much childlike wonder and vigor?

This is the true measure of agelessness.

Ok, now for those wrinkle-reversing teas . . .

3 Teas That Promote Longevity and Nourish Your Skin

We talked to our friends at Annmarie Gianni Skin Care, who are experts in researching youth and anti-aging and they shared 3 ancient tea recipes that promote a youthful glow, from the inside out. Each of the herbs mentioned below has healthful, antioxidant qualities.

IMPORTANT: For each recipe, use equal parts and steep 2-3 times.

*Michelle and I like to use a french press or infuser mug to make teas from loose herbs—this allows us to finesse the portions to our liking.

Youthful Skin Tea for Oily Skin

For oily skin, use the following cleansing and cooling herbs.

• Lemon balm

Youthful Skin Tea for Dry Skin
