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 generalmehfeeling. 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.
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.
This morning, as I was checking on the garden, I noticed a cute little lady bug on a tomato leaf. Ladybugs are seen as good luck to most—and that applies to the garden as well. Find out how this ladybug sparked continuous moments of gratitude throughout the rest of my day.
The earth is alive and shifting with the seasons—and we, too, live amongst those rhythms and flows. As spring returns, once again, we have the opportunity to care for our skin and self with simple shifts in our personal care and daily rituals that connect us deeper to the earth and to ourselves.
