It can be hard to imagine, but our ancestors from 1,500 BC used to drink tea. And now, centuries later, it’s no surprise that drinking all different types of tea has numerous health benefits. What most people don’t know, though, is that grabbing a teabag from your kitchen can help with several home emergencies.
1. It can help you get rid of blackheads and acne.
Green tea is rich with antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties and is perfect for you if you’re struggling with blackheads and acne. You can mix the interior of 2 bags with warm water and honey to create a natural face mask. Leave it on your face for 20 minutes to see the redness and irritation go away.
2. It can ease your toothache.
One easy way to get rid of that painful toothache is with the topical use of peppermint tea. Since it has antibacterial and numbing effects, one slightly warm tea bag can be pressed onto your hurting tooth until the pain goes away.
3. It helps alleviate menstrual cramps.
Menstrual cramps can be a woman’s worst enemy, but the good news is that chamomile is a natural muscle soother. You can either drink it warm in the form of tea or, if you have a bathtub, create a chamomile bath.
