Spearmint, Marshmallow, Hibiscus, Lemon peel 2 oz
Steep 1-2 tbsp of herbs in 4 cups of water a few times a week for cellular hydration.
Spearmint Mentha Spicata is a difficult herb to categorize in terms of a ruling planet. It is adaptable and contains a wide array of properties and functions. As a nervine, it balances cortisol production, female reproductive hormones, regulates blood sugar and aids in memory. The mythos surrounding spearmint is sad but relatable. Menthe was a Greek nymph loved by Hades before Persephone came on the scene. She was subsequently turned into a mint plant with leaves resembling weapons of revenge. We’re on your side Menthe. Spearmint’s mythos connects this medicine to the underworld, self-valuation and courage.
Marshmallow Root Althaea officinalis (Venus + the Moon) Marshmallow has a strong affinity to the element water. It is deeply hydrating and nourishes the mucosal tissues which include the urinary and reproductive systems. Marshmallow’s name is derived from the Greek word altho meaning “ to cure” and indeed, this herb's healing powers are considerable and comprehensive. She is a nervine, expectorant, diuretic, antimicrobial, anti inflammatory, and hormone regulator. Marshmallow’s nature is cooling, soothing, gentle and compassionate.
Hibiscus Rosa sinensis (Venus + Mars) Here to stoke your passion and spark your creative nature. The appearance of this flower depicts the intricate balance of masculine and feminine and the generative nature of humans. Hibiscus tones the physiologic mechanisms engaged in birth, death, fertility, love, beauty and permanent renewal. This is a traditional remedy for elevated blood pressure, and has an affinity for the kidneys, adrenal glands, reproductive organs, hair (an extension of the nervous system), and heart. Although hibiscus is part of the marshmallow family, she has a little more fire and flavor than Althaea officinalis.
Lemon Peel We would be remiss to exclude a touch of citrus from our winter tea blend. When ingested, it offers clarity through detoxification and purification. While citrus is not often thought of as a holiday food, it is harvested during the winter and are bright symbols of resilience during the coldest months of the year. Ancient winter traditions include drying sliced citrus hung in the house like stained glass suns as a reminder that winter has an end and warmth is coming.
