B. Tree Autumn CSA 2020
It is autumn equinox time again. Such a powerful time of year. The earth's light is completely in balance: equal day and equal night. Sometimes we have to work hard to find those signs of balance in the world, especially when it seems so out of balance in so many ways. I hope you can take time this week to find a moment of balance in your life.
For my herbal offerings this season, I've noticed that they've fallen mostly into two categories: immune support and heart/nervous system support. I guess that's what I've been needing! I hope they are helpful for you too.

I invite you to choose FIVE of the following options, and please note that the Elderberry Rosehip Syrup counts as TWO choices!
We will have two pick up locations again, at my garden in Green Hill and at my house in North Kingstown. Stay tuned for days and times :)

B. Courage Tea Blend
This could also be called "throat chakra tea" or "speak your truth." That's why I settled on courage, because it takes a lot to speak your truth and to be heard, to be vulnerable enough to put yourself out there and risk rejection, disagreement, or judgement. But if we don't take those risks, then we aren't living up to our fullest potential and bringing our full, miraculous self to all that we do. So this tea blend is to help open up our throats and lungs to prepare them for great things. It is a lemony ginger flavor with antiviral, throat and lung supportive herbs, great for sore throats, coughs, infections and speaking up.

B. Love Tea Blend
I think we could all use a little extra love right now, so here's a little steamy cup of love for you. This blend could also be called "Heart's Ease" because it is formulated to support the heart on all levels. These herbs help soothe emotional upset while nourishing a deep sense of self-love and compassion. Hawthorn also supports the physical heart by strengthening the muscles, blood vessels and valves of our organ of love. Damiana is said to be an aphrodesiac, which can promote the feeling of elated well-being that comes with falling in love. It is also a very soothing nervine, helping move through feelings of anxiety, overwhelm, panic, and stress.
Let's give ourselves big hugs and imagine sending them out into the world to all who need it.

Elderberry Rosehip Immune Boost Syrup
Fresh RI elderberries and beach rosehips, ginger, and cinnamon make this a delicious, smooth immune system super charger. Elderberries are one of the top most effective immune support herbs, used commonly in Europe as prevention and treatment of flu-like symptoms. My kids and I love plucking the little ripe berries off of their bright purple stems, leaving little purple "trees" behind, then boiling and mashing the berries to make syrup. And our dear, local beach roses are making those gorgeous, juicy fruits right now that are jam packed with vitamin C and other nutrients that help our bodies fight off infection. The extra spices make this syrup extra yummy while also adding warmth to our bodies as the chilly weather sets in.

Fire Cider
Another immune system support favorite, Fire Cider is a traditional recipe for warding off sickness, clearing out mucus, stimulating circulation, aiding digestion.....so much! It is a blend of pungent, spicy, anti-bacterial herbs and roots infused in apple cider vinegar. Put a splash in your water bottle, mix it in salad dressing, take a shot straight, mix with warm water and honey. It's the best thing when you feel a tickle in your throat or a sniffle in your nose: clears you right out!

Shine the Light tincture
The days are getting shorter, the sun is slipping lower in the sky and we begin to turn our attention to the autumn harvest and the changing season. And for some of us, we start making plans for how to survive and hopefully thrive in the cold, dark days of winter. So this blend is for anyone who wants to invite a little sunshine into their darker months. St John's Wort has been getting a lot of attention as an anti-depressant and the most magical thing about it, to me, is that it has all kinds of connections to the sun. It's leaves have tiny pin prick holes in them that literally "let the sunshine in." When you steep its golden yellow flowers in alcohol or oil, the liquid almost immediately begins to turn a deep, shining red color like the center of the sun. It is a powerful nervine, anti-spasmodic and anti-inflammatory, supporting the entire nervous system. It not only helps with serotonin uptake and lifting a dark mood, but also with nerve pain, arthritis and other inflammatory conditions. This blend is ready to bring you some sunshine.

Dream Deep Elixir
Back with popular support and lots of cheers, this blend is one of the most requested and best reviewed remedies that I make. It's made with gentle nervines that nourish a stressed body and mind, bringing a deep sense of inner calm and relaxed spirit. At the end of the day, sometimes we just need the space to take some deep breaths: let our body sit and our mind float on a cloud or on a gentle rocking ocean. And that's when we realize how tired we are or maybe that's when our inner voice can get through all the noise and give us its wisdom. However it happens for you, this blend will certainly lead you to deeper, easier sleep and often brings out memorable, more vivid dreams.

Tulsi Peace Blend
As many of you know, I love tusi (aka holy basil). It's an adapotogen, which means it helps the body adapt to stress and increases overall resiliance and balance. This seems especially important as we try to adapt to our rapidly changing world. I added all of my favorite nervines to this blend: the herbs that support our nervous systems and bring a sense of calm. This summer my regular, mainstream doctor actually recommended chamomile and lemon balm as ways to work through anxiety and said to add in an adapotogen if needed. So nice to get confirmation from an MD that I'm on the right path. So I hope this blend brings you the peace of mind that it's brought me.

Daily Immune Tonic
A CSA member asked me what she can take on a daily basis to support her immune system this autumn and winter. So I created this blend :) It has adapotgens and medicinal mushrooms to keep our bodies balanced, strong and resiliant. Reishi and cordyceps mushrooms are immunomodulating, meaning they strengthen and support our immune systems when taken over time. And reishi is specific for supporting those with weak lungs and frequent respiratory infections. Astragalus also strengthens the immune system when used consistently over time and Stephen Buhner recommends it's daily use to prevent Lyme disease and now also coronavirus. We are so blessed to have these supportive plant allies in our lives.

Echinacea Immune Support
Another very popular remedy in this CSA (and in this country) is echinacea. Echinacea stimulates the body to create more white blood cells to fight infection, so it's a powerful ally when you're coming down with something. In addition to the root, I also harvested some leaves and flowers when the plant was in full bloom, plus some seeds, making it a well-rounded whole plant extraction. I've added spilanthes for the first time this year because it turns out that it's also a powerful immunostimulant. It's great in situations with a high likelihood of getting sick, like during travel, stressful transitions, or close contact with sick family members. And to round it out, I've added the powerful antiviral, antibacterial superhero: garlic steeped in raw RI honey!
This blend is meant to take during or right at the onset of illness, not as a daily tonic.
