Our Seasonal Box Series is an ode to mother earth and the changing seasons.
PLEASE NOTE: PRODUCTS CHANGE ACCORDING TO AVAILABILITY SO PICTURES MAY NOT MATCH WHAT IS IN THE BOX!
As the days get longer in the north hemisphere, we collectively shift our attention away from the hibernation and coziness of winter as life wakes up all around us. With that, we are setting our intention to grow our garden, nourish ourselves with spring herbs and tonics, and revel in the bliss that is spring.
The Spring Wellness Box includes:
Healing Herbs Seeds from Seattle Seed Co.: This healing herb packet comes with some of our favorite herbs. These include echinacea, calendula, lemon balm and chamomile and can either be admired for their beauty, harvested to make tea or even dried to make your own tinctures and salves.
Why we love it: One of the best ways to honor the shift in seasons into spring is to plant some seeds in your garden or even in containers that can sit on your window sill and to watch them grow. There is nothing more empowering than growing your own medicine to use in teas or even for tinctures and salves. Seattle Seed Company buys their seeds from certified organic farms and cooperatives who want to help preserve the integrity of the food supply. They carefully select their seed varieties to ensure they are of the highest quality and value and they give back to their community, which we absolutely love!

Why we love it: This tea blend is loved by absolutely everyone who tries it. The licorice gives it a hint of sweetness, the rose gives it the floral notes and the lemon verbena the kick of citrus. We love it because it is an energetically balanced blend, is calming and nourishing but also uplifting. It can be enjoyed at all hours of the day and makes us feel special when we drink it.

Stinging Nettle-My Herbal Box- Apothecary Jar
Stinging nettle has been used for hundreds of years to treat painful muscles and joints, eczema, arthritis, gout, and anemia. Today, many people use it to treat urinary problems during the early stages of an enlarged prostate (called benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH). It is also used for urinary tract infections, hay fever (allergic rhinitis), or in compresses or creams for treating joint pain, sprains and strains, tendonitis, and insect bites.
