Drinking chrysanthemum tea or use it on your skin will reduce wrinkles and blemishes, helps decrease skin discolouration, eliminate puffiness.
With it’s antiseptic and anti-inflammatory effect, it is often used to help reduce swelling and redness of acne.
Both ancient and modern Chinese culture believes that chrysanthemum relieves the body of heat (heat can be roughly translated into an overabundance of protein and acidity in the body, which results in acne, excessive sweating, clogged pores and general poor health.)
So chrysanthemum tea, a delicious floral golden brew, is believed to make one “glow from within”.
While it sounds cheesy, there is actually fairly sound science behind this claim.
The golden tea is rich in antioxidants and is allergy friendly.
So go ahead and make yourself a pot (it’s inexpensive) but do not expect it to replace botox.
