Lemongrass, lemon balm, lemon verbena, stevia leaf
LEMON LOVE is our favourite pick me up blend has three star lemon herbs. A calming yet energizing, cloud busting mood lifter of a beverage. We think this herbal tisane blend has superpowers. Blended like a perfume- with a low note of lemongrass which has the staying power, the middle note of lemon balm with its round, greenish lemon scent, and the top note of lemon verbena which adds a kick of a lemon candy to the mix.
All of these lemon herbs have been repeatedly proven to mitigate stress, anxiety and feeling down. If nothing ails you- just brew it for the bit of sunshine it will add to your day. As perfect in a warm mug as it is chilled on a hot day.
Spearmint, Orange Mint, Sunflower Petals, Chocolate Mint, Nettle Seeds, Mandarin Peel
RISE is a real pick me up drink. Led by the gentleness of spearmint and offering a gentle punch of seriously refreshing chocolate mint. The nettle seeds are a zippy addition that support your adrenals and feel like a friend you can lean on when you feel too tired to keep going without support.
grounding- quieting- settling
Anise Hyssop, Tulsi Basil, Pineapple Sage
CENTRE is a smooth, herbaceous, round bodied tisane. Anise hyssop is a warming, fruity herb that offers a touch of sweetness while helping calm your nervous system. Tulsi and Pineapple Sage are adaptogenic herbs, which means they help your body adapt to stress. Life is full of little stressors that over time can exhaust our nervous systems and make every challenge feel bigger than it needs to be. Adaptogenic herbs help your body systems become more resilient and capable to handle stresses- so you don’t circle into the tornado of anxiety or the depths of exhaustion. The ritual of making a pot of tea and wrapping your hands around a steaming mug will also help quiet your mind and bring you back to your centre.
Sage, Ginger Stem, Red Clover, Echinacea Flowers, Oregano, Chickweed, Thyme, Mullein
BREATHE blend feels like a warm hug. This herbal tisane addresses every kind of respiratory distress. Are you congested? Do you feel cold? Do you have a cough that is productive? Maybe it is dry or spastic? Or perhaps you are only troubled at night with a deep barking cough? This blend will help you. We prefer to drink it with honey which also soothes. This blend has herbs that will clear your respiratory pathways, as well as herbs to support the rest of your body to heal.
Lemongrass, Calendula, Rose Petals, Chamomile, Lavender
UNWIND is for when you feel a strong pull to slow down to be able to fully settle in your little nest. Stillness. Quiet. That place where BEING is all that needs happen. You can’t just come to a full stop though. It is a process of unwinding and this blend is perfect for that. Whether it is the end of your growing season, your Friday night or the middle of the day- this blend will slowly tease out the urgency of striving and help you come back to yourself.
Lemongrass is the base ingredient of this blend is a powerful nervine, acting as a tonic to unfrazzle your nervous system. With the gentle touch of some deeply relaxing florals to support.
Pair it with the Unwind Body Oil and some Lavender Hydrosol and you might need some to carry you to your bed.
