Treat PMS With Herbal Tea

Your jeans are fitting tighter than usual. Your partner’s breathing is getting on your nerves. And you feel like you could comfortably fall asleep at any given moment. Then it dawns on you - your period is due and you’re definitely PMSing. Do you have to live with these uncomfortable symptoms or are there safe and effective natural ways to help you combat this difficult part of womanhood? 

Enter - herbal tea. Packed with tasty and powerful ingredients, herbal and relaxation tea can help naturally treat annoying symptoms of PMS. Here’s what you need to know. 


What is PMS?

PMS (premenstrual syndrome) can bring on a wide variety of uncomfortable symptoms in the weeks leading up to your period. From mood swings to bloating to depression, these pesky emotional and physical symptoms can leave you feeling down in the dumps. Occurring in a fairly predictable pattern, here are just some of the symptoms caused by PMS. 

  • Headaches
  • Anxiety
  • Sore breasts
  • Mood swings
  • Bloating
  • Digestive Issues
  • Insomnia
  • Fatigue

In the lead up to our period, our levels of estrogen and progesterone start reducing dramatically if we’re not pregnant. These hormone fluctuations and chemical changes in the brain are thought to spur on the uncomfortable symptoms caused by PMS. 

While some women hardly notice changes caused by PMS, others struggle both physically and emotionally during this period each month. 

But as we experience these changes in our hormone levels during the menstrual cycle, the good news is that there are natural tea blends available to get you feeling more like yourself again. From relaxation tea to teas that help aid digestion, there are countless delicious herbs to ease uncomfortable PMS symptoms. 

When it comes to selecting natural tea blends to help ease painful period symptoms, here are some notable herbs to look out for: 

  • Chamomile: Chamomile does much more than help you drift off into the land of nod. Possessing anti-spasmodic properties, chamomile can help alleviate cramping caused by PMS. It also has antidepressant properties thanks to its ability to modulate the actions of serotonin, thus easing feelings of anxiety and depression. Chamomile makes for a wonderful relaxation tea before bedtime. 
  • Peppermint: PMS can wreak havoc on our digestive symptoms. Peppermint can help alleviate these symptoms while providing much-needed relief from pain caused by PMS.
  • Lemon balm:  As tasty as it is powerful, lemon balm is a brilliant contender for combating PMS symptoms. From easing the intensity of menstrual cramps to helping you feel relaxed and at ease during a stressful time, lemon balm is an absolute must for that time of the month. 
  • Lavender: Containing relaxing properties that can help ease pain and discomfort during PMS, lavender is as healing as it is aromatic. Helping combat mood swings and anxiety, this delicious herb is both soothing and restorative.
