Sunny Day Latte
I am a firm believer Mother Nature gifts us what we need. This year Goldenrod was everywhere. I had an abundance in my gardens and I didn’t even plant it! Goldenrod has a history of being used for seasonal allergies, an expectorant, a respiratory ally and a kidney restorative. Sounds about perfect for these times!
In TCM the emotion connected to the kidneys is fear. This is an emotion that many are experiencing. Goldenrod with its beautiful sunny disposition is also is seen as an ‘uplifter. Hence my obsession with goldenrod this year. Unless you harvest yourself it’s not easy to find dried goldenrod. Luckily, Boreal Heartland’s ‘Relaxation’ tea is made up of goldenrod, Labrador tea and nettle, plus we sell it at The Big Carrot. Boreal Heartland is a wonderful Canadian Indigenous company from northern Saskatchewan. I added some key ingredients to make a super-charged immune and mood-enhancing latte.
