Ah, summer! My favorite. As we shift into more heat, sunshine, and outdoor play time, it's an opportunity to hydrate, feed, and protect our skin to keep our skin healthy, supple, and strong with simple but mindful shifts in our personal care and daily rituals that connect us deeper to the earth and to ourselves.
As we shift into fall, the temperatures drop along with the humidity—both indoor and outdoor. Pair this with most people staying indoors and it results in more colds, coughs, and flus and a general meh feeling. That's why, when the leaves start to fall, I start incorporating zesty ginger tea into my daily fall ritual.
An a holistic herbalist, I'm naturally passionate about integrative health care practices through the seasons. As we begin to shift from summer to fall, I wanted to share some of my favorite daily practices and rituals with you to stay healthy this season and beyond.
My healthy, homemade chai recipe includes fresh ginger root and other warming spices and herbs to increase circulation during the fall and winter which is a simple way to boost your immune system and blood flow, boost digestion, and give you a healthy, herbal alternative to daily coffee consumption.
