Hello Farm Family,
It feels good to be in touch right now. Funny how when we suddenly aren’t supposed to be gathering in person, even the sight of a loved one’s face on a screen can still warm us from the inside.
This moment is bringing out the hero in us. All humans are heroes at heart, of course, but it can feel hard to access that heroic nature in daily life. Now, when we’re all being reminded of our interconnectedness and interdependence upon one another, heroes are popping up everywhere: The critical care providers, truck drivers, nurses, social workers, checkout clerks and countless others who are helping us cope. It’s one of the many hidden treasures of this surreal moment.
So, how do we find our inner heroes? The hero’s journey is full of trials and challenges, and we need energy to sustain us, grounded clarity to help us make wise choices, and ironclad fortitude to stay true to our goals and our purpose.
We crafted a special formula to facilitate the hero’s journey. Our Hero's Blend™ is a spagyric tincture designed to provide support throughout the day, whether you're feeling underwhelmed, overwhelmed or just need a little extra “something” to bring you more fully into the moment, and to be your best self. We looked to four crucial goals as inspiration:
- Grounding us into the earth
- Attuning to the cosmos
- Centering into our hearts
- Protecting us from the chaotic energies of the world
Whereas many of us are turning to Ashwagandha for anxiety and other herbs for stress in this moment, Hero's Blend™ is a little bit different: A clarifying organic herbal tincture, Hero's Blend™ is designed to foster creative expression, help focus your critical thinking, and ground deeper into meditation.
Hero's Blend™: A Spagyric Tincture for Clarity and Grounding
We based it on our classic Ashwagandha spagyric tincture, adding a selection of other powerful herbs—Japanese Knotweed, Red Belted Polypore (a cousin of Reishi), Devil’s Club, Passion Flower and Yarrow, among others—to create an uplifting blend that fosters focus and clarity. Here are some of the attributes we sought out in specific herbs:
- Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera): Grounding and calm energy
- Japanese Knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum): Grounding and intuition
- Red Belted Polypore (Fomitopsis pinicola): Strong buoyancy and clarity
- Devil’s Club (Oplopanax horridus): Protection and activation
- Passion Flower (Passiflora caerulea): Calm and understanding
- Yarrow (Achillea millefolium): Clarity and protection
- Rose (Rosa spp.): Love and compassion
If you’d like to purchase a bottle of this truly unique tincture for yourself, visit the Hero's Blend™ page.
However you use it, it’s our heartfelt hope that Hero's Blend™ helps ground you into your own heroic nature, however that expresses itself. We created it with loving care and a commitment to offering grounding, attuning, centering and protective herbs to those in our community.
With Warm (and Heroic) Ashwagandha Wishes,
