Yes, to be clear. To be open and moving and free. These are the qualities this tea brings in as our bodies awake from their winter stagnation. Nettles, dandelion and cleavers are all supporting our bodies to flush out the old and make way for the new. These spring weeds, plus alfalfa, make a mineral packed powerhouse of spring time energy. Holy basil (tied with nettles for first place as my favorite herb) is the great balancer in a group of plants known as adaptogens. Adaptogens support our bodies to adapt to stress of any kind (even the simple stress of a change of season). It also supports immune and respiratory function and sharpens memory. The sage helps clear out the sinuses and the licorice enhances the action of all the other herbs, plus adds its silky sweetness to balance all that green vitality. Yum.
Steep 1 Tbsp per cup of hot water for 20+ minutes, covered. The longer it is steeped, the more minerals are extracted. You can even let it steep overnight.
This is a blend of cooling and nourishing herbs, providing extra vitamins and minerals for these active months, helping you shine to your full radiant potential. The spearmint, lemongrass, lemon balm, hibiscus and orange peel give this blend a cool and fruity energy that’s delicious as an iced tea. The raspberry leaf, alfalfa, and red clover are super high in Vitamin C and A, the B Vitamins, iron and calcium. I added just a pinch of freshly dried stevia leaves for a subtle sweetness. Feel free to add honey for a sweet iced tea.
Steep 1 Tbsp. per cup of boiling water for at least 20 minutes with a lid. The longer you steep it, the more minerals will be infused into the water, and I think the taste improves. You can even steep it overnight for the full nutrient value. And try it with cold water as a sun tea!
This autumn is all about unconditional love. I’ve created three products that are designed to help lift the heart and wrap you in a big hug, reminding you that you are loved, held and appreciated. This tea blend highlights one my favorite herbs, Tulsi (aka Holy Basil), which is the great balancer, helping the body adapt to stressors of all kinds. So as your body comes into greater balance, the other herbs help to open and support the heart. Hawthorn strengthens the physical heart and helps to regulate blood pressure, as well as helping to soothe the emotional heart and bring a sense of open-hearted well-being. Damiana is often thought of as an aphrodisiac, but is also a powerful nervine, helping to soothe symptoms of stress, anxiety, and depression. It is really an herb to promote self-love.
So blessings on your dear heart. May you feel held in unconditional love and support.

This is my daughter’s favorite tea. It has warming spices in it, making it a perfect blend for the cold weather. The rooibos adds a full richness to the flavor and a big antioxidant boost. Then I added sleepy time herbs to make it a relaxing end of the day way to unwind. It is very soothing to the nerves, calming to the belly and yummy to the taste buds! Plus I put in mugwort to enhance dreams and aid in remembering them. So sweet dreams, friends!
Suggested Use: Steep 1 Tbsp per cup of hot water for at least 20 minutes. Adjust amount of tea and time to taste. Spice increases with time!
