* If you suffer from eczema, bathing the affected skin areas in Rooibos tea or applying it with cottonwool can provide soothing relief.
Many of the unique anti-ageing and anti-allergic properties of Rooibos may be attributed to the unique blend of potent antioxidants found in Rooibos, says Dr Jeanine Marnewick, researcher at the Cape Peninsula University of
Technology.Researchers in South Africa and Japan were able to prove that Rooibos has the
ability to delay ageing, preserve fertility and, when applied externally, could even reduce and slow down skin cancer.
So in short, Rooibos can be used for achieving healthy skin; delaying the signs
of ageing; the treatment of acne, eczema, sunburn and tired eyes; while offering
shine for hair and even protecting your hair colour. And these are just some of
the cosmetic benefits. There is a long and varied list of benefits offered by
Rooibos, including the prevention of life-threatening diseases like cancer and
heart disease, providing relief from stomach problems, assisting with detoxing,
and even helping with anxiety or depression
