SUSTAINABILITY MISSION: Products come packaged in glass or paper. I avoid using plastic whenever possible. Orders ship with fully compostable packing materials or in compost mailers.
WILDCRAFTED CONNECTION. All of my products are made with the finest ethically wildcrafted or chemical/pesticide-free botanicals and oils. I craft in a way that resonates with my love for this planet, opting for small artisan-batched products. Powerful botanical blends with no fillers using the simplest amount of ingredients for maximum efficacy. Take care of yourselves, dear ones, in whatever way that may look like
Directions: Bring water to a boil, pour over the loose tea. Use 1 tsp or more per 8 oz. of water depending on how strong you like your tea. Let the tea steep for 10 minutes. Keeping the tea covered while steeping will lock in more aromatics, resulting in a more fragrant cup. Pour through a strainer and enjoy.
K E Y I N G R E D I E N T S
Rose: One of the best-loved plants for the heart. Rose can allow movement of energy through the heart acting as a soother to the body and spirit. As a thorned plant, rose can help establish healthy boundaries.
Hawthorn: historically used for all manner of heart ailments. A member of the rose family, hawthorn, is well-loved by herbalists and scientists alike for its proven benefits when dealing with the heart.
Pedicularis: If you've followed me for any length of time, you are probably familiar with my love of Pedicularis. Now, more than ever, I am finding generous support with this powerful herb.
Often used for skeletal muscle pain, I find this plant to be phenomenal for emotional distress and an innate ability to help us feel more centered and grounded without feeling impaired.
Pedicularis is a semi-parasitic plant, meaning it has a relationship with the root system of the host plant. Siphoning nutrients from these root systems, Pedicularis also taps into the ancient information they hold, the wisdom of the forest. I do not find it surprising that Pedicularis works so well on back pain, what I would consider our "root" system.
If you've used the "Roots" body oil, this tea will have a similar action.
I've used three species of Pedicularis in this tea, some rose and hawthorn to support the heart and linden for its calming, uplifting presence.
