Daily Dose Oxymel
Nettles (Urtica dioica): The Northeast's most underrated superfood, Nettles, or 'Stinging Nettles', are an incredible plant-based source of protein, minerals, vitamins, antioxidant flavonoids, and other essential nutrients. The fresh leaves are also particularly helpful in soothing allergies when infused in vinegars or alcohol tinctures. Many know this plant for its stinging qualities when accidentially brushed with the bare skin!
White Pine (Pinus strobus): We love White Pine for its evergreen appearance and potent antimicrobial qualities. It is one of our vest native sources of vitamin C here in the Northeast, and also makes a fantastic respiratory tonic with its aromatic profile.
Hibiscus (Hibiscus rosa-sinensis): Hibiscus is known for its big statement blooms that range in vibrant hues of reds and pinks. Studies have shown its efficacy in lowering systolic blood pressure, and it may be helpful in regulating blood sugar. It is also a notable source of vitamin C. We find that it also brightens the spirit and makes a very refreshing sun tea or tart infused vinegar.
Red Clover (Trifolium pratense): A sweet native species that is also the State Flower of the Vermont. Red Clover's botanical name, Trifolium pratense, refers to "Three leaf of the meadow", a nod to its naturalized habitat. As a legume species, Red Clover is a natural nitrogen-fixer and makes a useful addition to any cover crop mix. In TCM, Red Clover is typically reached for when there are signs of stagnation or need to gentle build qi. In the Western traditions, we look to Red Clover for its mineral contents and clearing lymphatic actions. It is said that wherever Red Clover is planted it will attract plant fairies.
