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/

The Simple Food Combination That DESTROYED Type 2 Diabetes In 74% Of Patients!

You will be AMAZED when you watch this incredible story that was recently featured by the world famous Dr. OZ.

Watch the video here:

diabetes

Rocco Wachman of Scottsdale, Arizona was overweight, diabetic and had the heart of an 85 year old… while being only in his 50's.

In just 28 days Rocco completely reversed his type 2 diabetes, got rid of his hypertension, acid reflux, successfully reduced the plaque on his arteries… came off his cholesterol and diabetes medication completely… and did all this just by changing his diet in a specific way

Watch the video to learn how he did it.

What’s even more astounding is that Dr. Michael Roizen, the chief medical consultant for the Dr. Oz show ASTONISHED viewers by calling this "Doable for everyone"!

Dr. Oz himself even stated that 90% of type 2 diabetics (over 200 MILLION people) can reverse their problem!

But how?

The secret is in the foods you eat, or more importantly, the foods you should AVOID.

Your diet is literally killing you. This is no exaggeration: Scientists have established firmly that chronic low-grade inflammation related to diet is responsible for the decrease of insulin sensitivity (aka insulin resistance) and high blood sugar leading to diabetes - as well as many other serious health problems.

Doctors at the International Council for Truth in Medicine are now revealing the truth about diabetes that has been suppressed for over 21 years.

Watch this video to learn how it is done - and how Big Pharma is hiding the truth about diabetes.

    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! 🙂

    I had a dentist tell me to put them on the places where he took my wisdom teeth out.

    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
