If there was ever a time when a cup of medicinal tea, and a deep breath is needed, this is it.  During these times when we need to be doing radical self-care, so we can serve those in need, and be there to support those closest to us, a deep breath, a cup of tea, and the aromatherapy (of a garden, an essential oil etc.) are desperately needed. In my home apothecary, I have over 100 dried bulk herbs and powders.Each of our high quality, Passionflower custom herbal tea blends, can be prepared iced as well. And, I can deliver orders to your door on Sunday afternoons!

Here are some of my favorites right now: 

Organic Nettles Leaf/Tulsi (Holy Basil)/Lemon Balm: I make this tea each day for my family. Nettles has been shown to immunomodulate and decrease some of those inflammatory immune factors (IL-1Beta, IL-6) associated with the “cytokine” storm. Tulsi or Holy Basil supports healthy cortisol levels, and Lemon Balm gladdens, and is anti-viral. A lemon balm plant in your garden is instant Horticulture Therapy, as your inhale its healing powers. 

Hibiscus/Hawthorne/Linden/Olive Leaf/- My favorite tea for moderating blood pressure in these stressful times. Combine this tea with your afternoon meditation. 

Passiflora “Fight Those Germs”: Astragalus, Hibiscus, Elderberry, Elderflower, Echinacea, Tulsi- Holy Basil, Licorice Root, and Currants for flavor. This blend contains some powerhouses in immune boosting, such as Elderflower and Astragalus, that have been used by Traditional Cultures for hundreds and hundreds of years. 

And, there are many more. Just check out our list of custom tea blends and bulk herbs.

If you would like me to deliver any of these teas to your door-step ($12 for 2 ounces of custom tea blends), or any of our other Passiflora blends, please contact me via e-mail at Be Well, my friends.
