After a season of deep growth, it is important that we take the time to sit still, reflect, let the lessons learned really take foundation in our spirit. And yet, we must not linger too long here. This is a pause, not a full stop. Allow the plant spirits in this Four of Cups inspired tea blend to move you into fruitful introspection.

BREAKTHROUGH {Meditative Tarot Tea}

I’m still riding this wonderful wave of energy granted by the New Moon in Aries. I offer up a tea that I blended on instinct while sitting with the new moon. It was one of those blends that was too good not to share and it just so happened to fit the King of Wands perfectly. It’s got that perfect mix of energy and inspiration and risk and manifestation and I want you to enjoy it as much as I did.

Harness the King of Wands’ energy with Breakthrough and take the leap forward. This blend guides you to take the chance on yourself and reminds you betting on your spirit is always the safest bet. Let this magic move you into the confidence needed to break through any obstacles that come to initiate your growth.

Message of the day: Honor your soul spirit today. Indulge in sweet soul care and meet yourself with deep love.

As my hiatus’ end draws near I’m thinking about what it means to cater to my reflection and reach all the parts of me that get ignored in the daily grind and keep the care I gave myself these past few days going.

How about a sweet rooting tea blend to assist in that important work? Ginger, Cinnamon, Turmeric, Ashwagandha, and a touch of Hibiscus.

Itchy Throat Easing Tea

Beloved readers, you and I are going to get through this cold together. Thank you for hanging in there with me.

I’m starting to suspect something a little stronger than a common cold- a sinus infection perhaps with the way my eyes, cheekbones, and teeth ache. I also woke up with an itchy throat which is usually a heads up that a cough is coming at me soon.

I hate coughs. More than the incessant runny nose, I absolutely hate coughs. I had respiratory issues as a child so non-stop coughing is far too familiar and I do my best to avoid it when possible. The painful sore throat and aching ribs are my cold & flu nightmare. So of course, I reached for my herb cabinet and so far so good, this little infusion recipe is keeping the cough at bay.

Immune Boost Tea to Get Through Cold & Flu Season

Educators of the world unite! And drink lots of tea and other vitamin c rich drinks. Whether you’re a teacher, tutor, instructional aide, professor, teaching assistant, principal, or counselor you are familiar with how much of a petri dish educational institutions can be. I’ve caught a cold twice now- of different varieties each time and I’m sick of it. Sick of being sick, I’ve decided to make an infusion that should at least help keep me protected (along with other dietary additions and changes) and help me along with my current illness.

First things first, if you have the flu (and you’ll know when you have it, trust me) go get help. I’m all about natural medicine and I’m also aware that flus can quickly become dangerous, especially for the young and old.

If you have a cold, you’ve got a bit more leeway as the remedies for that are generally lots of rest, water, and vitamins. Oh and here’s a tea recipe to help move that along! Continue reading
