SuperFeast Crew: Our Fave Herbs

SuperFeast Crew

We get asked heaps at HQ "...but which herbs do *you* take?" Today the crew share their favorite tonic herbs :)

 

ELENA

JING blend all day!  Total lifesaver, a game-changer. I’ll have a heaped teaspoon in hot water before my morning coffee or instead of, then another in the early afternoon. Gives a sense of easily maintained energy throughout the day. A ‘JING’ in my step!

 

Mason’s Mushrooms for everything. Mixed with coffee, in smoothies, baked goods, pasta sauce, soups, sauces, stews, you name it, I add it! Versatile taste. My gut health has never been better :) I rarely get sick which is a plus. I call this my foundational health must-have. Absolute staple.

 

My fave smoothie boosters: Beauty Blendor Neural Nectar. I find their taste complements fruit really well and I’ll put a teaspoon in for my breakfast smoothie depending on what I’m seeing support with.

 

I Am Gaia has been a wonderful support in my quest for balanced hormones and reproductive health. It has been a focus of mine for some time now and to have a blend that speaks directly to that is huge and has been such a godsend. She tastes lovely and feels so feminine and nourishing. Love it in hot tonics, usually for a pre-bedtime ritual. It accompanies my candlelit journaling, stretching, meditating bedtime practice.

 

 


ELIE

Reishi is my best friend, she was the first SuperFeast herb I ever took and has been my trusted sidekick ever since.  I love her in my morning brew and in a cuppa before bed. She holds my hand, gives me cuddles, keeps me warm and light and fuzzy and I love her.

 

FARLEY (ME!)

I continue to explore these herbs as I would when meeting possible new friends, getting to know them, working out if we're just a good match or a realllly good match. 

 

Chaga has really taken my fancy in the last few months - I can't intellectually tell you why,  but I know I am really enjoying it's dark, earthy flavor and it feels good for me, when it stops feeling good, I'll give it a rest.

I've also had lovely relationships with Mason’s Mushroomsblend and Ashwagandha... and I look forward to welcoming them back in when the time is right ;)

 

And always, Queen Reishi. Whenever I am feeling a little ungrounded, or sleeping habits have been less than ideal, I will give reishi a good run.

 

 

MASON

I'm back taking large doses of Mason’s Mushrooms. I'd been focused on individual mushrooms for ages, and felt great, but it's been really nice to get big tbsp doses of all the mushies in again and feel how well-rounded my systems feel when I do. The only way I can describe it is that my body is able to integrate way faster when I'm on doses like this, as well as my immune system getting a daily upgrade, which is a nice bonus.

 

SARAH

It is so hard to pick a favorite!

I Am Gaia has been my main support while working to address blood and Yang deficiency. I love it blended as a hot tonic with some MCT coconut oil when I am reaching for that next coffee I know I don't need.

 

    SOPHIA

    I like moving, I think a lot and am driven by a passionate nature, for me my herbal practice is all about supporting my foundations and daily output so I don’t overcook myself. The philosophy behind these herbs is gently teaching me how to do this and it’s a fun ride and curious ride.

    I generally flow with whatever resonates intuitively, for a little while this has been a morning  Neural Nectar.  This supports my morning movement practice and gets me in the flow.

    Throughout the day I’ll get some mushrooms in: Mason's are my go-to, lately I’m feeling some additional Chaga to support my sleep cycle so that’s popping in where it pleases. I’ll either do a simple tea or mix into a hot choco.

     

    Before bed, it’s a pungent combo of ashwag and Reishi to mellow out the nervous system. He Shou Wu has been joining the slumber party to nourish the Yin lately, deepening the flavor load to the old taste buds, woof! It ain't for the faint-hearted but it does the trick.

     

    TAHNEE

    I Am Gaia is on regular rotation as I work to build Blood and to nourish my cycle.

    Mason’s Mushrooms is a regular in our house, I take it most days, add it to food, give it to toddler Aiya and Goji dog, eat it off the spoon. It's just a great all-rounder to have on hand.

     

     

    Chaga is a fave for the depth of flavor it brings to sweets (I've made a lot of chocolate birthday cakes lately!) and for its nourishing effects.

     

    WAZZA

    Reishi and chamomile put me straight into a deep sleep every night. I used to always have problems falling asleep

       

      Anyway, remember this guys: any herb is better than none!

      The Year of the Yin Metal Ox

      by Tahnee McCrossin February 15, 2021

      In Chinese folklore, the story of the Ox is that she was a star, removed from the heavens by the gods and goddesses to help humans. The gods and goddesses told Ox to help humans cultivate enough food to eat every three days - but Ox got muddled and told the humans she was here to help them eat three times a day - oops! For that reason, Ox has been helping humans by working all day long to ensure we produce enough food to eat regular meals.
