Updated: Jun 11, 2022



Although Essential Oil's, Herbs, and Floral's are natural and come from the earth, it is always in your best interest to take the time to research the benefits as well as possible side effects with long term or overuse.


Herbal Tea's are pretty much safe to consume but nature's medicine can at times interfere with medication that is prescribed by a Physician.


Example:


Hibiscus Flower Benefits

  • May help with blood sugar level control.

  • Contains vitamin A,C, D, B1, B2

  • Every 100 grams of Hibiscus vitamin C benefit is 20 times higher than oranges and tomatoes

  • Increased Stamina

  • Gastric health

Over-consumption Possible Side Effects

  • Gas and bloating

  • May exaggerate Gout

  • Avoid if taking Chemo or Radiation treatment

Although Hibiscus has it's pros and cons, the pros outweigh the cons. Hibiscus is generally safe and can be considered a herbal medicine. It is recommended for 1 cup 1-3 petals for tea and 1 cup of tea is usually safe for everyday for most people. Over-consumption can affect medicines, reproductive system and so on. Over-consumption would be considered more than 1 cup on a daily basis.

DO YOUR RESEARCH ON THE BENEFITS AS WELL AS THE SIDE EFFECTS.
