Hello!

Most people drink tea for taste, but how about tea that will actually benefit your body in some way? Tea is rapidly resurfacing as a popular natural remedy for a variety of problems such as cramps, sore throats, insomnia and bloating.

So, mums pay attention – because this list is for you! A specially crafted list of organic teas available, specifically tailored to help mums on the run.

Nettle Tea

This one is for anyone who suffers with those dreaded runny eyes and flu-like symptoms associated with allergies! Nettle Tea acts as both an anti-histamine and anti-inflammatory on the body. The reduction of watery, stinging eyes and the puffiness associated with allergies can occur quickly in some people after drinking.

A quick note – we recommend steeping this tea over night for the full effect! This will create a fairly strong flavour but, you can add honey to soften the flavour.

How does it work?

Quite simply, Nettle Tea is a natural anti-histamine and also reduces inflammation. Scientists think nettle may alter the way pain receptors transmit signals throughout the body.

Red Clover Tea

Have you ever heard of Red Clover tea? A great trifecta of benefits that can help reduce some painful symptoms for many women. Some research has claimed that Red Clover can alleviate symptoms of menopause and symptoms associated with menstrual cramping.

How does it work?

Isoflavones within this tea are converted into phytoestrogens, which are similar in composition to the hormone estrogen. At MoM, We advise reading up on the interactions and possible side effects of Red Clover before you take it.

Chamomile Tea

An old favourite, there’s a reason Chamomile tea is so widely recommended for stress relief. Part of the reason Chamomile Tea is so relaxing is the taste itself! We’ve found the more organic and natural the Chamomile Tea is (specifically loose leaf), the stronger the effects. The taste may not be quite as strong as what you’re used to from supermarket bought teas, but you will definitely notice the increased sense of relaxation.

How does it work?

Chamomile Tea contains Bosabolol, Matricin, and Oxides A and B – which all work together to promote relaxation.

Lemon Myrtle Tea

Last on our list – Lemon Myrtle Tea. It’s actually quite amazing. Like a few other teas we’ve mentioned here, this tea is another that is rapidly gaining popularity not only for it’s taste, but also it’s dizzying array of benefits. It relieves cramps, spasms, headaches, and rheumatism and acts as an antiseptic.

How does it work?

There are quite a lot of ways, but they’re too numerous to list here. Though we will quickly point out that Lemon Myrtle Tea contains  Zinc, Calcium, Magnesium, Vitamins A and E.

If you’re a mum who isn’t into tea, you may benefit from a visit your local tea shop to check out the blends they offer. Even our most common and beloved teas like peppermint and cranberry have great health benefits, check them out and you might discover a new love!

  • I have come to love herbal teas, peppermint is great for settling the tummy. But my favourite is honey, camomile and vanilla its holesome smell relaxes me before I even get a taste.

  • Our family love peppermint and honey tea, we use leaves off our peppermint bush we have at home and make up a big pot in the cold winter months.


    • A good anti-inflammatory and helps fight off colds, so that’s a good choice for Winter time :)

  • Ginger is one of my favourites. I’m a fan of most herbal teas and have quite a collection. It is never a matter of tea of coffee? at our house. It’s quite a long list to get through which tea you might like.

  • Maybe somebody can cause a tea which is guaranteed not to cause or aggravate reflux. Somebody suggested peppermint tea. No help. I have to stick to a bland diet – no strong flavoured foods or drinks. Spices are off the list completely.


    • Chamomile, licorice, slippery elm, and marshmallow are all good against reflux.
      Actually Peppermint is not recommended to drink if you suffer from such symptoms!

  • oh I have never tried any of these teas – they do sound wonderful though – I am interested very much in trying the lemon myrtle one! – thanks for sharing this article with us


    • The Lemon Myrtle we’re especially proud of – extremely fresh and Australian grown! We sometimes include a free sample with orders just because we want more to experience it.

  • I absolutely love lemon myrtle tea because of the taste. I had no idea it had so many health benefits as well.


    • It’s probably one of our best selling teas at the moment – and is going through a bit of a popularity phase much like Matcha tea is due to it’s health benefits.

  • I love chamomile and drink it regularly. The same goes for peppermint tea. The licorice tea has an interesting flavour, as rooibos tea. I love herbal teas!!


    • Chamomile is one of my favorites too! My skins actually improved a bit since I’ve been drinking regularly, probably because it has some anti-inflammatory properties.



      • Very possible indeed. I find it has a very calming effect on my body.

  • I’m only just staring to get into flavoured teas. I’ve joined T2 and have discovered some divine blends there. Normally, green tea is my favourite with black close behind
