Celestial Seasonings

Hi everyone! Hope you’re having a wonderful day. As you know, I received a package from the lovely people at Celestial Seasonings last week.

They sent me a plethora of teas and goodies, a mug and this book:

herbs for health

I’m especially excited about this because I try to use natural remedies whenever possible and avoid taking medication when I’m sick. I’d much rather feast on fresh organic produce, drink lots of tea and juice.

Tea is especially effective at preventing and aiding with common sicknesses. Check out this info from their website. It includes common symptoms, a tea remedy and suggested food to get you feeling better.

I have a sore, dry or scratchy throat.

  • Soothing chamomile
  • Licorice root and slippery elm bark to coat the throat and help alleviate discomfort
  • Ginger and lemongrass to rejuvenate the body

Sleepytime Throat Tamer ™

Sleepytime Tea
Ice cold orange juice, honey, lemon juice, salt water (for gargling)

I am beginning to feel sick; my immune system needs a boost.

  • Echinacea to support the immune system and the body’s ability to defend itself*
  • Vitamin C for its antioxidant properties
  • Zinc, an essential mineral that provides immune system support during cold season*
  • Aromas and flavors like eucalyptus and peppermint that make you feel better fast!

Echinacea Complete care®

Echinacea Tea

My stomach hurts and/or I’m feeling bloated.

  • Revitalizing fennel to quickly but gently calm your stomach
  • Soothing herbs like peppermint and chamomile that naturally assist digestion

Tummy Mint®

Tummy Mint Tea
Yogurt with active cultures, whole grains, water

I’m feeling run down.

  • Whole eleuthero root and Asian and American ginseng to sustain healthy levels of energy and stamina
  • Vitamins B6 and B12, which are essential for helping you cope with stress
  • Revitalizing and refreshing flavors like orange peel and spearmint

Ginseng Energy®

Ginseng Energy Tea
Oatmeal, berries, citrus fruit

I need to cleanse my body after over-indulging in fatty foods, alcohol or caffeine.

  • Milk thistle to cleanse and detoxify the body and promote healthy liver function*
  • Immune system-supporting Echinacea*
  • Cleansing botanicals like dandelion root, sarsaparilla root and red clover

Detox AM®

Detox AM Tea
Green leafy vegetables, water

I can’t sleep.

  • Tilia flower to quiet the mind and relax the body
  • Valerian, a trusted natural sleep aid
  • Calming herbs like chamomile and spearmint

Dairy products, nuts, carbohydrate-rich foods

I am feeling healthy and want to stay that way.

  • Vitamins A, C and E to maintain your body’s good health

A delicious health supporting Green Tea, such as Antioxidant Supplement Green Tea

    Upset stomach, headaches and um…loose bowels. All of which tend to happen when I’m stressed(all the time due to work).

    I’m blessed regardless. 🙂

  2. Madame Cur on February 8, 2010 at 8:45 pm

    I keep terrible allergies all year long with runny nose, coughing and sneezing. I would very much appreciate trying your tea.

  3. Emily GG on February 8, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    Between working part time, going to school full time, going to the gym to train for my 1/2 marathon, and still trying to be social I think that this is what I need:

    I’m feeling run down.

    * Whole eleuthero root and Asian and American ginseng to sustain healthy levels of energy and stamina
    * Vitamins B6 and B12, which are essential for helping you cope with stress
    * Revitalizing and refreshing flavors like orange peel and spearmint

    Ginseng Energy®

    Plus the oatmeal, berries and citrus fruit in this tea sound delicious.

  4. marie on February 8, 2010 at 8:46 pm

    I am feeling rather run down and would love to try a tea that would make that feeling go away!

  5. Cristina on February 8, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    I ate way too many fatty foods and beer yesterday for Superbowl and today my tummy is paying for it 🙁 I am feeling bloated, sluggish and very run-down today!!

  6. hemp jogger on February 8, 2010 at 8:58 pm

    could realllly use the ‘my tummy hurts/i’m feeling bloated.’ dealt w/ ibs nearly my entire life, and any relief is welcome! ppl must think i’m pregos sometimes, the way my belly bloats.
    and we can all use a little ‘i’m feeling run down’ pick-me-up!

  7. Laura on February 8, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    i cant sleep! for some reason i have the hardest time falling asleep lately

  8. JenSanders52 on February 8, 2010 at 9:06 pm

    I have a very difficult time falling asleep at night if I know I have to get up in the morning. Every night before bed I drink a hot, steaming cup of Celestial Seasoning Sleeptime Extra sleep. It almost always does the trick! I would love to try their other flavors!

  9. Andrea on February 8, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    I’m a little ashamed to say I could use some AM Detox after a Superbowl party I attended last night. I also have a super sensitive stomach, so Tummy Mint might work wonders for me. I love my tea and love natural remedies as well!

  10. Marisa on February 8, 2010 at 9:20 pm

    oh am i in need of some energy! I am looking forward to trying the ginseng energy even if i dont win this giveaway 😉

  11. lauren on February 8, 2010 at 9:27 pm

    oh i am desperate for tea!! i haven’t gotten much sleep my puupy is sick and i have been staying up to finish papers for school and it’s causing so many headaches!!!!

  12. Kelly Franks on February 8, 2010 at 9:28 pm

    I could definitely use some tea for tummy issues as well as an ENERGY boost!!

  13. Sara on February 8, 2010 at 9:58 pm

    I have indoor and outdoor allergies, so basically all year, all the time. And I have acid reflux, with a bad bout happening the past few days (heartburn and sour stomach, very painful actually). And who couldn’t use an energy boost? 🙂

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  14. Lindsey @ Sound Eats on February 8, 2010 at 10:04 pm

    I could use the Ginseng Energy or AM Detox. I need energy! My grandfather just had a stroke and a heart attack on Thursday, my sister-in-law had surgery on Friday and my 17-year-old brother-in-law has somehow (no one knows yet and tests are inconclusive) lost his memory and recollection of who people are. 🙁

    Obviously, I could use a little boost and detox to keep me mentally fresh and sane through these crazy, draining days.

  15. Allison on February 8, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    Feeling a little rundown and stressed out right now… Grad school is wearing me down!

  16. Andrea on February 8, 2010 at 10:08 pm

    I’m feeling run down (from this darn cold!) and have a scratchy throat 🙁

  17. Donna Porter on February 8, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    My symptons this week are stuffy nose, headache, tummy issues..and just overrall run down. Some of it is from the yearly cold/flu, some from the tons of volunteer work and taking care of three kids..including my youngest special needs kiddo. A cup of tea is just what the doctor ordered!

  18. molly b on February 8, 2010 at 10:10 pm

    STRESS — I’m working and completing the prerequisites for medical school…and it’s one busy life.

  19. Emily on February 8, 2010 at 10:11 pm

    Hey, such a great giveaway!!! Well, I’ve been staying in a hotel for a 4 day long training. Blah- run down from keeping a schedule in a different time zone and bloated (bloaty I like to say) from eating out more than usual.

  20. TonjaToi on February 8, 2010 at 10:13 pm

    Knock on wood – I am feeling fine and would like to stay this way!!! Gimme some Antioxidant Supplement Green Tea please! Could be I drink Green Tea everyday since I’m trying to get off coffee train (BTW… the green team is helping)

  21. Ashley on February 8, 2010 at 10:20 pm

    Feeling very run down from the stress of grad school. I could use some real rest as well and something for this headache!

  22. kelly o on February 8, 2010 at 10:41 pm

    I have no energy. It’s monday and I’m already completely sapped. Green tea is a savior!

  23. kellyo on February 8, 2010 at 10:47 pm

    I have NO energy – ever!!! Need some tea help!

  24. Colleen on February 8, 2010 at 11:23 pm

    I’ve had a dry scratchy throat for a few weeks now…I think its the dry air at work.

  25. Jannifer on February 8, 2010 at 11:26 pm

    I love Sleepytime Extra. I helps when me sleep through the night. I would like to try their green tea and ginseng tea for daytime energy!

  26. Kim on February 8, 2010 at 11:31 pm

    I have been over-indulging since…erm…last year (haha) and I desperately need to cleanse and boost my immune system at the same time because all the bad food and slothfulness had made me feel bloated, run down and just “mucky” on the inside. Plus, I love tea!

  27. Kelly Michelle on February 8, 2010 at 11:36 pm

    Celestial is my favorite tea in the whole world!!! I swear I am always bloated ugh, would love to try a natural remedy. Just drinking more water doesn’t work for me. also this semester has been crazy busy so I often feel just run down in general.

  28. s on February 9, 2010 at 12:15 am

    i guess my main thing is not getting to sleep on time. i’m a big fan of sleepytime / chamomile type teas for that reason.

  29. Steph on February 9, 2010 at 12:40 am

    I keep a box of Celestial tea at the office & a box at home. I love them! With all of this weird Texas weather (rain, cold .. blah)I have been catching colds left & right. Can’t wait to start feeling better! 🙂

  30. Paije on February 9, 2010 at 1:01 am

    I work night shifts and have SO MUCH trouble getting back into a regular sleep routine on my 4 days off!!

  31. Mariya on February 9, 2010 at 1:38 am

    I’ve been really fatigued lately and would love a little tea pick me up!

  32. Alisha on February 9, 2010 at 3:17 am

    i wake up in the morning with a sore, scratchy throat, which does not go away until late afternoon.
    I’m starting to get sick with the rain around here.
    I feel bloated after dinner for some reason
    although I don’t overeat :/
    Feeling run down since I average about 4-6hrs of sleep each night since I’m a student with high ambitions!

  33. Kelly J on February 9, 2010 at 5:52 am

    I love Celestial tea….I’m currently drinking the Holiday sugar cookie (I ordered a few boxes online because I couldn’t find it in the store) and the Vanilla Sleepytime. Yum !

  34. Lori H on February 9, 2010 at 6:24 am

    OMGoodness! I could use a remedy for stress, sleep deprivation, and trying to stay healthy! I am an avid tea drinker and love Celestial Seasonings!! Tea helps me relax, and warms me up on these cold evenings!

  35. Kimberly on February 9, 2010 at 6:52 am

    Help!! Started with H1N1, then it turned into Bronchitis! I work in healthcare so I had to take 3 days of sick leave:( There goes my winter vacation. Oh well. Sure could use some tea! And other goodies!!!

  36. Kathryn on February 9, 2010 at 7:18 am
