October 2018 - Autumn

I agree with George Eliot who said “Delicious autumn! My very soul is wedded to it, and if I were a bird I would fly about the earth seeking the successive autumns.” Not only does Autumn bring a break in the Summer heat, but the days feel as if they slow, we prepare for Winter stillness and look inward to protect our bodies from the coming cold.


Breath / Throat / Lung tea blend

Ingredients: Monarda (Bee Balm / Monarda didyma) Hyssop (Hyssopus angustifolius), Elderflower (Sambucus nigra)

Monarda presents as a stunning red flower that brings brightness to any garden and as an antimicrobial herb, it works wonderfully as a tea or infused honey on a sore and inflamed throat. As a diaphoretic herb, it can support the fever process by increasing internal warmth while someone feels cold and is shivering. Hyssop is a tool to gargle away a sore throat. Hyssop may work by acting as an expectorant to loosen mucous and by activating the immune system to promote fever and fight off infection. Elderflower is a beneficial medicine during colds and flus, sinus infections, and other respiratory disturbances. Drink anytime your throat or chest need support.
