Warming Tea for the Fall

Ok, so I will admit to you that I love creating and blending teas, and if you have not had me blend one for you yet,then this may be a surprise. Blending teas is not only fun, but for me, calming and relaxing. Sometimes you blend a tea, then have it for awhile then go back and revisit it, then change it  a bit, then other, you leave just as they are, because that is how they should be.

 This is one of those blends that works just as it is. Chai, yes, warming, nourishing and a perfect standby in the cooler months. Chai can be simple, and yes then more complicated, so play around with the spices till you find your combination, then settle in with a cup and relax for the long winter ahead.

I like to blend a large batch of chai spices around October every year, then I have it for when I need it, and it make a wonderful holiday gift(just need a mason jar and you can create the rest from their - fast, simple gift giving).

Lets make some Chai spice mix:

Blend equal amounts of all spices above(change to your preference, I like less cinnamon and ginger)
Option additions: chage mushrooms, chickery root,vanilla 

Mix up all your spices, keep in airtight glass jar.

To make:
Bring 1 cup of water to a boil, add 1tbsp of chai spice
Simmer 20 mins
Add 1 cup milk, 1tbsp ghee(optional), simmer 10 min
Sweeten to liking, enjoy

Trust in Self

This has been a practice for me this past year. Learning to trust in self is key to allowing my personal and business to continue to move forward and grow.

As we move out of 2018 and are into 2019, we where welcomed with an incredible lunar eclipse of the blood wolf moon. This is energetically a time to stop and reboot, to speak to your true self.

In this past year, I moved my business from one location to another location while opening a second location and launching my herbal business into the public online world. While it is all very exciting and quite the learning (and yes mistakes where made, but those are to learn from also), growing and self expansion.

During this growth, I had to learn to trust. Trusting my self, could I do this, how will my clients respond, can I grow enough business and do I have a strong enough support team to make this happen.

Well here I am, three  and a half months in, and taking stock in self, that 'Yes" I can do this. Now, I have not said th…

What is "Metta Wellness"

Metta means "loving Kindness", Metta Wellness in your wellness in loving kindness. Bringing together the mind, body and spirit for a full circle of healing.

For me, I see that we all want, or strive to live in peace, harmony and balance with ourselves and the world around us. At Metta Wellness I feel it starts in the mind. The mind is a powerful element that can determine our peace and harmony. How we look at ourselves, our internal conversation, and the way we feel the world sees or views us. If we look at ourselves in pure loving kindness, we are going to walk out into the world full of love, inner strength and kindness.

With a healthy, positive and balanced mind, the body works in harmony. When we fall out of harmony in the mind the body will feel it through stress, inflammation, skin issues, anxiety over time this can result in an auto immune disorder. When the mind is struggling, and the body shares the disruption, the spirit disconnects.

When the mind, body and spirit…
