Herbs Are So Much More Than Just Flavor
Herbs have been used since ancient times for their medicinal properties, mostly concentrated into teas and tinctures. More recently, their healthful value as a food ingredient has been realized. For one, herbs add a burst of flavor to food, allowing you to cut back on salt without sacrificing taste. And several herbs, including parsley, have significant amounts of the essential vitamins A, C and K.
The Health Benefits of Herbs
Effective and safe, medicinal herbs can be used to naturally fortify your body against common upsets and ailments. Herbs have been discovered and used in traditional medicine practices since prehistoric times. Plants synthesise hundreds of chemical compounds for functions including defence against insects, fungi, and diseases.
Healing Our Bodies Naturally
We can change our lives simply by modifying how how we eat and how we treat our illnesses. A cup of tea a day may help with anxiety, stress, and even help clear our thought process.
Scatterbrained Tea includes dries Basil, Lemon Balm, Chamomile, and Rosemary. The Basil, Lemon Balm, Chamomile, and Lavender help with anxiety, depressions, and insomnia while the Rosemary helps improve concentration and memory. These 8 oz tins will produce approximately 15 cups of tea.
A-Choo Be Gone Tea
Ah-Choo Be Gone Tea is a simple mix of stinging nettle leaves (which act as an antihistamine), Oregon grape root (which has a drying effect on mucus glands), and Elderberries (which are believed to help boost the body’s natural immune response). And even if the tea didn’t work on your allergies, it might be just as beneficial to drink as a replacement for your morning coffee since it’s extremely high in nutrients – particularly vitamin A, various B vitamins (including b-1, B-2, B-3, and B-5), vitamin C, amino acids, calcium, fatty acids, folic acid, iron, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and potassium. These 8 oz tins will produce approximately 15 cups of tea.
Changing the definition of “pill”
Today’s definition of a pill only gets rid of the symptoms, but what if the pills you took could actually solve the underlying problem? The medication prescribed in today’s world is an immediate fix that only masks the real problem. But what if a pill full of nature’s goodness could solve the deeper problem if you only allowed it more time?
We put ground Goldenseal Root, Echinacea Root, Marsh Mallow Root, Echinacea Root, and Cayenne Pepper and put them in vegetable capsules to help combat those winter colds.
These cinnamon ginger pills with marsh mallow are the perfect digestive aids to help ease stomach cramps, bloating, upset stomachs, and motion sickness.
Researching the Power of Nature
Cayenne is a natural substance that increase circulation in the body, and circulation can relieve sore joints and tight muscles. It can even warm cold hands and feet.
Jack Be Nimble
Jack Be Nimble is Cayenne and Burdock Root infused olive oil with a bit of peppermint to sweeten the smell.
UN-cracked is a simple combination of beeswax, calendula infused grapeseed oil, and coconut oil that moisturizes and conditions the skin. The lavender oil adds a wonderful soothing smell, and the turmeric adds a splash of yellow color. It can be used as a lotion, as a lip balm, or a facial moisturizer.
Ouch! I Did It Again
Ouch! I did it again is a plantain, yarrow, and burdock root salve that helps clean, clot blood, and promote skin regeneration. Olive Oil and beeswax provide the base for these three herbs to work together to heal cuts, wounds, and rashes.
Be Aware of How Things are Made
Be aware of not only everything that you eat, but also how it’s made. We make our herbal tinctures with dried herbs, apple cider vinegar, and the good, old-fashioned sun.
Sweet Dreams is made with Apple Cider Vinegar, Valerian, Skullcap, Hops Strobile, & Lavender Flower. This wonderful concoction of herbs will not only help you sleep, it will help you stay asleep. But you must get over the taste and stay diligent in taking it. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and old habits die hard.
Hot Mess is made with Apple Cider Vinegar, Burdock Root, Dandelion Root, Cinnamon Bark, and Hawthorn Berries. This Mixture of Herbs will help balance heat in the body. Cooling your liver is sometimes very important If you have short temper, overactive hormones, or maybe skin related imbalances, this could be for you! To much heat in your liver can cause heart problems down the road.
Remember When contains the powerful combination of ginkgo and gotu kola leaf, rosemary, peppermint, and ginger. The research behind gotu kola leaf suggests that it improves both learning and memory by increasing antioxidant levels in the blood. The extract from ginkgo leaves is used as a dietary supplement for many conditions, including dementia, eye problems, intermittent claudication (leg pain caused by narrowing arteries), tinnitus, and other health problems. Rosemary, on the other hand, reduces the oxidative damage to the brain with it’s powerful antioxidant activity. And let’s not forget ginger that acts as an anti-inflammatory. This anti-inflammatory property is important since many brain disorders including depression, anxiety, ADHD, brain fog, and Alzheimer’s are linked to chronic inflammation of the brain.
Where the Wild Things Go
Where the Wild Things Go has three important ingredients: Lemon Balm, Gingko Leaf, and Valerian. These potent herbs calm the mind, focus the mind, and relax the body. This is why this formula was intended to target those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. It’s believed that lemon balm makes the neurotransmitter gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) more readily accessible in the brain. (GABA helps regulate your body’s stress response.) Gingko Leaf Valerian includes the compounds valerenic acid, isovaleric acid and a variety of antioxidants which inhibit excessive activity in the amygdala, a part of the brain that processes fear and strong emotional responses to stress. Researchers believe that ginkgo improves cognitive function because it promotes good blood circulation in the brain and protects the brain and other parts from neuronal damage.
