Everyday Nutrients for Whole Body Health
The Earth has been helping the continuation of creation long before humans came to be. Plants hold wisdom that is far more ancient than the bodies we inhabit, and with the help of plants we are able to maintain the ecology and community of being one with the Earth. It takes courage in our American society to commit to our connection and union with the Earth and all it’s inhabitants. Most of the motivators for success and progression in our western culture lean away from an eco-centric mindset and lean closer to an ego-centric one. This means that to feel connection to something bigger than yourself and to feel the wisdom of the earth’s ecosystem is curiously quite radical. It is a grievous idea that to be radical means to be connected to the Earth. Our innate tendencies towards being the natural world as opposed to going in to the natural world are no longer regarded and celebrated as obvious. Instead, it can seem that we have separated the human-made world away from the natural world. Herbalism is a radical announcement that we are the natural world not sovereign over it. Herbalism is a medicine system for all peoples and all bodies. With herbalism we are entering into an ongoing creative movement towards individual, communal, and global health.
Health begins at an individual body level. In order to function, create, and move about in this world we must first support full body health so that all systems are go. For March’s Tea Blend we have put together a combination of nourishing and nutrient packed herbs that are good year round to supplement your body with a base of daily needed vitamins and minerals.
