⊙ Leo and the Sun are imbued into our Lion's Heart Tonic - per medical astrology, they both are connected to the body through the heart. Leo governs those vital forces that move through the blood, and is connected to disease tendencies such as poor circulation and general heart trouble. The Sun gives light to support life on Earth, just as the heart gives life to the body. The symbol of a green lion/Leo devouring the Sun can be found in old alchemy texts. This has several meaning - one of which is a representation of sunlight converting to chlorophyll and thus creating vital energy in the form of edible and medicinal plants. The heart provides vital energy (blood) to the body in a similar way. 

"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

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, and can be beneficial in cases of obesity.

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.
