Ginger is spicy, warm, and incredibly useful, with a broad range of health benefits, similar to a jack-of-all-trades. These various health benefits of ginger are enhanced when combined with specific botanicals. Here are some of the ways you can combine versatile and amazing ginger to feel your healthiest on a daily basis!


Ginger + Peppermint = Anti-nausea

A combination of ginger and peppermint promotes relief of all types of nausea, including indigestion, motion sickness, morning sickness, and the nausea that happens if you get a stomach bug. Because ginger works on so many different types of nausea, there is speculation that ginger may be affecting the part of the brain responsible for nausea. And peppermint just makes your tummy feel good.

Teas that contain peppermint and ginger together include:

  • Detox Chai, a tea that supports digestion and helps to promote your body's natural detoxification process
  • Sleek & Slender, a tea blend that improves digestion and promotes healthy weight

Ginger + Cinnamon = Healthy Cholesterol

Ginger and cinnamon promotes healthy cholesterol levels when used on a regular basis, for at least three months. According to research, cinnamon shows promise in lowering unhealthy LDL cholesterol. Other studies on ginger showed that it was also beneficial in lowering triglycerides and LDL cholesterol. 

Teas that contain this powerful combo include:

    Ginger + Fennel = Indigestion Relief

    If you feel heavy and bloated after meals, the combination of ginger and fennel may be your ticket to relief. Ginger and fennel reduce excess gas and bloating, and also reduce inflammation in the digestive tract. Drink a warm cup after a heavy meal, and definitely keep some on hand during the holidays, when overeating is most common.

    Teas that contain this powerful tummy-soothing combo include:

      Ginger + Oolong = Weight Loss

      Of all the teas, when it comes to fat burning, Oolong has been shown to be the most powerful. Because ginger supports digestion by improving the breakdown of fats and proteins, you will get more out of your meals, and feel less hungry. Because of this, the combination of fat-burning Oolong and digestive-boosting ginger is a great addition to your weight loss regimen.

      Ginger + Rosemary = Headache Relief (And Also Hair Growth)

      For headaches, try a combination of ginger and rosemary. Ginger may help reduce swelling in the blood vessels, and rosemary is a mild analgesic. Drink this combo at the start if a headache, and don't forget to inhale the fragrant vapors as it steeps. Because ginger and rosemary increase circulation, including to the scalp, this combo may also promote healthy hair growth.

      Ginger + Turmeric = Inflammation Relief

      The anti-inflammatory benefits of turmeric are well-documented, but did you know that as an anti-inflammatory, ginger is just as powerful? This star combo is unbeatable for inflammation of all types, including arthritic pain, muscle pain and sprains, inflammation in the gut, allergies, and skin issues.

      You can find this inflammation-fighting combo in:

      • Happy Place tea, an uplifting caffeine-free tea that promotes relief of inflammation, supports digestion, and boosts your mood naturally
      • Turmeric Fusion, a fragrant, super anti-inflammatory turmeric tea blend


      Ginger + Goldenrod = Natural Allergy Relief

      Because ginger is such a powerful anti-inflammatory, it may be helpful at reducing the symptoms of seasonal allergies. But goldenrod? Yes, actually. You might be surprised to learn that goldenrod is not the culprit in seasonal allergies, but it does get the blame because it flowers at the same time as the real culprit: ragweed. Goldenrod actually helps alleviate the runny nose and watery eyes that occur during allergy season. 

      Our allergy, cough, and cold remedy, Allergy Relief contains ginger and goldenrod.

      Ginger + Green Tea = Anti-aging

      Everyone knows that green tea is loaded with powerful antioxidants that fight aging. But ginger is also high in antioxidant compounds that can also protect the body from premature aging. Because ginger improves circulation, it is the perfect vehicle for helping the body circulate green tea's antioxidants throughout the body, including to the blood vessels that feed the skin.

      Ginger + Licorice Root = Cough relief

      If you're dealing with any type of cough, consider trying a combination of ginger and licorice root (totally different from black licorice, which isn't even licorice anyway). The anti-inflammatory effects of ginger can reduce swelling of the airways, making it easier to breathe. Licorice root is a natural expectorant, and may help clear mucus from the lungs.

      You can find this powerful combination in these teas:

        Ginger + Gymnema = Blood Sugar Balance

        According to different scientific studies, ginger has been shown to promote healthy blood sugar levels in a number of different ways, all of which are completely over my head to explain because I am not a scientist, but the conclusions are the ginger is effective in helping control blood sugar. Gymnema takes this to a whole other level, by blocking your perception of the sweet flavor when taken as a tea, and, with long term use, eventually eliminating your craving for sweets altogether.

        Sleek & Slender contains both ginger and gymnema, and is a wonderful tea to drink if you're trying to stay off sugar.



        And there you have it! The benefits of ginger tea certainly transcend its distinctive spicy kick. It stands as a nutritious, adaptable elixir with a remarkable spectrum of applications. Be it calming your tummy with a ginger-peppermint fusion, seeking anti-aging wonders with a ginger-green tea, or kickstarting weight loss with a ginger-oolong blend, there's an exquisite concoction tailored for every need and desire.
