After many years (14 to be exact) of sitting on the back burner of something
I just have to do…. Here it is!
28 35 Organic Tea and Herbal blends!
7 herbal blends (each blend contains fruits, roots, flowers & leaves) in 4 bases
of organic Dark tea, White tea, Green tea & Nettle (& now Rooibos)
Since I discovered I would feel a sensation in a part of my body while drinking a tincture of a particular plant – I started experimenting with different herbs and which plant was felt on a particular part of the body. I then thought that maybe this plant energy was triggering an energetic pattern that was similar to or correlated with a particular Chakra.
I then went and checked what herbalists claimed that that plant was used for in treating an illness attached to an organ. I did this with all the herbs I am using in the blends and more so, as many are on this site but I haven’t recorded them all here. I would ‘cup’ them first (as a tea sommelier would) write down the locations of where I felt them and then go online or check them in my herbal books to see if it matched. Which they did. Many plants I tried I had no idea what they were suppose to be good for until I looked them up.
For example I now use Astragalus in all the teas as a ‘root’ component. I didn’t know though at the time I tried it that is was an adaptogen and that is why I had felt it all through the chakra’s thus the body. I originally though oh this one is going to be harder to figure out or I guess I am out of sync today. I put it down, tried the next one. Then came back same thing…. hmmm… ok. Try something else came back – still not doing anything but going through all the body. lol
Ya Ok now I know that’s what an adaptogen is suppose to do! go figure.
Originally I choose it for its visual appeal. 1st it being a root (need at root in all my blends) it was light and fluffy and almost white – white goes with everything. Well so it seems does Astragalus.
