Celestial Seasonings Wellness pack Giveaway

 

moreGoods

Life has picked up in a really great way! I've been super busy, having fun and still takin care of myself. I was actually lucky enough to receive an amazing wellness pack from Celestial Seasonings (could not have come at a better time I might add!) filled with lots of goodies to help keep you feelin’ great.

This time of year I think can be particularly tough. Season changes always bring about lots of stress to the immune system. Not to mention our hectic lifestyles on top of it all. I know everyone is dealing with some insane schedules right now. Yikes! So all you can do is take of yourself the best that you can. I always try to stay away traditional meds as much as possible and I look to foods and teas as a way to keep healthy. When I got this very generous box of goods from celestial seasonings it was exactly what I needed!

It was jammed pack with a variety of their wellness teas and accessories! Perfect! Pretty much everything you need. Honey sticks, cool mug, soothing lip balm, cute bear and some cool reads. Oh yeah and fabulous tea!

greenTea

Could not wait! I tore into some of their green teas first. I tested out the Honey Lemon Ginseng Green tea and it is delicious. Really comforting and soothing. Not too overpowering, nice taste. The green tea I tried next was just as good. Green tea is just always delicious I think. There is a ton of great information out as to the benefits of including green tea into your diet. I try to drink 2-3 cups per day personally!

I've always been a fan of the sleepytime teas that they have, so this one was a given winner for me. Minty, lemony and calming.

I was really curious about the Echinacea Complete Care tea. I remember when I was little my mom would give me these big Echinacea tablets whenever we started to get sick. (Anyone ever take these?) They were sssoo chalky and strong in taste that I used to have to choke them down. This tea however tasted fantastic. It has a strong peppermint smell when you open the box but there is only a light aftertaste of mint in the tea itself. It has a very clean taste. I like the licorice that is added in as well. It really shines through. Yummy!

The tummy mint was also fabulous. I'm really finding that I like peppermint tea more and more. Peppermint has been used to help treat digestive issues but I also find that it helps with my night time cravings and calms me down after a busy day.

I really enjoyed these teas not because they just taste fantastic but they also are formulated for helping you stay healthy and balanced.

And just in case your curious about certain herbs and how they alleviate certain symptoms the book, Herbs for Health and Happiness, is a really interesting read. I loved paging through it and just looking up certain herbs and learning about what they are used to treat. They have it sectioned off into certain ailments such as calming an upset stomach and building a healthy heart. Great little reference book to have!

Overall awesome wellness pack! I'm such a huge fan of their products anyways so this was so cool to be able to try out new teas. The people at Celestial Seasonings also have offered to pass along a wellness pack to one of my readers. How awesome!

  1. my favorite tea is jasmine green tea! love it with a little bit of almond milk and agave. the best way to relieve stress and seasonal colds is definitely to drink a lotttt of fluids, get all your nutrients... i also find that during the cold of winter, soaking your feet in hot water can really get your blood pumping and also keep you warm - i think this helps with both stress and colds!

  7. I'm glad to know you're taking it easy when things are crazy! Your posts have been missed though!

    I prevent getting sick by washing my hands A LOT (I work with kids a few days a week), eating lots of fruits and veggies, and getting plenty of sleep. I relieve stress by working out and reading. It's all been working - haven't been sick at all this winter :)

  27. Hi H have been following your blog for about a month now. I also added you to my google reader. My favorite tea is all herbal teas. I like to have a variety of different herbal teas. The best way to ward off colds or sickness is too exercise, do yoga, meditate, take bubble baths, eat well, get enough sleep, wash your hands often and drink lots of fluids and too stay positive. Camomille is a great tea for sleepy time. It's so soothing. I'm glad your back to blogging. Missed you. :)

  28. What a fantastic pack of goodies! I'll admit, I'm not a big tea drinker, so I'm not even going to enter the giveaway because it wouldn't really be fair to others. But when I am stressed, I like to sit down with a book, and a beer!! haha, yeah, the RD likes to relax with her favorite beer :) I don't drink excessively to "eliminate stress", just one beer is all I need! It's health moderate drinking ;)
    I hope you are doing well. I'm trying to do the same as you, and stay healthy even when life is really picking up. It's hard, but doable.
