Winter can be hard on the body and the mind... American Ginseng is here to help. This root has the power to help stimulant you into a great mood and boot your energy.
It helps combat fatigue and fight depression due to it's ability to help relieve stresses on the body. It's known to herbalist as an adaption herb. Adaptions are herbs that take the body from a state of illness into a state of wellness. American Ginseng has antioxidants and anti-inflationary properties.
It was believed that Ginseng only grew in China and was in very high demand they would trade it for fine silks. A Canadian Jesuit priest discovered it growing in America in 1716 not know that the natives had already been using it. They used it for coughs, fevers, eye infections, headaches and for wounds.
The wild herb almost went extinct in American because it was so well loved. Farmers stepped in and started growing it commercially. Now it's still used for cold symptoms, but it is also used for diabetes, erectile dysfunction and memory function.
A little groggy from your hibernation sleep? Try a nice cup of American Ginseng, it will help give you the boost in your energy that you need to take on Spring.
Avoid taking American Ginseng if you are using blood thinners, pregnant or nursing, or have heart disease.
Labradorite is a great stone to help you start a new life, to begin with a new balance. Labradorite, pronounced la-bruh-daw-rait, is treasured for its remarkable play of color, known as labradorescence. The stone, usually gray-green, dark gray, black or grayish-white, is composed in aggregate layers that refract light as iridescent flashes of peacock blue, gold, pale green, or coppery red.
Labradorite was named after Labradore, Newfoundland, northeast Canada, where geologists first identified the gem in the 1770's. Legend has it that the Northern Lights were once stuck inside rocks on the Canadian coast until a brave warrior freed most of them by hitting the rocks with a spear. Another fun fact is that is also called falcon’s eye due to the iridescent flash.
This stone is a great companion through change, sharing its strength and perseverance. It helps balance and protect your aura, raise your consciousness and ground your spiritual energies.
Labradorite is considered a lucky stone taking on the energies of both the sun and the moon so you can charge them either way. You can also do a quick rinse in water, but it should not be left in a pool of water, that will cause it to deteriorate.
Here are a few areas that this stone can be helpful in: stress, anxiety, insomnia, balance anger, improve mental health, helpful to eyesight, arthritis/rheumatism, boost to physical energy also helpful in the digestive area. Labradorite is also sometimes called a Rainbow Moonstone.
You've all heard about 20 – 30 minutes of exercise is best for your physical health, but rarely do you hear about what how it can effect your mental health...
Let's start with what Endorphins are: they are a chemical that is produced by the body to relieve to the it from stress and pain. If you think about it the body wants you to exercise, it actually creates something in you to make your feel less pain and stress.
Sometimes we have the tenancy as humans to believe that we need to make ourselves hurt to make ourselves feel better. You don't have to push yourself to the edge to fill good. Find something active that you enjoy and do that for 20-30 minutes a day. Especially if you've been in a state of hibernation and hiding in a cave for the last year. You want to be gentle with yourself so that you'll continue to keep it up.
If you're in the middle of a creative block, whether that's working, painting or cooking. Staring at your projects yelling THINK, THINK, THINK isn't going to help remove the block. By taking 20-30 minutes to go on physical activity, you'll be focused on your activity. This will give your brain the relaxation time it needs so that you'll be able to come back refreshed and open.
In the middle of a pity party? Ever thought about physically doing something non harmful to get your pity out? This is a powerful tool in your belt. Whatever your physical activity is you can pump all your rage and pity into that activity. Then, those handy little endorphins will come do to help relief your stress and pain.
When you start exercising regularly you start seeing little changes to our bodies that no one else sees. Who cares if they don't... you will see and feel them. It makes you feel more confident, powerful and proud of yourself for taking care of yourself. That confidence and pride helps lifts and powers you through your day so you can take on the world.
