Put a little love and sweetness in your heart and your favourite mug! This soothing tea tonic has a subtle earthy ‘grassy’ with coconut overtones, the perfect antidote to any self-doubt in your life. Sweetgrass represents kindness, tenderness and has a calming affect, bringing positivity and self love into your life. Sweetgrass is considered one of the four sacred herbs of the First Nations and is used in traditional ceremonies to promote peace and healing (the other three are tobacco, cedar, and sage – which clears negative energies). The sweet vanilla scent is produced by the chemical coumarin, and is thought to evoke a calm, meditative relaxation state. Ahhh…
