10 Amazing Uses Of Used Tea BagsImage – NatureHacks.com

Most people just toss the teabag when they are done making the tea – however we discovered a fantastic page listing 10 top uses of used tea bags. Some of these benefits were quite surprising! The link to the original list follows at the end of our additional notes.

Tea is made from the leaves of the tea plant (Camillia sinensis). In a 2007 study, tea was found to contain over 700 different phytochemicals, many of which are recognized for their potential to fight disease. Among these compounds, the most widely-recognized and well-understood are flavinoids, amino acids, vitamins and polysaccharides. Tea varieties–green, black, white and oolong–were found to contain high concentrations of antioxidants.

Many of the herbal benefits derived from the used teabags are from the tannins in the tea – so if you are going to do this, note that for best results you will want to use black, green or white tea, as opposed to a herbal tea made with some other herb or fruit.

Having said that, herbal tea bags may of course have herbal benefits of their own and are likely to have some interesting uses. If you are curious about this you could look up the herb / fruit from your herbal tea on our website and see if you can get some ideas!

We did a little additional research and found some more unusual and interesting uses for teabags that people are suggesting online (note – we haven’t tested these):
1. Soothe nipples for the first few days of breastfeeding.
2. Hair dye.
3. Great for Fuscias in the garden. When they start to compost just cover with a little soil and start again.
4. Canker sores (topical application)
5. Foot soak for fungal infections.
6. Dry them thoroughly and they can be used as fire starting materials!

Has anyone used any of these? If so, please let us know in the comments – and of course please let us know any other interesting teabag uses.

Ok here’s the link to the full list: http://naturehacks.com/house-and-home/10-cool-things-you-can-do-with-tea-bags/

Lost Ways Of Survival Video

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

>> Click here to find out about them now

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:

    cold used tea bags are great for soothing sore or tired eyes

    i had surgery on a tender part of the female anatomy. To prevent infection and promote scarless healing the hospital gave me a list of different sits baths to take. Tea bags in the bath (1/2 dozen or so) soaking for 20 minutes will prevent infection, soften the forming scab and lift it off the wound. Worked wonderfully!

    Used teabags work well inside a nursing pad to relieve soreness from breastfeeding, cracked nipples, or mastitis. Also, the fuzzy side of a geranium leaf! 🙂

    Place a damp tea bag in each smelly shoe, odor gone!

    If you live in a high humidity area where metal rusts quickly (even stainless steel), use a left over, but still damp, teabag to wipe over the metal. It will keep the item from rusting as quickly. Repeat once per month and your small appliance or whatever else you are treating will last much longer without rusting.

    a damp tea bag works great to sooth insects bites
