Spirit Herbs Chakra Flower Teas
Organic . Wild . Hand gathered . Air dried
Our chakras act as energetic portals between our physical body and the Universe. When they are in a healthy state, we feel in sycronistic alignment with our Soul purpose. We are able to give and receive our love with the community. We feel grounded and a sense of deep connection to the natural world. We are able to take action on health enhancing practices, and feel like we live regularly with a clear mind, calm body, and open heart. A cool thing is that science now shows that our physical body actually has nerve bundles along our spine that relate to the chakras that yogis have experienced since the beginning of time.
I first began working with the connection between herbs and the chakras when I was in psychic school in Portland in the late 1980’s. I was a Herbalist first, then when I was doing psychic readings, herbs would come forward for me to share with clients to keep their chakras moving so they could benefit from Universal life force energy. This led to the creation of Spirit Herbs Chakra Elixirs to fill the need.
Now skip ahead, with 30 more years of working with subtle energies, and my desire to share the beautiful flowers that I grow organically and gather wild for you in these lovely teas. Here’s more about the intent and spiritual properties of the herbs behind each tea. We’ll start with the root Chakra for grounding since our earth journey is about learning how to anchor our spiritual energy in our physical body.

To make a perfect cup of Spirit Herbs Flower tea:
To make a beverage style tea, steep the herbs for 3-5 minutes in a glass container of hot water where they can float around. This allows the most interface and absorption between the plant material and the hot water. For a medicinal quality tea, I recommend steeping the herbs for about 20 minutes. After the steeping time, strain off the herbs and compost them or dry them for future blessing herbs. Enjoy Spirit Herbs Chakra Flower Teas hot or cold. It’s fun to make sun teas when the weather is warm by placing 1 teaspoon dried herbs per cup of water in a glass jar and let it absorb spectral healing rays of the sun for a few hours.
