If you have been on my social media lately you would have noticed me mention Sela. So I thought I’d give you the tea behind the tea (are we still saying that? Have I missed the trend?)
Basically, Sela reached out to me about testing out their teas and since they are nicely situated in my Venn diagram right between my obsession with warm drinks and my love of traditional/herbal/reduced pharmaceutical remedies, I thought I would give it a go.
Those who have been following me for a while will know that I’ve been dealing with various health issues – since a traumatic stint in ICU shocked my body out of wack back in 2012. I mean a bunch of my health issues was likely to come on with time anyway (damn genetics) but it got worse after then.
For that reason, I am medicated and doctored and try to stay away from adding extra things to my body if I can help it. So while I won’t heal a broken leg with cinnamon and a moonlit dance, I really do like using herbs, essential oils, and traditional remedies as a supplementary health option.
Sela is a local brand using indigenous African herbs to help with increased overall health. They use “the ancient secrets” passed on by elders from generation to generation to create herbal teas that help boost health and relieve the symptoms of many illnesses.The African traditional herbs used in Sela are carefully selected for their powerful abilities and then packaged in a convenient teabag making it easy to drink.
This might seem a little “out there” but this is Africa we all have family remedies, your mom’s cough medicine, your grandma’s tummy cramp cure, us natural hair girls are always making concoctions in the kitchen for hair. Basically, Sela just makes these practices easier (not the hair) for us to incorporate into our busy lives.
I mean if you have time to grow Devils’ claw, African ginger, Cancer bush and the like and then make it into palatable drinks, more power to you. But for me this tea situation works well.
Sela has been kind enough to let me share some of their tea with some readers (I popped them into the last #BellaBags) and will share reviews with you soon , I also have Sela competitions coming up so keep an eye out guys.
hey have an insane variety of teas for everything to libido and stress to constipation and back ache. Have you tried Sela? Let me know what you think? T
