For me creating this creams is a Sacred offering. From collecting medicinal plants and selecting the best natural and organic ingredients, to carefully preparing them. I hope that you will use then with the intention of taking time each day to truly nurture yourself.
One of my most favorite things to do when creating a tea blend, is to simply enjoy the process. To not get caught into what it should looks like, or if I am adding to much, or to little of something. Its about being present with whats calling at the moment. Its important for me to connect with the plant before picking it. I believe is essential to treat with honor, and respect THAT which give us their life, so we can heal our bodies, mind and soul. You see, is not that complicated. Treat others as you want others to treat you :-) Basic rules of healthy living :-) And that is crucial with Everything, and Anything you are planning to put in your body. I actually believe thats where ALL begins.
So for all of you Tea lovers, Here is a Simple, but Powerful tea recipe I created, and call it,
1 part dandelion leaf -A great tonic herbs of all times. High in vitamins and minerals including calcium, magnesium, iron and vitamins A and C.
1/4 Chinese Star Anise - A carminative, stimulant, analgesic, and energy regulator.
1/4 Fresh Mint - Good for colds, flu, fever, gas and mind digestive disorders.
Jiaogula leaf (optional) Also call as "the Herb of Immortality"
A pinch of rose petals - It dries cold, clear mucous discharges, relieves constrictives feelings of chest and abdomen, treats poor appetite, harmonize blood, and much more.
I suggest not adding to much flowers on your tea, since it can overpower on the taste.
Boil a cup water. After is boil, let it cool down for few seconds. Mix 1 teaspoon of your tea blend with one cup of hot water. Then Relax and Enjoy your tea!
Remember to breathe the steam that comes from that cup. It's very healing for our bodies. And also remember to be grateful for all the nurturing that its happening as you sip your Prefect Tea!

Happy Monday to you all!
Today is day 19 out of 21 days of positive affirmation. I am choosing this beautiful picture of our family trip to Idaho because it speaks to me. The powerful affirmation is from a great teacher, Ernest Holmes. I feel inspired by his reflections, and connected to his words.They speak to my heart. Hope this affirmations brings to you the clarity you need to continue walking in this Earth in the most a gentle, beautiful way.
Today I am wearing my Super Hero Suit! And I am LOVING IT!
It has been two long days of my husband, and son Aidan being sick with some crazy stomach stuff. They are now feeling much better after spending the day in bed resting, hydrating with homemade ginger ale, and tea, few drops of herbal tinctures secretly add (for my son), a good dose of Mango/Orange popsicle, some soda crackers, and lots of love. Just writing this I am feeling already tired.
After two days, and night of none stop taking care of my very ill loved ones, I am ready to start taking care of myself. Why? Look at the picture above. I am about to pass out. Well, not really, but REALLY. I can already feel my energy feeling low and requiring some immediate attention in order for me to continue helping others. This sounds familiar to you?
So today as I put my army, nothing can get through, warrior, armor suit, I am going to start adding more herbal tinctures into my every day life, and the lives of my loved ones. And yes, I use myself, and my family to practice everything I have learn through out the years about medicinal plants, and their healing properties. This is where I get my hands on, feedback, results, and homework done. Through my friends and family I get to witness how their bodies heal in a gentle way. Using herbs from my garden, or from local resources to assist on what its need it at the moment. Plants like Yarrow to lower the fever, or chamomile to help with abdominal discomfort, adding Echinacea, and Goldenseal tincture to boost the Immune System. This are just few herbs you can use. I like to use tinctures since they provide a liquid form of herbal supplement to those who have difficulty swallowing capsules. They also are more readily absorbed than encapsulated herbs, so are faster acting. They are perfect to add on soups, juices, water, tea, or simply take few drops strait under your tongue.
So I hope my story of today bring some useful knowledge to you!
