HERBS: Get On Your Own Team
A hand-harvested, organic herbal tea blend, in May 2020.
Chelsea Handler's book, Life Will Be the Death of Me, ends with the most brilliant sentiments.
"Your voice has meaning. Find something that you care about that has nothing to do with you and learn about it, pay attention when you're tired, take care of your self, read more, watch less TV, find new people to teach you their life lessons, be proactive, and know that you have something of value that is unlike what anyone else has. The world is only getting browner and gayer and if you don't hope on board you're going to miss the bus. Go after happiness like it is the only thing you can take with you when you die. Stand up for yourself. Treat yourself the way you treat the person you love most in the world. Get on your own team. Wake up, take a nap, laugh, cry, rinse, repeat."
So here we have it - my small version of getting on my own team. It starts with something warm, inclusive and healthy to sip on. A spot of sweetness that is good for your body. A treat that holds wellness at the core. A drink, a nourishment, a ritual.

Bring fresh, filtered water to a rolling boil and allow to cool for 1 minute prior to applying to herbs. Ideally, use a tea strainer for filtering herbs.
What To Expect
The taste and scent will be different with each herb, depending on how long they are steeped. If you steep the teas for longer time periods (3 minutes or more), they will be stronger in taste and scent.
Herbs are contained in a violet-glass apothecary jar.
1 Liter Apothecary jar contains 5 generous cups of tea, roughly 40 cups of brewed tea.
2 Liter Apothecary jar contains 10 generous cups of tea, roughly 80 cups of brewed tea.
How We Use It:
We steep our teas fresh daily, allowing them to be stored cool in the fridge in a glass container for up to three days. To make medicinal teas, simply add about 1 oz per liter of water and allow to steep for 24-48 hours, filter and sip. Be sure to work with a professional herbalist for more details on medicinal teas.

Apothecary Jar Info
Violetglass’ unique characteristics filter out the more damaging rays of the visible light spectrum, and allows portions of the UVA and infrared light waves in, keeping the products inside fresher for a longer period of time.
More specifically, Violetglass allows 25%-45% penetration of light in the range of 380-420 nanometers (violet and UVA-frequency), and about 60% penetration in the range of 730-1050 nanometers (Infrared frequency). These parts of the light spectrum seem to energize the organic molecules of the products stored within.
The small amount of visible violet light that is allowed in, gives the glass it’s beautiful dark violet color.
Biophotons are the light emitted by living tissue. 'Bio' in Greek means life and 'photon' means light. According to biophotonic research, measuring the biophotonic output of a food or supplement is a more accurate measurement of quality and life essence. Our bodies absorb photons from sunlight through the eyes, skin and also through sunlight enriched nutrition. As natural products absorb solar energy, the increased level of photons is a great indication of the products’ vitality and quality. Since many of today's products are processed, and often full of preservatives, they contain very little to no biophotons. These products do not contain energy levels beneficial to living cells. Violetglass also acts as a barrier, preventing the loss of biophotons from the product stored within, making preservatives less necessary. Violetglass is the only glass known which offers this important protection, assuring that smell, color, bioenergy and other properties remain preserved longer. Tests have shown that products stored in Violetglass keep their distinctive qualities for extended periods of time. The sooner a product is consumed all the better, as it will still have benefited from the energetic enhancing properties of the Violetglass.
