Just like that, the temperatures drop & it is sweater weather. I, for one, am excited about the change in the season. With this change, we are starting (or should be) to prepare our bodies & immune systems for the colder, winter months ahead. Now, more than ever people are looking at ways to help themselves stay healthy, and doing so in a more natural way.
What is more, I am closing in on the end of my Vitalist Herbalist program and currently working on perfecting services that take an even more tailored approach for you. Utilizing specifically blended herbal oils, I will be able to tailor Ayurvedic and Aromatherapy Massages based on the overall natural state of your body and help bring it back to balance. If you are looking for something more in-depth and want to get to the "root of the problem" or just maintain your body's level of happiness, Herbalism Consultations & Custom Tea Consultations will be recommended to you. I have been diligently working to understand how we can use the natural world and herbal remedies used for thousands of years to help facilitate us all becoming the best versions of ourselves.
New & Exciting Herbal Remedy Treatments
(available after September 22, 2020)
Mellow Mindtrip Tea Session
This herbal tea blend was adapted by Jennifer to accommodate not only the changing of the seasons and to help boost immune systems but to be deeply relaxing and nourishing. The showcase herbs in this blend promote a mildly euphoric state as they work on calming down your nerves. Perfect right before a spa treatment or at home as you wind down for the evening.
Your session is approximately 10 to 15 minutes in length and is complete with an Herbal Foot Bath.
Add a serving of CBD/CBG to your tea for even more anti-inflammatory benefits. (additional $5)
Decongestant Herbal Steam Treatment
A perfect compliment to any of our massage & bodywork services, Jennifer has developed a custom herbal steam blend that aids in loosening up those pesky sinuses.
Elderberry Immunity Elixir
A powerhouse for our immune systems and native to Kansas, Elderberries pack a punch when it comes to fighting off colds, hayfever, coughs, and the list goes on. This Elixir is easy to make at home and needs 8 weeks to marinate in your home away from light.
What you need:
Elderberries, dried and whole (P.S. we have some!)
Raw Honey (local is always better, local bees pollinate with the local flowers, etc. that contribute to your allergies.)
Apple Cider Vinegar
First, mix your Raw Honey and Apple Cider Vinegar menstruum (solvent). Give it a good stir.
In your mason jar, fill it half full with your Elderberries.
Pour your menstruum (step one) over your Elderberries and fill almost to the top of the jar.
Place a piece of wax paper or plastic wrap over the opening so the metal of the lid does not come into contact with the vinegar. Seal the jar.
Keep away from the light for 8 weeks, shaking often.
Take 1 to 2 tablespoons at the first sign of a cold. For me, I prefer preventative instead of reactionary. I plan, along with all my other lovely plant remedies, to be taking this throughout the season. Then, I will bump up the amount I take if I happen to fall victim to a pesky cold.
