Supplement of the Month
This month we are featuring our Melancholy Tincture
This potent tincture is a highly sophisticated blend of herbs chosen specifically for their effectiveness and their synergistic actions. Dr. Peter Borten has spent over a decade treating patients with mood disorders and researching the most useful plants to treat them. A few of the powerful herbs in this 16 herb tincture are:
- Albizzia flower– this flower comes from a tree known as “collective happiness tree.” It soothes and lifts the mind.
- Lily bulb– this nourishing herb is used to treat melancholy, especially when there is also some agitation and/or disturbed sleep.
- Magnolia bark– used to move “stuck energy” especially when there is tightness in the chest, an uneasy feeling, or poor appetite. Recent studies have shown that magnolia bark reduces anxiety and improves sleep.
- These herbs, among others, address the underlying mechanisms of melancholic mood.
Product of the Month
This month we are featuring our Balance Shower Gel
Your shower routine can be a transcendent experience with our body gel infused with essential oils to uplift your spirits and relax your mind. It provides a rich lather, while being natural and gentle to the skin.
- Gotu Kola – This Indian herb has had a prominent role in Ayurvedic medicine for hundreds of years. Although it is perhaps best known for its benefits on mental clarity, we include it in our shower gel for its many benefits to skin and blood vessels. It promotes soft skin, enhances blood flow, and encourages healing of various skin disorders.
- Geranium – This is a valuable herb for skin care due to its astringent properties, which help it tighten and restore good tone to the skin. It’s also a safe and natural antimicrobial agent, making it useful promoting healing of minor wounds and scrapes. Herbalists consider geranium to be a cicatrisant, meaning that it promotes wound healing and helps to break down old scars.
- Horsetail – This mineral rich herb has a long history of use for the promotion of skin, hair, and nail health. Herbalists use it to heal wounds, rashes, burns, skin lesions and acne. In addition, largely to do its high content of silica, which is an important constituent of connective tissue, it is one of the most useful and common herbs in cosmetic products for the prevention and repair of wrinkles and other expressions of aging skin.
