♡ - Shaped Tea

14.00

♡ - Shaped is an herbal tea for the physical and emotional heart. Here we've combined herbs that support and strengthen the physical heart, improve overall circulation, move blood, and balance blood pressure. The emotional heart is tended to as well - holding onto grief of the heart can physically and negatively affect both the heart and respiratory system and so herbs are included to support the lungs and and uplift the emotions. 

Overall energetics/actions: relaxing (muscles), stimulating (blood/circulation), uplifting 

Parts of the Whole:

Crataegus spp. (wildcrafted hawthorn berry, flower, leaf + stem)
Ocimum tenuiflorum (organic holy basil rama + krishna)
Rosmarinus officinalis (organic rosemary)
Sambuca nigra (wildcrafted elderberry)
Leonurus cardiaca (organic motherwort)
Rosa spp. (wildcrafted rosehips)
Cinnamomum verum (organic cinnamon)

⊙ The Sun symbol is imbued on our Winter Sun tea - per medical astrology, the sun is connected to the body through the heart. The Sun gives light to support life on Earth, just as the heart gives life to the body. 

"The Vital spirit hath its residence in the heart, and is dispersed from it by the Arteries; and is governed by the influence of the Sun. And it is to the body, as the Sun is to the Creation: as the heart is in the Microcosm, so is the Sun in the Megacosm: for as the Sun gives life, light, and motion to the Creation, so doth did heart to the body; therefore it is called Sol Corporis, as the Sun is called Cor Coeli, because their operations are similar. Inimical and destructive to this virtue, are Saturn and Mars. The Herbs and Plants of Sol, wonderfully fortify it." ~Culpeper's Complete Herbal, 1643, p.300

☆ Many of the herbs and formulations that we use may not be suitable for pregnant or nursing individuals. If you are nursing, pregnant, or considering pregnancy, please consult your Health Care Practitioner before using any Wolves & Sage products.

Hawthorn berry, leaf & flower: has an affinity for the physical and emotional heart, increases blood flow to the heart muscles restoring normal heart beat, is an excellent tonic, and is literally food for the heart and soul. Studies have shown hawthorn to be effective at treating people with chest pain/angina from low blood flow to the heart, as well as heart failure where the heart was unable to pump blood to other organs. These are serious heart conditions and we do not suggest using hawthorn to treat such serious health issues, but we share this with you to not that hawthorn is well studied. We know that it is fantastic at protecting against heart disease, controlling blood pressure and cholesterol levels, increasing coronary blood flow and greatly improves overall circulation. Additionally, hawthorn is supportive of the lungs and respiratory system, especially in cases of asthma or grief. 

Motherwort: is both an herb to settle frazzled nerves and an herb to settle a frazzled heart. Studies have shown this herb to slow rapid heartbeat and/or palpitations, to lower the level of fat in the blood, and to temporarily lower blood pressure in those with higher blood pressure. Motherwort is generally prescribed in cases of a weak, nervous or over stimulated heart and combined with hawthorn, makes an excellent heart tonic. 

Tulsi: also known as holy basil soothes anger by encouraging feelings of love. It is thought to simultaneously stimulate the heart and sacral Chakras, thus harmonizing emotions while releasing sexual energies. Tulsi contains eugenol, and antioxidant that is considered heart disease protective as well as blood-cholesterol reducing. This herb is also anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, can be beneficial in cases of obesity, and is a fantastic reparatory remedy.

Rosemary: is highly supportive of the circulatory and nervous system, promotes good digestion and helps to improve cognitive functioning. It is also an antioxidant and anti-inflammatory, further supporting the heart, circulation, and arteries. 

Elderberry: fruit, and especially berries are SO good for the heart! Elderberries specifically are high in fiber, helping to eliminate excess cholesterol from the body. Additionally, their high levels of potassium keep blood vessels and arteries healthy and relaxed. The complex sugars in these berries are immune enhancing and the flavonoids help to reduce inflammation. Clinical studies have shown elder to reduce flu symptoms as well as the number of days one experiences those symptoms.

Cinnamon: is nourishing, warming, nausea-relieving, antibacterial, anti-viral anti-fungal, full of fiber and antioxidants, is good for the cardiovascular and respiratory systems, and has been successfully used to treat menstrual cramp pain and other inflammatory discomforts. True cinnamon has also been shown to lower a high blood pressure and blood sugar levels, and has been utilized as a hemostatic to stop bleeding internally and externally. 

Rosehips: the haw is very high in vitamin C, immune boosting, anti-inflammatory, supportive of healthy joints, protective against cold and flu, and is used to improve skin conditions. The high amount of antioxidants protects against heart disease and lowers cholesterol levels, significantly reducing strain on one's cardiovascular system.
