Prepare your herbs and tea for the upcoming Spring Equinox
Monday, March 20th marks this year's Spring Equinox, when the sun will sit directly over our Earth's equator as it continues north. Also known as the Vernal Equinox, it is seen as a day open to surpassing limitations. It's a time to gather your herbs and loved ones and connect with the grounding feeling of nature.
You can perform a simple Spring Equinox ritual by finding a space, preferably outdoors, to sit and meditate. Surround your spot with herbs such as Cardamom, Lemongrass, or Ginger. And harness the energy of Mars with flowers, dried or fresh, like Honeysuckle or Calendula.
Other herbs most commonly associated with spring include:
Equinox Tea Pairing
While you sit in quiet reflection, enjoy a cup of herbal tea geared toward opening your mind to inner discovery. Our Citrus Bliss promotes a sense of well-being and helps in releasing negative thoughts. Its fresh blend of lemongrass, ginger root, orange peel, and apple pieces delights the senses and inspires new growth by way of letting go of the things that no longer serve us.
Or, try our Inner Glow herbal tea blend. This tea is great to enjoy at any time of the day. It has a mellow, earthy aroma with floral hints, completed by a sweet aftertaste. It will restore your inner strength, fill you with love and let you surrender to the flow of life.
However you choose to celebrate this Spring's Equinox, we hope you do it with positive, forward-thinking, and intention. Let us know how you plan to observe this year's Spring Equinox in the comments below!
