Can Herbal Tea Stop Excess Sweating?
When I first started drinking herbal teas it was nothing to do with me sweating too much. I had other health
issues that meant I couldn’t drink milk. So I started searching for other hot drinks that I could make. The only ones I really enjoyed were the herbal teas. There is a dazzling array of types on sale in supermarkets here in the UK. I’m sure its the same worldwide. But not all herbal teas have the same benefits. Most of them are good for something and you can buy complete books on what to serve up to cure various ailments.
So can herbal tea stop excess sweating? I think it is true to say it can help reduce sweating for some people. It is going a bit too far to say it will actually stop your sweating completely. If you have a sweat problem then you will know that you have a set of your own ways to reduce the sweat problem you have.
Sage Tea for helping reduce sweating.
After looking into the best herbal tea for helping sweat problems the front runner appears to be Sage. The pure and simple herb you can grow in your garden can help with too much sweat. Because it acts as an astringent it can dry your skin and reduce excessive sweat and secretions from your skin. It works on most types of sweat problem including night sweats and hot flushes.
A 2005 study at the School of Public Health, Queensland University of Technology, Brisbane, found that in a controlled trial sage and alfalfa reduced severe hot flushes by 60% compared with a placebo.
How to Make Sage Tea
To make your own sweat cure herbal tea simply pick 10 sage leaves from your sage plant and put them into a cup. Pour on hot (Not boiling) water and stand for 2 minutes. Remove the sage leaves and drink. I have to say it is an acquired taste. But you can add flavour to mask the sage taste. Lemon, honey or mint work fine.
I haven’t looked for sage tea in the shops as I have plenty of sage in my garden. You can buy sage tablets that will also help with your excess sweat problem.
