for Unique cocktails & refreshing drinks
A cocktail shrub is a sweetened, fruit and vinegar based syrup used as an additive to cocktails. Known for a flavor that's both tart and sweet, shrubs stimulate the appetite while quenching thirst. Can be enjoyed in cocktails, or in soda or seltzer water as a spritz.
Our favorite way to enjoy this month:
Herbal Blends For Health & Wellness
Herbal tea is an emotionally and physically healing tool that can be easily integrated into your hectic schedule. Unlike black or green tea, which is only brewed from leaves, herbal teas can be prepared from steeping the leaves, stems, flowers, roots, bark or rhizomes of herbs.
Whether it’s a refreshing blend to support you throughout the day, or a soothing cup to relax you before sleep, our herbal blends are a powerful ally in natural healing. Try our Relief Tea for recoveries from overindulgence, our Clean Tea for natural digestive relief, or our Skin Serene Tea for naturally healthy, glowing skin from the inside out!
Steams & salves
FACIAL & Nasal STEAMS
Our facial and nasal steams contain blends of fresh herbs like Eucalyptus and Lavender that soothe the skin and relieve congestion. Enjoy as a facial steam by placing a heaping spoonful in a bowl of hot water, or as a fragrant addition to a hot bath.
New Dawn Skin Salve
Calendula is a gentle, but powerful, skin-healing herb that soothes many skin conditions such as eczema, diaper rash, psoriasis, and acne. Jojoba and Castor Oils easily blend with skin's natural state, while Angelica Root and Rose essential oils add antimicrobial and redness reducing properties. Soothing skin salve best for dry, irritated, or sensitive skin. Apply liberally. Smells amazing!
Skin Serene Blemish Oil
This light, yet powerful oil helps relieve skin difficulties such as acne blemishes, ingrown hairs, ingrown nails, and general redness/irritation. The Jojoba and Grape seed base acts as a moisturizer incredibly similar to your skins own natural sebum, while the concentrated Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils work to battle the blemish. Calendula and Chamomile flower essences aid in the healing process, gently soothing emotional tension and blockage.
Gently apply directly to your blemish throughout the day (for acne pimples, cleanse the area first before applying for best results) and watch your skin heal! Can be followed by the Terra Luna New Dawn skin salve for further herbal healing!
Dried herbs wrapped in twine. Sage, (both common and white varietals) are traditionally burned in purification and cleansing rituals.
