Made from the ground leaves of eucalyptus, this herbal tea has been used to ease bronchitis, and may lower blood sugar, but researchers warn there’s not enough scientific evidence to prove its benefits. (It may lower blood sugar too much, and should not be taken for several weeks prior to surgery.) Do not use it without consulting your doctor, and do not give it to children.
