Ever wondered why we deliver some of our traditional plant medicine in a tea? Taking medicinal plants as a tea is one of the most effective ways to get their benefits. Read on to find out why:
Life humans, plants are complex organisms. Plants are sophisticated and have many active constituents that can support the body in a number of different ways. Active constituents are substances in a plant that have a therapeutic effect on the body. The way these constituents work in the body can vary depending on how they're extracted from the plant. However, evidence tells us that the best way to get the benefits from a plant, is to keep it whole. We use plants in our teas which contain high amounts of water-soluble constituents. Therefore, hot water extraction is the most effective way to ingest these plants.
The active constituents in the plants we use in our teas are highly bio-available in a tea. This means that your body gets more of the available nutrients, and faster. They go directly into the blood stream and into the cells within a matter of minutes.
No toxic load
Tablets can be hard for the body to break down due to the many fillers, binding and preservative agents used, causing stress on the digestive and detoxification organs as your body tries to process them. Medicinal teas are hypo-allergenic, sugar-free, and suitable for the most sensitive systems. Learn more about toxic load here.
Medicinal teas hydrate the body as effectively as water with added therapeutic benefits. They are perfect for daily rituals of self-care.
Easy to swallow
If you have trouble swallowing pills, you're not alone! Artemis medicinal teas are easy to drink and are ideal for children, the elderly, or those who are very ill.

As long as dosage and brewing instructions have been followed, feel free to use our teas in a way that works for you and your family.
Medicinal teas bring mindfulness to self-care. It takes a little time to make a cup of tea but, a few minutes aside to be present can make all the difference. We believe that true wellness is achieved holistically. While you sip on your favourite Artemis tea, scan your body. Check in with yourself. Where are you holding tension? What's keeping your mind busy? Think about how the tea is going to help you and enjoy these few moments of self-care.
What's more, art the recommended dose, our teas are suitable for all ages, during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and alongside pharmaceutical drugs.
