First of all, I just want to express my gratitude to the Grange for letting us use the kitchen to continue to support the community with medicinal herbal teas in the aftermath of the firestorms.
This tea is formulated to support the lungs and throat after being exposed to smoke and particulates, as well as liver and immune function to help our bodies process exposure to these particulates. It also contains herbs known as adaptogens, to help the body process the stress hormones produced in a state of crisis. Some of the herbs in this formula are categorized in more than one of these areas.
Here are the ingredients in this tea blend:
Wild cherry bark
And (sometimes) Osha
I look forward to going more in depth on Tuesday! I will be extending an invitation to some other people who have been key players in this project.
It has been an honor to be a part of the coming together of such an amazing and resilient community, particularly the bodyworkers, naturopaths, acupuncturists, herbalists, and wildcrafters, and of course, the farmers!
