Throughout my second pregnancy, I have been on a quest to find natural alternatives to help relieve my two most frustrating symptoms: stretchmarks and tiredness. When Indigo Herbs* got in touch to ask me if I’d like to try their Organic Matcha Tea Powder AND Organic Coconut Oil I jumped at the chance. Could these two products be the natural and healthy remedies I’d been searching for?
Who are Indigo Herbs?
Indigo Herbs supply a broad range of natural health ingredients including herbs, loose teas, super-foods, wholefoods and aromatherapy oils.

Their website also contains a natural health guide and recipe collection if, like me, you are a little clueless when it comes to natural health ingredients and their benefits.
Why Organic Matcha Tea Powder?
There are many health benefits packed inside this re-sealable pouch of Organic Matcha Powder (£11.99 | 50g). Matcha Powder is loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It contains almost the full spectrum of B Vitamins, which are essential to support brain and nervous system health whilst reducing tiredness and fatigue. This blend contains the highest ceremonial grade Japanese matcha which also claims to fortify the immune system and detoxify the body effectively and naturally.
Brewing My First GREEN Cuppa…
A shot of this gorgeous emerald powder can be added to juice or water, added to your smoothie or (my personal favourite) added to hot water and honey. It doesn’t actually taste that much different from regular tea so I’m not too sure why a lot of people turn their nose up at just the thought of green tea. I have a sweet tooth so adding a little honey to combat the savoury grassy taste is a must for me. I’ve realised that pouring a cup of coffee has become more of a habit than a necessity. It’s become part of my routine to reach for a mug or pop into Starbucks, especially when I’m sitting down to begin work or first thing in the morning. Swapping my caramel latte for a warm mug of green tea hasn’t been too difficult. It’s nice to actually put something in my body that isn’t processed and artificial. I have already noticed a boost in my energy levels but I’m looking forward to discovering the long-term health benefits over the next couple of months.
A Multi-Tasking Miracle Worker?
We’ve all read about the huge list of health benefits and uses for coconut oil. Is there anything it can’t do? You can cook with it, spread it on your toast, blend it into your smoothies, remove your makeup with it and, apparently, as a nappy rash reliever.
