We are often finding herbal remedies popping up in publications, articles, and news clips. In conversations with friends, it has become the norm to offer or receive a recipe or tea or tincture suggestion to combat a cold, or achey joints. Even some savvy family doctors are starting to suggest chicken soup or ginger tea before writing that prescription for antibiotics.

Let’s take it one step further and think about how to spice up our love life with herbs. Everybody wants to feel loved, everybody needs to have a little fun and every relationship needs to change it up once in a while.

Herbs are for busy families

Post image for Herbs are for busy families

These days families are busier than ever with jobs and schools and commuting and fitness classes and music classes. Then there is the deluge of information about nutrition we are fortunate enough to have access to, and all the things in our diets that we should avoid; and all the things that grow strong children and prevent terrible illnesses for all of us at every stage of life. It can be quite overwhelming and many of us wish that we could be feeding our families and ourselves better. We try to find ways to change our habits and find new snacks, drinks and meals to replace old favorites, which may have too much fat, sugar, or simple carbs or not enough good nutrition.

Osteoporosis

by TeaLady on March 25, 2010

Is there a tea that is good for osteoporosis. I know it won’t cure me…but is there some kind of tea that I can benefit from?

–Thanks, Ann

I have a tea blend that I recommend for osteoporosis. It is the Oatstraw, Lavender, Lemonbalm. Aside from the fact that oatstraw is the most important herbal source of calcium, it also is very calming, supports the central nervous system and causes a good restful night of sleep. Good luck, and thanks for your interest!

Carp Farmer’s Market Opening Day

Post image for Carp Farmer’s Market Opening Day

by TeaLady on March 24, 2010

A gorgeous country market with delicious locally brewed coffee, breakfast fare and Mali’s famous Thai food to enjoy if you come a little later in the morning or lunchtime but come before noon because it closes at 1pm.

Located North on Carp road about 10 minutes from the queensway, Carp market is the original, and for many years was biggest “local only” farmers market in the area. You will find seasonal vegetables, interesting mushrooms, beautifully designed mini-cakes, gorgeous flaky pastries, herbal tea, oils and vinegars, elk, organic beef, and lamb. In the crafters building or outside you will find hand sewn dolls, photography, quilts, glasswork, goat milk soap, skin creams, knitting, jewellery and various other artistic expressions.

It’s a safe quiet and friendly market with a family atmosphere where the kids can run and enjoy the space, the sunshine and clean air.

It’s really worth the visit

I wanted to know about tea made with St. John’s Wort. Do you have such a thing? My understanding is that it is beneficial if you are under alot of stress and suffer occational bouts of depression.
