I created this blend to be the perfect ally for summer! During summer, we are exposed to extensive amounts of heat, which can of course overheat us, but can also eventually dry us out! The combination of these two things can bring on a wide range of imbalances... From irritation to inflammation and then eventually to dryness-related conditions like anxiety, dry eyes and throat, depletion. Think of what happens to your grass in the summer when it doesn't get watered! My intention with this blend was to create something that could be taken throughout summer to reduce excessive heat, moisturize, strengthen, and prevent imbalanced from occurring. It's like the equivalent of having a great sprinkler system in the hot summer!
I tried to approach these issues from every angle. The base of this blend consists of adaptogenic herbs that are cooling and nourishing. We also include herbs that are hydrating, herbs that remove excessive heat from the head, skin, and body as a whole. We also include herbs that are soothing, relaxing... and then some that are abundant in minerals. The overall energies of this blend are cooling, hydrating, soothing, calming, and nourishing. This blend is designed to prevent heat-related imbalances from manifesting and also to help the body heal heat-related imbalances that are already present.
I recommend drinking this blend once it's cool! You can pour some boiling water over it, give it a stir, and let it sit. There is no need to drink the powder that settles at the bottom, although you can make another cup of tea if you'd like. You can absolutely make a big pitcher (think ice tea) and keep it in the fridge and it is fine to sweeten if you like. (Maple syrup and sugar are cooling- honey is heating).
