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: https://naturehacks.com/house-and-home/10-cool-things-you-can-do-with-tea-bags/
