Are your drinks Organic?

The herbs in our elixirs are all organic. One of our missions is to support as many small, independent herb farmers and growers as we possibly can. These growers can’t always afford an organic certification, though they still work with organic practices and, in some cases, even exceed them. As we continue to develop our supply chain in accordance with our values, we will use the plants grown by these farms more and more. We are weighing out the benefit of getting an organic certification for our elixirs while making sure not to be prevented from supported small farmers around the world.

Are your drinks Raw?

Our drinks are not raw. Each batch is hand brewed to draw out the most vital constituents of dried plant material we can deliver. Herbal elixirs should not be confused with raw fruit and vegetable juices, though they are often even more nutritious and beneficial to the body than those healthy drinks.

Are your drinks safe for kids?

Yes, they are safe for kids and beneficial for them too. Kids love the fresh, juicy flavors and elixirs are a great way to get kids the nourishment their growing bodies need.

Are your drinks Vegetarian, Vegan, Paleo, Gluten Free, Non Gmo?

All of our drinks are vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, and non GMO. We are working on our Non-Gmo certification and will update you as we move the process along.

The Formula

According to Traditional Chinese Medicine, the sweet fragrances contained in floral herbs nourish the spirit and relax the mind, promoting calm, ease and presence of mind.
Our health and well-being is largely dependent on having a relaxed disposition and mental state. When we experience excess tension and stress it drains energy and ultimately weakens the body.

Ideally there is an underlying calmness we can access. Calming is a path toward strength, as it relieves the tension that stagnates and congests the flow of energy. Relaxation produces the chemistry that restores us and offers us greater vitality.

Lavendar Bliss tonic contains an assortment of flowers long-trusted for their gentle harmonizing effects and delicious flavors. The main flowers in Lavendar Bliss are native to Southern France, and infuse this tonic with the climate and mindset indigenous to the region. Drink your Lavendar Bliss.

Uses & Benefits

Lavendar Bliss is an excellent way to punctuate moments of restoration throughout the day, but is particularly well-suited for end-of-day relaxation. Mental and emotional tension accumulates in the body which prevents proper energy flow. Well-timed calming breaks throughout the day are incredibly beneficial to your holistic system.

One of the foremost yoga teachers in the world, B.K.S. Iyengar, said, “Breath is the king of the mind.” The miraculous power that flowers possess in their sweet fragrances can be combined with breathing techniques to penetrate deeper into the nervous system.

Propelled by breath, the molecules of a flower’s aromatic relaxation properties are absorbed directly into our energy channels, thus permeating the body and mind with nature’s tranquil pharmacopeia.
