The hawthorn & wild rose within beautiful blend encourages us to open our hearts while teaching us to set Sacred & healthy boundaries. Hawthorn has a history of use as a tonic for the cardiovascular system. She has a calming effect on the nervous system and supports emotional heart-based pain such as grief & heartache.
Rosa Multiflora, or wild rose, leaves & flowers have contain anti-inflammatory, anti-spasmodic, cardiotonic & nervine properties. Like hawthorn, wild rose helps support the emotional heart in times of grief, trauma, anxiety and heartache.
Mullein connects our heart to the lungs, which is where the feeling of grief often resides, creating a bridge between them. Monarda helps connect body-spirit integration. Mullein is a wild and weedy plant ally with an affinity to the respiratory system, used in herbalism to help relax & soothe the lungs, alleviate dry cough and to assist in calming asthma. Verbascum's mild relaxant & demulcent properties help to soothe the lungs of inflammation and dryness which are often the causes of irritation for people with smoke exposure or other irritants. Mullein becomes enhanced with the properties of marshmallow root for bronchial support. Mullein leaf has also long been used as an expectorant to help clear respiratory congestion, as it promotes the ejection of mucus from the lungs.
Monarda, or Bee Balm/Wild Bergamot is noted for a very high thymol content. It is often used for cold/flu support, upper respiratory issues, digestive issues, nausea & fever reduction. Monarda contains anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory, antiviral & nervine properties. This herb helps lift us into higher frequencies.
Yarrow, the herb of the wounded warrior (or wounded healer) offers us deep levels protection and helps to gently guide us to the "underground" root systems of our issues. This herb contains antibacterial, antioxidant, antimicrobial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, decongestant & diaphoretic properties. Yarrow can be very helpful in times of cold/flu and fever.
Mountain Mint has cooling, diaphoretic properties that may be useful in times of fever or cold & flu.
