Vitamin C for You + Me

Vitamin C plays an important role in the health of our bodies and is an essential ingredient in our body’s ability to heal, promote normal tissue growth, and healthy cell development.  Having a regular and easily absorbable form of vitamin C in our diet is very important and since vitamin C can be easily destroyed through the cooking process, it is important to include raw fruits and vegetables in your diet.  One easy way to do this is to include a raw herbal and food powder into your routine, like our new ‘C’ Powder!

Winter Remedy Kits

As the year grows darker, it is especially important to nurture those inner fires of joy and gentleness.

Or were they fires of passion and desire?

Maybe they were dim lights for dozing…

Never fear what fire you have that might need stoking, for we’ve created our line of Winter Remedy Kits to meet all your darkening year needs.  Well, maybe not all of them – we’ll leave it to your parents to get you that pony you’ve always wanted.  So absent of a pony, we do have a special treat –  two of our Winter Remedy Kits feature our newest tea blend: Star of Yule!  Our Star of Yule blend was made to invoke the feelings of the winter with fresh notes of scent, freckled with warmth and starlight.

Star of Yule contains the following:

STAR ANISE Illicium verum: A great winter holiday remedy for all sorts of digestive complaints, including indigestion, belching, and gas.

CINNAMON Cinnamomum zeylanicum: Stimulates digestion, promotes circulation, warms the body and protects against colds and the ‘flu.

LICORICE Glycyrrhiza glabra: Delightful to the taste buds, Licorice is a wonderful rejuvenate herb.

ROSEMARY Rosmarinus officinalis: A nervous system toner, Rosemary is also warming and uplifting.  Promotes clear thinking (“Rosemary for rememberance!”) and protects against infection.

Herbs for the Road: Traveler Blend

It is always a holiday somewhere and so to say the holiday season is coming up is both a bit misleading and redundant.  We are terribly dedicated to leading no one astray – unless misdirection is part of the remedy.  A good remedy for when the wind fills your sails and you’re off on another adventure whether to a far off land filled with relatives or a forest full of gnomes, we’ve an herbal powder to help clear the way.  We like herbal powders for traveling because they don’t require a source of hot water to make tea, they are relatively compact, and are easy to take on the go!

Our Traveler Blend strengthens the body against fatigue, colds, and getting overwhelmed while also helping address common travel troubles of indigestion, insomnia, motion sickness, and allergies.  Clear roads and fair winds ahead!

CHAMOMILE Matricaria recutita: A classic herb for stomach upset, nausea, and indigestion, chamomile also supports a sense of peace and cheerfulness in the body through its nervine qualities.

LICORICE Glycyrrhiza glabra: For indigestion, inflammation, nausea, allergies, fatigue, fever, Licorice is also antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and an overall tonifying blend that supports the immune system.

CALENDULA Calendula officinalis: Antifungal, antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and immunostimulating, Calendula helps clear the body of infection and toxins.

REISHI Ganoderma lucidum: Antiviral and immunostimulating, Reishi is an herb of longevity and spiritual receptivity, calming spirit and mind. Great for treating insomnia, altitude sickness, and relieving fatigue.

ASTRAGALUS Astragalus membranaceus: An adaptogenic herb that is immunostimulating, Astragalus is also an adrenal tonic, antiviral, and helps the body resist invasive pathogens.

Available in convenient 1 ounce and 3 ounce sizes in our S H O P.

Come In and Sit a Spell: Witch’s Delight Tea Time

October has arrived carrying on her back a cloak of fallen leaves, steadying herself with the ever cooling dark of approaching winer.  To work in the tradition of Western Herbalism is to acknowledge the history of magic associated with our green friends and the bearers of their magical names and inclinations, Witches and their kin. Bringers of healing, gatherers of storms, and potion charmers, Witches, their ancient myths and modern manifestation, continue to walk the edges of society, trembling the web of change wherever they tread.

Though, really, I’m sure they’ve already taken to the sky.

More rainbows!

We’re happy to announce that we are now carrying Super!Rainbows!Love!Go! Powder Blend in a 3 ounce jar.   You can find it in our S H O P.  A 3 ounce portion of Super!Rainbows!Love!Go! Powder Blend is a 60 day supply of high fives.  Read more about herbal powders and why we like them here.

Let’s Talk About Rainbows

Teas are very important in the Worts & Cunning Apothecary household.  Our tea kettle is  an abundantly used tool in our home and tea pots and tea kettles are found on shelves about our kitchen.  And tables.  And the floor.  And in the hands of clever tea drinkers.  Yet, there is another concoction that plays as important role in the health and happiness of our household: the herbal powder.
