Nettle (Urtica dioica) - Young Nettle leaves are some of the first to emerge each spring. They are a delight to the eye and the body coming from Winter's stillness. Nettles have long been eaten and used to invigorate the body and blood with a special focus on liver and lymphatic function.
Elder (Sambucus canadensis) - Elder flowers smell as delightful as a warm spring day. They are cooling and refreshing to the body, helping to move excess heat outward. Elder flowers support the sinus and respiratory tract of the body.
Goldenrod (Solidago spp.) - Goldenrod is a gorgeous late summer bloomer who is often blamed for autumn allergies, although this is most often not the case. The leaves and flowers are often prepared into tincture, tea, and oxymels to help support a healthy immune and inflammatory response. Goldenrod has a special affinity for the mucus membranes of the respiratory tract.
Turmeric (Curcuma longa) - Gorgeous, aromatic, pungent and beloved orange roots offer so much to the human body. Turmeric supports the liver and the detoxification processes of the body, which makes for a happier inflammatory response over all. These roots help to cool and clear excess heat in tissues and promote a healthy immune response.
Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis) - Bright yellow, bitter, and cooling roots have long been utilized to support the mucus membranes of the body, with a special affinity for the respiratory and digestive systems.
Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) - This ancient plant may have been around in its identical form during the age of the dinosaurs. Rich in minerals like silica, the young fronds of Horsetail help to support the tissues of the body for increased resiliency and strength. Horsetail also supports kidney function and elimination therein. A great tonic.
Black Pepper (Piper nigrum) - Likely the same spice in your kitchen pepper grinder, Black Pepper fruits are pungent, moving, and hot with an affinity for the respiratory system. Black Pepper supports a healthy inflammatory response in the body.
Suggested Use: Begin using a month prior to the season in which you are challenged.
