Welcome to my Herbal Shop – I’m excited to be able to start sharing some of my herbal creations. These are products I use in my house regularly.
Salves are a wonderful addition to any first aid kit or natural medicine cabinet. They are easy to use as well as take with you. Having young kids, they are a must have and my family plays a big role in all I create.
Herbal teas are packed full of easy to absorb nutrients and can offer some moments of peace and calmness in today’s busy world. All of my teas are naturally caffeine free and can be enjoyed by kids and adults. Many of my teas can be enjoyed cold as well as hot so they can be equally enjoyed through the cooler months. Tea makes a great substitute for juice and other high sugar (or sugar substitute) drinks.

A blend of powdered herbs to help the body adapt to stress (including emotional, physical and environmental) as well provide nourishment. This blend is a combination of Ashwagandha, Astragalus, Eleuthero, Ginger and Cinnamon.
Ashwagandha is an iron rich, calming adaptogenic herb that enhances endocrine function by helping to regulate the thyroid, testes and adrenal glands. It is effective for anxiety, fatigue, brain fog and stress induced insomnia. Studies are showing that Ashwagandha has some anti-aging effects.
Astragalus is an adaptogenic herb that enhances immune function and may help prevent colds, influenza, bronchitis, pneumonia, etc. Astragalus also strengthens the lungs and can help support the immune system after a bout with illness or surgery.
Eleuthero is an adaptogenic herb known for improving alertness and cognitive function when under severe stress or working long hours as well as increasing energy and reducing fatigue. It can increase stamina, endurance, enhance mitochondrial activity and speed up recovery as well as prevent immune depletion from excess training.
Ginger and Cinnamon are added for their circulatory benefits to enhance the other herbs as well as their sugar stabilizing benefits. Plus they provide a delicious taste to this blend!
How to use: add to smoothies, oatmeal, yogurt, energy balls, mix into 1/2 teaspoon of honey and eat right off the spoon! This blend can also be enjoyed as a hot drink – add to hot water or warmed milk and stir right in, steep just as you would with tea (I like to do a minimum of 10 minutes) – you can also mix it with honey and pour hot water or milk on top to dissolve. Another option is a decoction: add water and blend to a small saucepan, bring to a simmer and allow it to simmer for at least 20 minutes. Since the herbs used are roots (and cinnamon is a bark) they are very hardy and make a strong and potent decoction.
Amount of blend taken varies from person to person – start with 1/2 tsp and work up to 1 tablespoon or more for desired taste and effect. Can be taken daily or as needed. My daily intake is 1/2 teaspoon – more isn’t always better, just find the right balance for you!
Glass Jar (50g) $7.00, Resealable Bag (70g) $8.00, Large Resealable Bag (140g) $15.00, Sample Size (10g) $2.00 (or 3/$5 – can be mixed and matched with herbal tea).

Herbal Loose Tea
Immune Spice Loose Tea – a blend of Holy Basil (Tulsi), Orange Peel and Chaga mushrooms. This tea has a nice warm spicy flavour from the holy basil with a hint of orange. Holy Basil is an adaptogenic herb that helps the body adapt to stress and supports mental well being. Stress is by the far the biggest reason our immune systems become weak and overworked. Holy Basil provides nutrients such as vitamin A and C, zinc, calcium, iron and chlorophyll. Orange peel is a source of fibre to help support regular bowel movements, stabilizes blood sugar and is supportive to respiratory health. Oranges in my blend are dried in my home at low heat to retain maximum nutrients. Chaga is known as the King of medicinal mushrooms. It is one of the most potent sources of antioxidants known and is especially a great source of SOD (superoxide dimutase) which is one of our most important antioxidants. SOD is quickly depleted by EMF expose such as electronics (cell phones, TV’s, computers, iPads, wifi, etc.) and indoor light – which is all increased during the colder seasons!
Holiday Warmth Herbal Tea – a blend of dried Apple, Cinnamon, Red Rooibos, Elderberries and Ginger. Apples are a superfood that supports healthy digestion and stabilized blood sugar. It is also a source of quercetin. Quercetin is an antioxidant that supports immune function, improves inflammatory and histamine response. Cinnamon – known for stabilizing blood sugar and a potent antioxidant. Along with ginger, these herbs give this tea its “warmth” as both herbs are known to be warming. Ginger – warmth in a glass that can improve blood circulation, support immune health – especially respiratory and support digestive health. Red Rooibos – supports immune health and has 50% more antioxidants than green tea. Nourishes digestive health, immune support, hair, skin and bones thanks to the many minerals such as calcium, manganese, iron, zinc, copper and more. Elderberries – popular for its high vitamin C content and immune support. These berries taste delicious in tea, are cooling so they add balance to the warming herbs.
A Taste of Sunshine Herbal Tea – a blend of Lemon Balm, Red Raspberry Leaf, Strawberries and Hibiscus Flowers. This tea was created to bring a taste of sunshine during the colder months but can also be enjoyed as a cold and refreshing drink in the warmer months. This tea tastes sweet and has a nice pink colour. Lemon balm is a nervine that soothes the nervous system and can help relieve stress, anxiety and seasonal affective disorder (SAD). Red raspberry leaf is full of nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, vitamin C, B vitamins, antioxidants and more. Strawberries provide lots of nutrients to support immune function and offer a nice touch of sweetness to this tea. Hibiscus flowers are full of nutrients but is also considered a digestive tonic – it helps the body to absorb nutrients so it helps us to get the most out of this blend. It also is responsible for this blend’s lovely shade of pink.
Super Nettle-Mint Herbal Tea – a blend of Nettle, Peppermint and Chaga Mushroom. Nettle is a nutrient rich herb that is commonly used to help support the body during seasonal changes as well as a diuretic that supports flushing the body of toxins. Peppermint supports digestive health as well as offers a nice sweet flavour to this tea that makes it a nice “after dinner” tea or afternoon tea to help curb sugar cravings. Chaga is known as the King of medicinal mushrooms. It is one of the most potent sources of antioxidants known and is especially a great source of SOD (superoxide dimutase) which is one of our most important antioxidants. SOD is quickly depleted by EMF expose such as electronics (cell phones, TV’s, computers, iPads, wifi, etc.) and indoor light – which is all increased during the colder seasons!
Evening Calm Herbal Tea – a blend of Passionflower, Lemon Balm, Chamomile, Skullcap, Catnip and Spearmint. This tea was created to promote relaxation and replenish your nervous system. Both Passionflower and Skullcap have mild sedative properties so this tea can be enjoyed in the evening as part of your bedtime ritual or to unwind after a busy/stressful day.
Day Calm Herbal Tea – A blend of Oatstraw, Red Raspberry Leaf, Nettle, Chamomile and Cinnamon. This tea is a super nutritive to the nervous system that will provide calmness that is suitable for the daytime. This tea can be enjoyed by children to adult, as well as during pregnancy (2nd trimester and on) and for new mom’s to help nourish the body and support milk production.* This tea can help support feelings of being burned out, disconnected or out of sorts – no matter how much rest you are getting.
Tummy Calm-Mint – a blend of Chamomile, Fennel Seed, Calendula, Catnip and Peppermint. This tea is filled with herbs to promote relaxation and calmness to your digestive system. This can be from overeating, upset stomach, nervousness that affects the stomach, etc. This tea is nice to sip after meals and can be enjoyed by children and adults.
Chai-Inspired Herbal Tea – a blend of Holy Basil (Tulsi), Red Rooibis, Ginger, Cinnamon, Fennel Seed, Clove and Star Anise. This tea is inspired by traditional chai but contains no caffeine. This tea is packed with antioxidants and warming herbs that can help support circulation. Both cinnamon and ginger are herbs that can help stabilize blood sugar. This tea can be enjoyed steeped in hot water, warm milk or a combination of both.
Happy Heart Herbal Tea – a blend of Holy Basil (Tulsi), Linden Flower, Rose and Calendula. This tea works on an energetic level to promote feelings of joy in the heart but also offers many nutritional benefits to support the physical body. The adaptogenic properties of holy basil can help to reduce feelings of anger and reduce anxiety and stress. Linden flower’s nervine qualities can help “take the edge off” and reduce stress and tension. Calendula is a flower that looks like little suns and energetically can help bring the sunshine in! Calendula is very well known as a natural and powerful skincare ingredient because of it’s ability to regenerate the skin (thanks to its high amounts of iodine, manganese and beta carotene) and provides the same nourishment inside the body as it does outside. Energetically Rose is known for bringing joy to our hearts and physically supports the circulatory system.
Lymph Mover Herbal Tea – a blend of Red Clover, Calendula, Nettle and Ginger. This tea supports movement of the lymphatic system as well as general stagnation in our lives on an emotional level. Our lymphatic system plays an important role to our immune health and our body’s detoxification process by transporting lymph – a colourless fluid containing white blood cells that help rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted material. Our lymphatic system can easily become over burdened and may show symptoms such as fatigue, cold hands and feet, stiff upon waking, bloating, excess weight, food sensitivities, brain fog, etc. On an emotional/spiritual level this blend can help with feelings of stagnation or being stuck, trying to break away from old thought patterns/beliefs or in need of fresh ideas and direction.
Seasonal Support Herbal Tea – a blend of Elderflower, Yarrow, Nettle, Peppermint and Chaga. This blend helps support your body during the seasonal changes that leaves us feeling tired, congested, coughing, runny noses and sinus congestion. This tea can be supportive during colds and flu, helping to relieve upper congestion and support the body during a fever, encouraging sweating to help the body cool down. This blend helps to nurture the immune system and tastes delicious – it can be enjoyed anytime!
A Breath of Fresh Air Herbal Tea – a blend of Eastern White Pine Needles, White Spruce tips, Elderberries and Cinnamon. This is a major immune system boosting blend, the locally foraged Pine Needles and Spruce Tips are an abundant source of vitamin C, Elderberries provide an abundance of antioxidants to keep cells healthy (which makes it more difficult for viruses to enter) and Cinnamon to add warmth and flavour. These are all hardy plants that help support those winter ailments (coughs and colds). Energetically this tea reminds me of our connection with breath exchange between the trees and clears out what we don’t need and fills that space with a new clear outlook.
Lemon Cat-Mint – a blend of Lemon Balm, Catnip and Peppermint. This blend is helpful for anxiety that manifests in the stomach, over excitement, and can be supportive to the body during illness that includes nausea. This blend is nice for all ages but is really great for children. Children often complain of stomach aches because it is often where stress manifests for them. Many people think of Catnip for cats but it is my favourite herb for children and overall stomach complaints from anxiety/worry for all ages, it is calming and helps with that “butterflies in the tummy” feeling. Peppermint supports digestion and can be helpful when there’s any nausea present. Lemon Balm is like a blast of sunshine and supports feelings or worry and sadness. It also gently calms when you are feeling overexcited or hyper. It should come as no surprise that this blend was created and named by my 8 year old son – he feels this is a needed blend to help people. It is also delicious!
Clari-Tea – a blend of Gotu Kola, Peppermint, Sage and Chaga Mushroom. This blend is helpful for mental fatigue, fogginess and uplifting the mood. Gotu Kola has noortropic properties that can help support brain function, supporting circulation, memory and cognition. Sage has been shown to elevate mood, increase alertness, calmness and brain function. Peppermint stimulates the mind and can help support memory, focus and concentration. Chaga has been shown to be protective against neurodegeneration due to it’s powerful antioxidant properties. This is a great combination to help with physical and emotional clarity. Emotionally Gotu Kola helps push trapped thoughts through (that feeling your brain is full of thoughts and can feel overwhelming), Sage brings wisdom and uplifting thoughts, Peppermint is a great herb for digestion and can help with the digestion of thoughts and feelings, and Chaga is a powerhouse antioxidant helping to support these processes.
Replenishing Roots – a blend of Burdock Root, Dandelion Root and Ginger Root. This blend is intended to be used as a decoction (warmed on the stove or the crockpot) and enjoyed over 5-7 days. The deep nourishment from this blend will help to replenish the body when recovering from illness (you know when the symptoms are gone but you still feel wiped out), after surgery, after taking antibiotics, after a stressful event, used in place of a detox or for just a general tune-up. This blend will help nourish the blood and liver, is a great source of inulin – a prebiotic that will help support the bacteria in your digestive tract and can be enjoyed throughout the day without making any other changes (no unhealthy detox rules). This can be prepared and heated throughout the week, replenishing water as needed. Emotionally/spiritually, the deep roots of Burdock (that provides nutrients that many other plants can’t access) and wild roots of Dandelion can provide deep grounding and connection to the Earth. I love using this blend between Spring/Summer and again between Summer/Fall to help keep my body in balance with nature during those big seasonal changes.

Sage Bath Bags – a 3 x2 inch bath bag filled with dried Sage (Salvia Officinalis), Epsom salts, Dead Sea salt and Coconut oil.Sage brings clarity and feelings of peacefulness but also enhances immunity and helps support the body when coughs, colds or fevers may be present.

The addition of Epsom and sea salts helps to relieve stress, soothe sore muscles and leave the skin feeling soft and nourished. This combination together is wonderfully grounding and helps connect us to that feeling of walking barefoot. While you can add a few drops of your favourite essential oil to the bag, I love using plants as they are and find them to be more balancing and effective overall.
