Want to know more about the ingredients? Here’s how some of them are traditionally used around the world:

 

Our trusty ginger is in the mix, and is used for rejuvenation, pain and inflammation alleviation, as well as a cramping aid according to The California College of Ayurveda.  A really beautiful bush - cramp bark grows in Oregon and as Medical Herbalist Richard Whelan writes, (and the name implies) it has a muscle-relaxing effect on the body. Whelan also shares about the uses of our local Oregon nettle in avoiding anemia, cleansing the body, and in treating rheumatism. Another fabulous local plant is lemon balm. Smell it on the edge of local creeks with a grateful inhale. Herbalist Jon Keyes tells us more about lemon balm - it being one of the best gentle herbs for bringing calm and relaxation to someone who is overheated, irritable, hypertensive, anxious and stressed out. Keys explains that one of the best immune enhancing elixirs one can concoct is elderberry, but that is also has a nice gentle relaxing quality that is helpful for someone who is anxious  Another common name in immune strengthening is echinacea which The Naturopathic Herbalist, Dr. Marisa Marciano writes: stimulates the immune system and improves resistance to infections. Dr Marciano also shares that Valerian is one of the most relaxing nervines available to herbal medicine, being safely used to reduce tension, anxiety, and overexcitable states. It is an effective aid in insomnia, producing a natural healing sleep. As an antispasmodic it has a muscle relaxing effect on smooth and skeletal muscles, and will aid in the relief of cramping, neuralgias and intestinal colic. As a pain reliever it is most indicated where that pain is associated with tension, such as in migraines. It carries no risk of dependency and does not effect mental concentration. Finally, another familiar name might be: red clover. Dr. Marciano notes that red clover is useful for being phytoestrogenic and for its mineral constituents.
