In my laboratory I create tonics, teas, and tantalizing dishes. Please understand it’s not just about the ingredients used, but the heart, soul and intention brought into the kitchen space. If the intention is alleviating aches and pains and bringing comfort to someone you love, that is what will be created. If the intention is to alleviate stress, that is what will be created.
All parts of the dandelion can be used including the flower, stems, leaves, and root. That has medicinal benefits. You can cook the leaves up like you would collard greens. I was told stories that my Paw Paw used to make dandelion wine. The root can be used as well in teas and tonics like in Release Rise & Shine Tea.
I often feel anxious about what is going to happen next and sometimes miss the NOW! Is there something you have fear and anxiety about that is holding you back or delaying your next? Are you ready to let it go and heal?
The color green makes me think of spring and all of the wonderful possibilities and opportunities awaiting me. Ever noticed if you bring a small live plant into your office cubicle how it lifts the space? That same energy and intention can happen with us using green tea. Green tea has so many benefits to include improving your mood, memory, focus, and fat burning. Consume green food, green tea, surround yourself with green colors, plants, nature, jewelry like jade, a green agate, or emrald and fill your thoughts with love for yourself and others.
