Inflammation and soft tissue damage falls into the category of “this happens, a lot.” Like colds and flus and fevers and female monthly stuff, it seemed like an issue we should have a tea for.
This tea was born during the creation of ‘Joyous Joints,’ a tea made when I blended a soft tissue damage tea for one of our god-daughters. The two pair well, with this one having a focus towards keeping your body and your mind a bit more at ease during the process of recovering from a soft tissue injury.
Sage Soother contain Sage, Hops, and Lobelia for general inflammation issues and to help gentle the spasm response. These herbs will also help your body and mind to relax, to make healing easier and more likely. The Lemon Balm and Oatstraw are included for nutritive support, assistance with the tension (nervous and otherwise) that occurs when you are in pain, and for flavour. Due to EU/UK laws regarding Lobelia, we offer two variations on this tea. One of them replaces the Lobelia in the original formulation with Passionflower. It fulfills the same general functions, but is a bit less potent on the anti-spasmodic aspect.
This tea should not be drunk while pregnant or nursing, in either variation. Additionally, if you are a smoker, Lobelia and Nicotine target the same receptors in the brain, so if you are using the original version of the tea, and smoke… either the tea or the cigarettes are going to be less effective.
Now for the basics:
Organic Ingredients: Sage, Hops, Lobelia (or Passionflower), Oatstraw, and Lemon Balm
Batch Weight: 1.6 ounces (approximately 40-45 cups of tea)
Options: Loose (Bag or Tin), Single Serving Sachets
**I am not a doctor. The FDA (and a myriad of other agencies) have not decided that any of this is fact. While we draw on science as well, for the most part, even when there is research indicating the efficacy of herbs, they have not been formalized as treatment metholodologies. Thus this information is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease from a medical standpoint.
