Taking tisanes for specific purposes, such as strengthening your hair and nails, is nothing new. Since practically the dawn of time, herbalists, druids, shaman, natural medicine practitioners, Ayurvedic adherents and more have sought out special herbs and plants known for their healing and restorative qualities.
So, it is, with Hair + Nails Bamboo Camomile tisane. While many of us might associate bamboo with pandas or furniture, bamboo is actually a great natural source of silica, a micronutrient that is crucial for the healthy growth and development of our bodies. In fact, silica is used by every single cell in our bodies to promote growth.
Think about when you were younger, or if you have young people in your life. Typically, young people have lush, silky hair, soft skin and perfect nails. Why? When we're young, our bodies start out with large amounts of silica that deplete as we age. As it goes, our hair loses its radiance, our nails lose their shine and our skin loses its luster - such is life.
Thankfully, we can do something about it. This fragrant, caffeine-free tisane of bamboo leaves, blended with chamomile (a frequent additive to shampoos due to its ability to add shine to hair), pineapple and cornflowers offers a delicious way to up your intake of silica. Brew a pot, take a sip and give your body the boost it needs.
Brewing Instructions: Warm the cup/pot with hot water. Pour freshly drawn boiling water over 1 rounded teaspoon (2.5 g) of leaves per cup and steep for 5 minutes. Enjoy!
