We live in a hectic, fast-paced world, I'm not telling you anything you aren't already experiencing! More than ever, we're all seeking to create a space for self-care. One avenue that more people are exploring is the world of herbs, specifically wellness herbal blends.
Recently, there has been a significant surge in the popularity of herbal wellness tea blends. Blends for stress relief and blends to aid with cold and flu symptoms haven been of paramount importance recently as well as blends for overall well-being and a variety of specific ailments.
I started my journey of herbal exploration in my mid-20's when I discovered an online class called "The Science & Art of Herbalism" with Rosemary Gladstar. The impact this class had on my life was immense.
In the mid-90's I started developing herbal blends for Simpson & Vail. Some of my earliest "wellness" blends were Moonlight Snooze and Echinacea Blend. Today we offer 12 herbal blends in the wellness line as well as a vast array of herbal blends that are formulated purely for sipping enjoyment.
Our Wellness line is comprised of blends for over-all health, detoxing, cold and flu symptoms, energy and de-stressing. Each herb has been carefully chosen for their health benefits.
Our line of Herbal Benefits blends are:
One thing to keep in mind if you are new to the world of herbs: Plants are very powerful medicines. As with all herbal tisanes that we sell, we recommend that you research the herbs and check with your healthcare provider prior to drinking, especially if you have a specific health concern or are taking medication. It’s easy to think that because it’s “just a plant” it is safe for consumption regardless of one’s medical history. This is, however, not the case.
Also, arm yourself with knowledge. There are many credible websites offering information and advice about herbal products. I tend to frequent medical websites such as the Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins among others. I also have a library of books written by experienced herbal practitioners that I use as reference material. There is quite a lot of information on the internet, and the best advice I can offer is to check article sources and become as informed as possible about any product you ingest.
To sum up, herbs offer a diverse array of benefits, from stress relief to immune support and more. Adding some of these natural remedies can contribute to a healthier more positive lifestyle.
We hope that you enjoy these blends! Please contact us if you have any questions.
